Song Connections / Remixes

  • A remix of BLOCKS by SHU OKUYAMA (from S2TB), titled BLOCKS (SHU OKUYAMA Remix), can be found in the V-RARE SOUND TRACK 14 CD.


  • Typos made for BLOCKS can be considered an inside joke.
  • BLOCKS was first playable as the first stage of 3-dan on beatmania IIDX 11 IIDX RED. This only allowed play of the 7KEYS chart.
    • On December 22nd, 2004, it was unlocked for everyone to play.
  • BLOCKS' Single ANOTHER chart is the first Level 12 chart to be bumped down a Level with a new series (Level 12 in beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY, Level 11 in beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD).
  • BLOCKS' overlays were removed from the beatmania IIDX arcade games as of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro due to technical issues.
  • BLOCKS is unlockable in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS from September 4th, 2019, after purchasing its charts with BITs.

Song Production Information


It's been a while since I created a trance song with a sequel-like atmosphere to REFERENCE.
Does it feel quiet compared to my recent epic-like songs?
I'm anti against various things becoming excessively radicalized. (That's my excuse)
Anyways, I can't help but cry like a pure teenager.
If you're fascinated by the lovely ending, you're a narcissist.

Video Production Information


Enclosed with blocks. Many things are stuffed, condensed, and form a shape.
This is my first animation.
Instead of having a vision which fit this song, I created this video by gathering colors which came to my mind.
Conversely, I had a vision when I heard the song, which it solidified as an inorganic object and consisted of puzzle-like parts.

It's sharp, cool, and beautiful, but... somehow adorable.
Even when I always listen to this song, I never get tired of it, maybe because it has many kinds of complicated aspects.
