“Tokyo rat city (東京ラットシティ)”, the new promotional video from CY8ER puts a more familiar sound to good use for Rinahamu. The Eastern inflected rhythms and sounds manifest early with the plucked sounds of a koto quickly giving rise to more modern sounds of Yunomi‘s production. In keeping with the VR of Tokyo Reality sho, the dance shots of the girls are augmented with 3d renderings of rats, rats, and more rats. TOKYO, the first major album from CY8ER, goes on sale January 22, 2020.
CY8ER (formerly known as BPM15Q) is a “new age vocal & DJ unit.” The name BPM15Q referred to both of the original members, with 15 referencing Ichigo Rinahamu (1 = ichi, 5 = go), and Q referencing Nicamoq. Rinahamu serves as the producer. Nicamoq left in late 2016, and 2 members joined in 2017, 3 members later joined in April 2017. At the same time, the group changed their name to CY8ER. CY8ER’s musical genre is commonly described as a mix of Future Bass and Drum & Bass, both subgenres of EDM. CY8ER’s current lineup includes members Ichigo Rinahamu (苺りなはむ), Koinumaru Pochi (小犬丸ぽち), Suzukawa Mashiro (or just Mashiro) (涼川ましろ), Yamaiyume Yammy (病夢やみい), and Fujishiro Anna (藤城アンナ).
