Real Name:
中原龍太郎 (Ryutaro Nakahara)
Ryutaro Nakahara, better known as Ryu☆, first appeared in beatmania IIDX 4th style after winning a musicianship trial along with kors k, sanctioned by KONAMI for beatmania IIDX. He is currently one of the most active artists in BEMANI, having at least one new song for each new game on every active BEMANI series except for MÚSECA and ノスタルジア.
Ryu☆ is one of the artists in EXIT TUNES (he's an Executive Director). Many of his recent works for BEMANI are licensed by EXIT TUNES. Outside of BEMANI and EXIT TUNES, Ryu☆ regularly appears in the HARDCORE SYNDROME (HARDCORE TANO*C) series of albums and in various S2TB Recording releases.

Ryutaro is known for being one of the most prominent figures in Japanese hardcore, dabbling into every hardcore genre, even speedcore. He's also proficient on dance music like bubblegum dance, handz up and lately, EDM and dubstep.
Together with Xceon, they've made themselves a name into J-POP as well, frequently collaborating with Mayumi Morinaga on a handful of songs, including two for the TV anime adaptation of FAIRY TAIL.
