CY8ER (formerly known as BPM15Q) is a "new age vocal & DJ unit." The name BPM15Q referred to both of the members, with 15 referencing Ichigo Rinahamu (1 = ichi, 5 = go), and Q referencing Nicamoq. Rinahamu serves as the producer. 2 members joined in 2017, 3 members later joined in April 2017. The group also changed their name to CY8ER. CY8ER's musical genre is commonly described as a mix of Future Bass and Drum & Bass, both subgenres of EDM. They will be participating in the 7th annual Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN and bringing excitement to an international sport event.
They are performing and participate in the event with all the other runners. A special mini-live event called Kick-off NIGHT!, which is open to the public, will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center on the night before the Honolulu Rainbow EKIDEN and will cheer runners from the stage!
