BanYa (반야), sometimes spelled BANYA or Banya, is South Korean Andamiro's musical group responsible for creating original songs for Pump It Up. The style of its music varies greatly, from hip hop to electronic, from rock to classical crossovers.

Classical remixes are among Banya's most popular productions. Several sonatas, symphonies and other pieces feature in different versions. Mixing violins, guitars and heavy beats, these songs draw particular attention from players and passers-by. BanYa also composes original music including trance, techno, hardcore and ambient breaks.

Beginning in NX, former BanYa member Yahpp became a solo artist and in turn his new music became credited to him. Starting in Fiesta, msgoon, another former member, did the same. All other former members, starting on NX, became credited as "BanYa Production". For the consistency of the article, all songs by the original BanYa collective are listed here.

Song catalogue[edit]

The group's first two releases under the name of Banya were Ignition Starts and Hypnosis, although Bee, Solitary and The Final Audition had been already recorded by Yahpp as an independent artist. Up to 2004 they released 3 albums, however some nonstop remixes of several BanYa songs have also been made for Pump It Up.

On Exceed 2, Radezky Can Can was moved from the "K-Pop Channel" to the "BanYa Channel", even though it was made by F2 System, who worked with Andamiro to make Extra. Holiday, the other F2 song, has only showed up on Extra, The Prex and The Prex 2.
