STGCC 2014:STGCC announces first line-up of pop culture personalities

Finally,finally,finally...I have been waiting for this for a long time. The details of the first wave of  pop culture personalities are annouced for STGCC 2014.

From the East

From the East, STGCC has invited three renowned DJs from Japan, each highly-regarded for their work in the different realms of Japanese music – Anisong, Touhou and Vocaloid. Inu, D.watt and sasakure.UK will take to the stage on the first night of the two-day convention with a two-hour music showcase that will bring the house down. Spinning the latest hits from popular Japanese games and anime, this STGCC DJ Night will be the first in Singapore to feature all three music genres on the same stage.

Since his destined encounter with the popular anime Sailor Moon, Inu has been hooked on the Anisong genre and has dedicated himself to anime sound track production. His latest pieces include the rearrangement of anime theme songs from Sengoku Collection.

D.watt has released more than 250 CDs with the notoriously famous IOSYS, a Japanese musical ensemble known for their Doujin (self-published works) releases from the Touhou Project series (a popular Japanese doujin game series) and the Denpa music genre. The group is a regular contributor of tunes for popular arcade games such as Beatmania IIDX by Konami and Maimai by Sega.
P.S: Touhou fans you read right...IOSYS IS COMING TO SINGAPORE 

“Do Vocaloids Dream of Doomsday Bird?” is sasakure.UK’s major debut in 2010, blasting his name to fame in the Vocaloid world. His music outlook is characterised by a distinct pop flavour with a deep atmosphere, interjected with blip-bloppy chiptune sounds as well as changing key and rhythm. Some of his famous songs are frequently used in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva rhythm games as well!

From the West

Humberto Ramos’ affinity with everyone’s favourite web-head dates back in 2003 when he started working on both Peter Parker and Spectacular Spiderman for Marvel Comics. With his distinct manga style artwork, Ramos has made a name for himself and is currently working on the newly re-launched Amazing Spider-Man series, drawing some of the best characters to date featuring Electro, Black Cat and Silk.

Creative artist Alex Solis (or alexmdc in the T-shirt world) is one of the most successful artists on Threadless, an online platform where the top voted designs make its way onto T-shirts and other apparels. In an attempt to address the relationship between fast food and obesity, he came up with a series of humorous depictions of what would happen to superheroes if fast food becomes part of their daily diet. Check out his oversized Batman and Superman at STGCC!

The popular tokidoki brand is a classic staple of STGCC, with fans lining around the block to meet Simone Legno, the charismatic creator behind the hugely successful pop culture phenomenon. An Italian with an undying passion for Japanese culture, Legno has worked on many high profile design projects for big brands such as Volkswagen and Microsoft.
