Music Comment

A dance track filled with a little nostalgic disco classic atmosphere!

Song Production Information



I made this song for MAMBO A GO GO with the theme being "dazzling '70s disco!"
I'm very happy that everyone has the chance to replay it in beatmania.
The song will make you want to puff out your chest, throw your head back, and raise your hands up high with a pose that says "Fever!"
All while wearing platform shoes, bellbottom pants, a sequin jacket, massive sunglasses, and an afro on your head.
Everyone, please play it and have fun!



I heard the sound director TOMOSUKE say "we cannot miss the dazzling '70s disco, right?", so I created this song. It was unexpectedly addictive, and I quickly made it. The vocalist MANNY also created a perfect, atmospheric feeling to it. I later added a backing chorus to make it even more atmospheric.

Hello everyone. Dance the night away incorporates as much of '70s disco music taste as possible, and I aimed to create this song to be "extremely disco!". While I composed it, a mirror ball was completely spinning round and round in my mind, and I completely entered that world. By the way, the occasionally appearing chorus in the middle of this song is by a virtual chorus group, which I created by fully editing waveforms, due to the limited budget & approaching deadline. But, it was fine when I completed it. With a fever fever feeling, doesn't it feel good?! It seems so.
I sincerely hope that everyone enjoys playing this song. Yay!

This unique and wow~ atmosphere is mysterious. It feels groovy~ to comfortably ride the rhythms. Was it similar to the rhythm of your heart?
But, was this a fast song back then? (The songs from my grandfather's era were calmer.) The current poppers have fast processing speeds with their high-end CPUs. Where will humans probably go? I tried to quickly think about such things.
Let's all occasionally lower the HI-SPEED without looking at the notecharts, and groove to the 4-beat rhythms by ourselves.


This tempo! Even though I intended to accurately play it, my GOOD GOOD score doesn't improve at all. Since I played this song many times for some reason, I wish I could clear it a bit more... boo-hoo.
As shio said, I wonder if I should lower the HI-SPEED and do special training. Although all the team appears to use HI-SPEED 3 for BPM200 songs, I can't see the crammed pop-kun unless it's 4....


It's bitter~, it's extremely bitter!
How bitter is it?
It's really bitter~

... But! That's right


I'm sure this song is, hmm.. it appeared in beatmania Final.
It's so nostalgic, that whenever I forget something, it makes me want to listen to it, guhehe.
That's why I should GOGO to a DISCO.


Senoo, I was poor back when I first joined this company, but he even lent me money and assisted me.
I'm happy that Senoo's song will be included here, and I'm also happy another of his songs was rescued.


Although it's said that a Fever Warrior protects the peace of a disco, before the hero could do anything, this song has a lot of fever, and was therefore appropriate to open the event.
From such a very high quality disco style, this guilty song gives me the faint expectation "Wow! What kind of fever will successively happen in the future?". Whether or not it subsequently answers those expectations through fever.
Come to think of it, during the pop'n 8 mambo festival, this song was nominated as a candidate until the end,and I'm filled with emotion that this song is finally able to be included after 4 years, due to the timing of being blocked by several walls of songs.
Although it's difficult to realize, I'd like Senoo to create a bitter and cool pop'n song someday.
