Mitchie M is a Japanese music producer.

About the Artist

From the age of six, he became interested in piano. As a student, he became interested in desktop music (DTM) and studied music production. After graduating, he worked as a composer, arranger, and sound producer. He uploaded FREELY TOMORROW on July 31, 2011 on Nico Nico Douga and achieved the fastest view count thus far under the Nico Nico Douga Vocaloid category. It reached 100,000 views in 10 hours and 40 minutes. On August 20, at 6:04 AM, his song reached 1 million views which was the fastest for a Vocaloid song ever. It currently stands at over 3 million views on Nico Nico Douga and 500,000 on YouTube. It is not uncommon for his other highly-rated songs to have 2-4 million views on YouTube.

Mitchie M's style of music is very upbeat J-Pop and fans embrace the joy expressed in the lyrics, music, and video clips. His method of tweaking Hatsune Miku's vocals to sound almost human gave him massive popularity throughout the Vocaloid community, both internationally and nationally. It is often described as "God-like tuning" by the fanbase.

Although extremely successful with his productions, he is rarely seen in public and very few fans have seen him in person. To celebrate the release of his album Greatest Idol, there was a meet and greet session at Tsutaya music store in Shibuya, Tokyo. It was the first time and only time that fans could talk with the musician. Over 150 people were in attendance and those who purchased the album from the store on the day would be able to have a brief chat with the musician, though photos were strictly prohibited. The event was planned to last only two hours but ended up going over three hours due to the number of fans. The album would go on to reach 4th place in the Oricon Daily charts, and 6th in the Weekly charts. In November 2019, his 2nd album Virtual Pop Star was released through Warner Music Japan.
Despite his private life, Mitchie M is very active on his social media and often replies to fans directly via Twitter and Facebook. In addition, he also comments on fan-made YouTube videos, whether they be covers or remixes of his work, showing his appreciation for the effort.
Furthermore, Mitchie M maintains activity on his YouTube account and will regularly upload new musical creations to it. His videos always come with English closed captions to allow for greater international reach and while his videos generally hover around the 200,000 views mark, his recent song Assassin Princess has already garnered over one million views within the first three months of its release.
The most popular songs from his YouTube channel are Viva Happy (12 million views), Burenai ai de (8 million views), and Ohedo Julia-Night (5.7 million views) which features Hatsune Miku and KAITO who sing about wanting to dance and party to relieve themselves of their troubles.

In 2015, Mitchie M was in charge of tuning Hatsune Miku for famous J-Pop singer Namie Amuro's song, B Who I Want 2 B feat.HATSUNE MIKU. In 2016, his music appeared for Unilever's hair care brand Lux and in 2017, his music appeared in a collaborative television commercial White Cat Project and Hatsune Miku.

Mitchie M primarily uses Hatsune Miku as his Vocaloid of choice.
