Song Production Information
The concept for this song was to represent the history of BEMANI in music as a type of cry. That is what led me to make B4U (BEMANI FOR YOU MIX).
When I first heard the original song, how did I feel? Probably the same as you did too when you first heard the song.
After some soul searching to make a remix, I woke up feeling like I was stuck.
Then I was inspired by thinking about a possible "back side" of the original song. "High Tension" woke me up from my funk and gave me a category in which to make this song.
Adding a sudden sense of max tension to this song was a great addition to this song, by adding even more tension, it simulated shifting to higher gears in a car.
This of course when remixing another "side of speed", one is not aware of the other songs.
I liked how this turned out.
