“Under My Skin” / Masochistic… I mean… Mirotic

As a YouTuber, I’m pretty much an unknown entity. When I first created the channel, I merely used it as an outlet to vent my musical urges and endeavors. I didn’t actively pursue a fan base or subscribers or anything like that. I saw it basically as a place to share what I love and enjoy (… with nobody :P).

There were a few videos I posted that actually got a decent amount of attention. However, a majority of those were just posts of songs that I pulled from an anime soundtrack.

I was stuck on the J-Rock phase for quite a while and that would be the only thing coming out of my car speakers and headphones. My hobby of anime watching continued to feed me in that area as I’d discover newer songs from the shows I’d watch. I also began to follow a few artists as a result (ecosystem, 9mm, and Prague). I do still listen to it on occasion, but there’s a new sound emanating from these cans of mine. I must confess that this latest one definitely caught me off guard and I wasn’t expecting to get into it as much as I did. What genre is that?
