Song Production Information


I really wanted to create a sequel to my previous song, so I immediately worked on it.
The image feels like riding in a hitchhiked car while passing through various sceneries.
I hope everyone imagines what kinds of places they might be.
I'm sincerely thankful to dj TAKA for allowing me to create this track.

Video Production Information


good-cool is considered to be the most versatile artist among those participating in the IIDX series, who has revived various forms of dance music in new ways, following the history of disco music.
However, one of the songs which marked his first appearance in 2nd style was a quick, cheerful, and happy tune, whose beat was bursting with an extremely glittering melody, which had never been seen in the beatmania sound until then.
That song is Hitch Hiker.
2nd style was a version which particularly contained high-quality house numbers throughout the IIDX series, and Hitch Hiker was labeled WARP HOUSE, a cutting-edge sound back then, so I was very excited that I was involved in its brilliant revival... so it's not just a memory, it returned! That song!
It's titled Hitch Hiker2.
This is probably the first time throughout the history of the beatmania series that a song is treated as a sequel and titled "2", just like movies.

The sound and movie starts with an intro which seems condensed from Hitch Hiker.
And then... let's just say it looks like hitching in a more amazing car this time (the scenery reflected outside the window of the car has considerably changed, right?).

By all means, please choose Hitch Hiker in the stage before you play Hitch Hiker2, and enjoy the long drive (but you need to clear it first... You can play it in LIGHT7 for SAFTY DRIVING. Definitely).
