ABOUT PRODUCER
kz is a popular electronic-genre Vocaloid producer known for his work with Miku, most notably "Tell Your World". He has used the name RE:NDZ for his non-Vocaloid work and his "P name" is ダイソンP (Daison-P),[1] from the misheard phrase "Light Song" in the song of the same name. One of the earliest popular authors of Miku songs, most of kz's works have become hits, beginning with "Packaged", one of Hatsune Miku's most popular post-release songs. kz is skilled at creating reverberant technopop tracks.

The amateur music circle livetune, of which kz is currently the sole member, released an album of Miku tracks titled Re:Package at the end of 2007. It was then resold to Victor Entertainment with a major circulation release on August 28, 2008, making it the first Hatsune Miku CD to be sold by a major label. kz has been the sole member of livetune since 2009.

Although he has not been active on Niconico since late 2008, kz has moved to YouTube and uploaded a number of songs there. He is also a DJ (being known to wear crazy patterned hoodies during his public appearances) and has released a number of songs outside the VOCALOID scene. His musical inspirations include Ryuichi Sakamoto, Daft Punk, and Zedd.
