Song Production Information


Quadra with DJ FX.
For old beatmania fans, to see this would bring tears to their eyes, would it not?
To hear this track, even more tears would occur, don't you think?
The fusion of Quadra's lovely ambient and DJ FX's hard beat, this is surely a must-listen!

Video Production Information


This is the first movie by VJ YUZ from the IIDX team with special participation of VJ YUZ, who supervised the overall visuals of 3rd style (while working as the main designer in a different team, he gave me advice, taught me techniques, and helped me with various things, including GOLI)!

When you try to grasp a piece of music as a flow, the individual sounds that make up the piece slip through the cracks of your consciousness and are difficult to grasp.
The movie, created by VJ YUZ, shows not only the dynamism of the song as a whole, but also the Usually, it's up to this level. For example, mine...), each sound is also scooped up with precision and turned into visual information.
The result is a very high level movie that has the effect of amplifying and extending the feeling you get from the music many times over.
I remember being so shocked by this movie, which was delivered to me near the end of production, that I kept watching it over and over until GOLI came home from the convenience store in the middle of the night and called out to me.
