Music Comment

This is a hybrid drum'n'bass song with an oriental feel!

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

Nekomata Master

This song was included in jubeat last year.
I spent quite some time creating the kicks and synth bass.

Actually, I was trying to reduce the synth bass when more kicks came in, but the more I do these kinds of things, the more paralyzed I become, right?
I clearly remember when I left it alone one night and calmly listened to it, I felt like "what's this", and rushing back to it.

A long version for it is included in my album "Sayonara sekai", so by all means, please listen to it if you're interested~.



Video Production Information


I consciously made this video metallic & cyber.
I hope it fits this game's concept.
I'd be happy if you like it.

Hello, my name is Chai.
When I heard Far east nightbird, I suddenly had the image of "dancing birds shining in the night sky" in my mind. (I'm lying, that image came from the title).
The more I listen to this song, the cooler it becomes. It's my favorite song among those in jubeat knit.
Even though the sound rages with amazing power, it's sharp, has a tense feeling, so I can tell that Nekomata enjoyed making it, and I really love it.
Each sound is beautiful! I listen to it every day while commuting to work.
The light which appears in the jacket image, was taken by spinning a penlight in a dark warehouse (with help from the programmer Sakurabi), using a long exposure process.
By all means, I'd love to make a jacket for Nekomata's next song.
