Yuma Uchida

Yuma Uchida is certainly on a mission with his 5th anniversary digital single series, and “DangeR” is a remarkable addition to his repertoire.

DangeR” is available on streaming platforms worldwide.

Track analysis:

1 – DangeR

Yuma Uchida arrives with “DangeR” and let me tell you, what is awaiting you is a never-heard song by Uchida.

Distorted synths disrupt the soundscape as a booming bassline pounds in the background.

The intro is intense and rather “in your face” as the sound is really close to you, the listener.

The verses put the spotlight on Yuma Uchida’s tenor vocals as he blends clean singing for the very first part of the verse, smoothly transitioning to rapping in the latter part leading up to the dreamy pre-chorus.

The chorus is a thing of beauty. The bassline hits really low, the snare is tight and powerful, the synths while disruptive, manage to be quite easy to the ears and the vocals by Yuma Uchida stand out with surprising ease in such a busy song.

“Desire” and “danger” are the two concepts at the core of this song, with the composition reflecting that sense of danger as Yuma Uchida goes all out to smoothly illustrate the concept of “desire”.

The bridge puts emphasis on those concepts, with a beautiful piano echoing in the wide soundscape – the only time it happens in this song -, creating the stage for Uchida to lower his voice tone, contrasting with it.

The last chorus brings out the power and intensity of the tight chorus that, by now, you are well familiar with (and perhaps quite addicted to by now).

“DangeR” is certainly a big departure from Yuma Uchida’s sound and concept yet it felt and sounded really good.

Uchida fits this mature, passionate, and “masculine” vibe like a glove. Desire, forbidden love, and danger seem to work well with Uchida as a performer. His tone in the clean singing parts is surprisingly seductive which is a big departure from his style but then again, it sounds so good.

His voice can do amazing things and his versatility enables him to shift from his clean, technical singing to rapping and you will not even notice the shift. 

And the sound you get in this song is exciting, intense, and engaging at all times. While there are many things going on in it, the mixing is well done to the point that you know there is a lot going on but you can tell everything apart, not to mention the vocals are clean and powerful at center, with everything else surrounding Uchida.

When “DangeR” wraps up, I am left wanting more from Yuma Uchida (as well as wishing that he revisits this concept in future releases).
