While she just made her official streaming debut on September 12th, VTuber Mori Calliope has already announced the release of a free digital EP.

DEAD BEATS contains six tracks: Reaper ka Rapper?, Shitsurei shimasu ga, RIP, DEAD BEATS, Live Again and instrumental and acapella versions of Shitsurei shimasu ga, RIP. Calliope produced all of the tracks herself except for Shitsurei shimasu ga, RIP, which was produced by kokorobeats (aka K's/Coro), who also mixed and mastered all of the songs. The four original songs from the release are available for streaming via YouTube and Soundcloud.  

Calliope is one of the five new VTubers that debuted this month as part of the newly-established Hololive English project, which was launched after the company began auditioning new talent from English-speaking countries earlier this year. Unlike most of Hololive's VTubers until now, the majority of her content is in English, although she is also able to respond to comments in Japanese and works Japanese into her lyrics as well.

Calliope's character is the Grim Reaper's first apprentice. It is said that she became a VTuber to collect souls due to the dramatic advancements in the world's medical system as "the lost souls vaporized by the wholesome relationships of VTubers flow through her as well". The official name for Calliope's fans is "Dead Beats".

In addition, to celebrate Shitsurei shimasu ga, RIP reaching a million views on YouTube, she has launched a remix and cover event. Stem data for the track and instrumental and acapella versions of the song can be downloaded here, and details on the contest and prizes can be found in the photos from this Twitter post.
