Hideki Fujisawa, better known by the stage name DANCE☆MAN, started his career in 1998, and has since established a rather lengthy and successful following centered around his re-arranging of 70's and 80's American disco, funk, and boogie songs and replacing the lyrics with often humorous Japanese lyrics. He also makes his own original songs, such as those featured in beatmania IIDX. He began his career when he signed with the Japanese music label avex and started releasing singles and albums, but in 1999, he began arranging and re-arranging music written by popular Japanese composers, beginning with the single LOVEマシーン by female group Morning Musume., which was extremely popular and got DANCE☆MAN's name known in this business. In 2001, Fujisawa composed the song "Yatta!" (performed by fictional boy band GREEN LEAVES) as part of a sketch on the comedy series 笑う犬の冒険 ("Silly Go Lucky"). The song's music video became a large global internet meme at the time, which also spawned a popular Flash video parody.
DANCE☆MAN is very secretive about his identity to the public. He is never seen without wearing a large afro hairstyle wig and sideburns with large sunglasses and does not release his personal info on websites or in CDs. He performs and records with a band who he aptly names "THE BANDMAN," which consists of 8 musicians and backup vocalists. He formed a group of 4 girls to do the lead singing in his song We are Disっ娘よっつ打ち命 from HAPPY SKY, who he names "Disっ娘" (diskko), featuring O.L. and ANNIE from THE BANDMAN and Yoma Komatsu and Risa Sotohana from BeForU.
