Twitch streamer ‘TheSushiDragon’ may have raised the bar for every other creator on the platform, thanks to his top-tier production value and insane live streams.

A clip from his stream, shared to Twitter by esports analyst Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, showcased one of TheSushiDragon’s more extreme broadcasts – an insane dance number, complete with a plethora of special effects and head-banging EDM.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg; TheSushiDragon’s streams all follow a similar, crazy pattern, showcasing his impressive blend of technology, effects, and dancing.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, TheSushiDragon implements these jaw-dropping effects by himself in real time, editing as he goes with the help of a special setup connected to four PCs.

The PCs are connected to a series of devices strapped to his wrists, which the streamer uses to edit his broadcasts – along with a whopping total of 12 cameras and voice controls.

TheSushiDragon’s production rivals that of major Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect, who is known throughout the internet for his slick transitions and his infamous, green-screen ‘arena.’

TheSushiDragon made his big break upon receiving a host from another streamer, after losing his job in the middle of a broadcast. Lucky for him, the streamer got partnered with Twitch within the same week – giving his former prospects a major 180 degree turn

In fact, TheSushiDragon used to stream out of his closet, due to noise complaints from his neighbors. 

Now, the streamer is bent on providing excitement to his audience with every broadcast – and it seems to be working out in his favor, thus far.

JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “JakeNBake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

JakeNBake is the latest Twitch streamer to be caught up in the DMCA drama.

JakeNBake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is JakeNBake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

JakeNBake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

JakeNBake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on JakeNBake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned Abramson could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Abramson, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to clear his entire video back-catalog in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

JakeNBake also plans to counter-claim, but admitted he was “scared.”

“My fear is if I counter-claim this, and some computer in China turns around at me and just goes ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you,’ and starts pinging me for everything I’ve ever done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
