Song Production Information
This is a song by the "mysterious Indian", DR.BOMBAY. The strong synth riffs at the beginning and the amusing sound effects in the middle make this a really good song for beatmania, so we were able to license it for use in the game. It's a little hard, but good things come in the dawn after the clear of a song ...
ps: I meant that it's good as an EXTRA STAGE, but that may have been a little misleading. Sorry to all of you who thought there was some other meaning to that line.
Video Production Information
I think there are a lot of people who are struck with the impact, power, divergence, and plain fun in this movie. DR.BOMBAY becomes a hunter and chases after a ferocious tiger (tiger person?) in this video, but since we had to cut it down to a game sized version, we weren't sure how it would come across. I hope you'll look for the full video on the music video channels. Incidentally, if you listen closely to the lyrics, you'll see how they relate to the video (it makes it even more fun!).
