Lyrics

Let's get it on don't stop us now
When we step on the scene
we came to get down
Check the moves you know they can't be dissed
Ain't 2 many that can flow like this
We humming, coming at ya!
And the rhythm gonna get ya!
Need I, should I say no more
Tell me what the deal?
Yo check my flow!!!

*Jump Jump Jump D.D.R.
Yo Everybody feel the beat with D.D.R.
Jam Jam Jam D.D.R.
Everybody Dance let's get down

Could it be that you wannna be more like me
No shame, I bring pain for the year 2 G's.
Now we gonna turn this party out
Put your hands in the air move 'em all around
Can you feel the best down in your soul
Don't fight the feeling just let it go
4, 3, 2, 1 let's count it down
Wanna see you move we you hear that sound

*Repeat
B4U.....

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

NAOKI

This song is an upper number from D.D.R.4th MIX, completely filled with NAOKI's sound, and the driving feeling of AARON G's MC, while the sharp synth leads and hit sounds combine with the beat like an addictive sensation, further enhancing its rave feeling.
It's quite challenging in the game with the key placement in the first-half, and the intermittent scratching in the second half. By all means, I'd like you to create your own upper groove!!

B4U is a new song which I diligently created as an attempt to do what I couldn't do during the production of "BRILLIANT 2U", which was first included in D.D.R.2nd MIX, by using the current technology and technological capabilities to enhance it in every respect.
To every player, by all means, please JUMP, JUMP, JUMP, DDR~~!! Please enjoy this B4U and play alongside the MC until dawn!

Dance Maniax

This number continues from "BRILLIANT 2U", which received overwhelming support throughout the D.D.R. series. It's included in D.D.R. 4thMIX, so perhaps many players have already heard it. The MC's energetic rap from the very beginning and the high-speed synths are the golden combination of Eurobeat. The gorgeous and danceable result seems to capture the excitement of the dance floor. If you want to vigorously dance without thinking, please choose this number!

Video Production Information

VJ GYO

The characteristic intro announces the start of "something" with a continuous high tension from "that song"!
When substream/CLUB VERSION 2 were being produced at that time, all the team members participated in intense Battle play (during difficulty review/bug checks/trial playthrough), and it was well received in the market, who showed visible excitement and stood out.

However, I think you can recognize the true charm of B4U if you listen closely, which is a super power-up from "that song", which is "Brilliant 2U".
It's full of speed and power which seems categorically more associated with "running" than "dancing", and defies the definition of a new flow of Euro high tension. The song is sublimated into a dimension, which reproduces the uplifting and euphoric feelings of a fighting spirit similar to a "battle"!

The route of NAOKI's upper Euro "car-themed" movie was discussed in a conversation with dj TAKA to be "quite on point". The well-known Mika Tsukuba appears as a rival in the movie!? (See the Q&A section for details). With that scenario in mind, I created an original movie about car battles.
The effect of having two characters appear was demonstrated in the chorus although it wasn't part of the story, which I think ended up becoming quite good.

Speaking of a battle between girls, dj TAKA and KANI witnessed a high score attack battle between two girls at an arcade when the production of IIDX 4th concluded, and I remember them filled with emotion and excitement as they said that "IIDX has entered a new phase~!".
