Oh oh...listen to energy                                                    Come on

                                           Everybody in the room start a revolution
                                                        Musical key to an evolution
                                              Mixing it right can you feel the vibe
                                                  C'mon y'all have a real good time

                                              Get in touch with the rhythm and beat
                                                         Over powered by the energy
                                         Kickin it through,what a rush,what a blast
                                             Under your command,keep it comin' fast


Lift me up,we'll have a real good time
So good,under the disco lights
The cure,musical remedy
So pure,lost in this energy

Osaka...Kansai                                             Yeah,yeah.......Yeah,yeah
Everybody,it's party time                                  Everybody now....Ugh,ugh!

                                                           Party,party,dance masters
                                               In the groove,it's the beat I'm after
                                                     12:45 and we're doin' just fine
                                                    Hit me once and you blow my mind

                                                         Burning up.....on the floor
                                             Hands in the air,screaming out for more
                                                            Dance,dance to the sound
                                                   Blasting out from the underground

Party,party on now,
keep lifting me out,just shout                             Ugh,ugh,c'mon.....take it
                                                                       Ugh,ugh,c'mon

Lift me up,we'll have a real good time
So good,under the disco lights
The cure,musical remedy
So pure,lost in this energy

So good,setting the room alight
Your touch is making me come alive
Let's go,moving up to the beat
I know that we'll find the energy

The energy,the energy,just feel the beat

Song Production Information

NAOKI

This song is the OP for DanceEvolution, the next generation rhythm dance game released for the XBOX360/KINECT in late 2010.
I felt that this song would be great for IIDX 18.

In fact, there is a bit of a difference between the IIDX version and the game version of this song.
If you have the chance to listen to both versions, try to listen to the differences.

I was born in Osaka, so when L.E.D. assigned the music for the production of the game, he felt that I was best suited to make a dance song from that region (laughs).

I have many memories of Kansai, but I had to juggle many different ideas of how to represent this city in a song.
I decided to make a fierce techno-infused Speed Rave (my term) song.

The result is DM STAR ~関西 energy style~.

Video Production Information

VJ GYO

IIDX fans! The long awaited super-SPEED RAVE song from NAOKI has finally arrived!

Under the dark sky of night, do you ever feel the waves of melancholy around you?
Even if I could stop them, I still couldn't completely shake them off. All I can do is run as far as I can.
I want to go to where the highway disappears into the distance, leaving everything behind.

"A sentimental speed song"...a song that puts me into that certain state of mind.
(※ At least that was my impression of it.)

In case you are not familiar with the characters...besides the three familiar IIDX car gals, these two are the best girl racing duo in Kansai.
Emiru Motegi is from a mixed blood line, with her red hair coming from her mother's side and her penchant for racing from her father, a famous rally racer (Emiru Motegi/19/Kobe, Japan)
Aki Suzuka is the beloved daughter of the president of a major manufacturing company, and a mechanical genius in her own right (Aki Suzuka/19/Osaka, Japan).
....I loved making this movie.

(Aside)

Although I haven't worked on a movie with these characters by themselves before, I didn't really have a problem making this movie once I began.
Also, if you look at Aki's pose, it looks like she is finishing eating a piece of takoyaki.
