The masses have demanded a followup to "シュミックトリガ！" almost immediately after the first one came out and this is exactly what we got with 「シュミックトリガ2-Psychocrush A-POP!!-」, right down to 70% returning composers. さつき が てんこもり, MAX VEGETABLE and デッドボールP are out, but were replaced with らいふ, ピノキオP and... おでんぱ☆スタジオ!
azuma's contribution will also be featured on SEGA's 2014 Project 575 Vita game, although this is a special version using 結月ゆかり and 蒼姫ラピス just for beatlogic's compilation. ふなむし has a unique soft and spacey sound and I can't wait to hear the full version because it seems to be full of surprises. Phasma follows adequately with a slower electronica tune laced with pico pico elements in the background.
My man cello cranks the BPM right back up with his Akiba-themed symphony. I really can't stress enough how much his solo album belong in every denpa fan's collection, but this is another great example of his creativity and attention to detail. Believe it or not, this guy started doing hardstyle touhou arranges on the side. Hopefully this wasn't just a one-off because I'd totally buy a full album!
ぶっちぎりP had one of the most memorable songs on the previous compilation and this one is a great successor (check out the full length PV). This may be ピノキオP's first beatlogic track, but he is certainly not new to the scene! The veteran will also be on SEGA's vita title but for now his new song 「こどものしくみ」 is exclusive to this compilation.
Finally, you might remember らいふ for his delightful 「DENPA for JAPAN」 song composed shortly after the Tohoku tragedy, but this new one is a lot happier and a perfect finish to a perfect compilation. Albums like this show all too well that the original virtual diva still is far from done playing with our minds. All hail our Miku overlord!
