Groovin' with some energy Takin' it beyond the stars Everything here is so clear Gotta move beyond no fear In life you know we make mistakes Don't look back learn from the past Even with snakes in the grass You'll know when it's time to run ready for the future appreciate the present Nothing's gonna hurt ya Life is just a lesson Go beyond yeah really far 1 2 3 and four open up a brand new door Inner lion starts to roar aaaaha!! it's time for more you know it's time for action Yes it's time for more Action and reaction Bam! let it blow up Always ready for action Hey time to wake up wake up it's time to get up!! Shooting straight like a Harpoon Pouring down like the monsoon Feel the heat rise like lava No time for all the drama After all the rain Then the sun will shine Even with the pain The heart is getting stronger The rhythm's gonna get ya You know it's gonna get ya Rhythm's gonna get ya you know it's gonna get ya!!

Song Production Information
Actually, I started making this song as "26th style", but due to various circumstances, it was postponed to 27th. With that in mind, I have the impression that it was a long time ago when I created this song, and that there are a lot of episodes that I could write about, but I feel like I've forgotten them.
For the 20th anniversary of IIDX, I think it was about remaking early songs, but the so-called anthems such as ".59", "Colors", and "ABSOLUTE" have been remade by various people, so I decided to start with an unexpected song, "Second Style".
The original song is already quite up-tempo for hip-hop, but I raised the BPM further and polished the track to make it groovier and more trap-like, but I made the best use of the original song's phrases and tones, and most of the scratch sounds used here are just the sampled sounds that were used back then.
Some of my friends appeared in the movie, but the person who participated in the rap during the recording was a completely different person. B-BANDJ is a great rapper, and a former MC of MONDO GROSSO who participated in beatmania CORE REMIX, so you can't go wrong.
