Gensokyo Radio 6 Release Date

Greetings, listeners!

If you were around for Live #26, you've already heard the news. For everyone else, this is news you've been waiting to hear for a long time. We have a release date scheduled for GR6.

"GR6" is Gensokyo Radio's 6th website version; version 6.0. We've got a lot slated for this version of the site including fixes to elements of GSR5 which have been out of commission for some time.

It's also important to note that the release schedule for GR6 will be incremental. That means that we'll be releasing the GR6 website along with what we've considered to be the most vital elements of the website. As we progress, we'll be supplementing GR6 with additional features leading up to the release of some of the most complex and unique features we've set our sights on.

Here's some of what we have in store for the primary release of GR6:

  • Completely overhauled website and design
  • Designed from the ground up to be compatible with tablets and mobile devices using responsive design
  • Live song information system rebuilt using Gensokyo Radio's proprietary Advanced Information Management System (AIMS)
  • Simplified user registration process
  • Brand new custom player for standard web browsers (excludes some mobile devices)

  • After the primary release, we'll be working to complete the experience with an improved song ratings system, listener song history, individualized statistics and recommendations, and much more.

    GR6 goes live on December 6th, 2014.

    Thanks for listening! ~

    "TOHO R&B HOUSE Party Vol.3" by Halozy

    Back in February I reviewed Halozy's album “TOHO R&B HOUSE Party Vol.2” which I happened to be something I just stumbled on. So in between dumping buckets of ice water on my head, getting a new job, and Comiket 86, Halozy dropped “TOHO R&B HOUSE Party Vol.3” which I was getting really excited about after I heard the crossfade. Knowing what to expect this time around, I was wondering if this album was going to just as much fun as the last one.

    Now to put this whole review into context, I overslept so I was needing to get on the road as soon as I showered. So this entire review was done over one shift. Granted that I could have done it at any other time, I needed to listen to this album as soon as possible, I went to extreme lengths to make sure this album review was done.

    As soon as you press play, you are confronted with “HEY DJ! PUT YOUR HANDS UP!” My first thoughts where, “Oh, this is going to be a blast already.” Sadly, as bad as I wanted to dance to this track, I was driving to work. What is nice about this track, titled “Hey DJ,” is that the sing has an audience in the background, which adds to the feeling of wanting to join in on the dance party. The drop though, that is the part that made me hate the fact I couldn't dance.

    A couple tracks down is a song “Kill DJ,” which had me perplexed since we are already telling the DJ to put his hands up. It made me think, “are we now the music police? Are we arresting the DJ for throwing a jammn' party? Did they have a weapon and that is why we needed to kill the DJ?” All of that thought dropped when the song did. I was just dancing uncontrollably while inspecting car parts.

    The track that was the most fun tho, was “厄神様のジレンマ.” It is a Rap track. At some points, I thought I was listening to a Japanese version of Pitbull. What is really cool about the track is that I don't think I heard something like outside this album. Which is a shame since I just now decided I really dig this style.

    All I have to say about this album is HEY TOUHOU DJs! WHY ISN'T THIS IN YOUR CURRENTLY PLAYLIST! For real, this album is the first album in a long time that I wanted to dance the full length to. There is a lot of really good vocalist featured in this album too, like ℃iel and nachi. This album is so far my favorite album of C86, but then again I have yet to listen to any of the metal that has come out of it.
