Song Production Information
DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX Official Website
The song is a combination of Afro music, jungle & drum'n'bass, and was designed to create an interesting chart arrangement that could be easily linked to the rhythmic traps. Actually, this song was originally created to be D.D.R.'s next PARANOiA.
DanceDanceRevolution 3rdMIX Original Soundtrack
This song was created with Africa as its concept.
The sound is created so that if you listen, you can see the eminent image of a vast landscape of the savanna.
Consequently, I think this song is filled with originality.
