Song Production Information



CLOUDY MUSIC from IIDX makes its way over to THE FINAL.
It's a musical drum'n bass track where a moog-esque synthesizer ties together with rushing breakbeats and a jazz-flavored electric piano.

beatmania IIDX


A handsome old man's drum'n bass with full-throttled juice, and a slightly too fast BPM that feels just right.
Moog-like synth sounds intertwined with jazzy Rhodes riffs feels nice.
The reason for having an old man with a sexy voice is a secret.

Video Production Information


Downtown, lined with an old apartment with stairs installed on the outer wall... a narrow alleyway covered a neverending shadow... suddenly a black cat passes through there...
This is life of the inner city, that always seems to be blocked from the light.

In such a city, people have active, cool, and sometimes thrilling and speedy lives.
Therefore, it conveys a freshly squeezed, cultivated real groove!
