Song Connections / Remixes
- Holic is part of TaQ's "-ic" series of songs.
- A mix of Holic with stoic appears on TaQ's bounce connected album.
- Holic runs in three different time signatures on each part: 7/8 from the beginning, 7/4 during the middle, and 4/4 near the end.
- Holic received a Single BEGINNER chart in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME.
- Holic is one of the first beatmania IIDX songs to have a Level 11 chart in Single Play mode (the other one is R5, also debuting in the same game).
- Holic's overlays were removed from the beatmania IIDX arcade games as of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro due to technical issues.
Song Production Information
Here is TaQ's latest production, the hard techno song Holic. By the way, a lot of people have been asking, "How do you pronounce TaQ?" The correct answer is "Taku". In German, Q is pronounced like "ku". TaQ spent his childhood years in Germany, and it looks like "TaQ" is a favorite nickname he picked up there. I think there are a lot of people who think TaQ's works have a certain German techno feel to them, including Holic; this may be why.
CS Information Data
You have unlocked the song "Holic" by TaQ. If you like the words "dark", "fast", and "hard techno", then you should also add the word "Holic" to your list.
Video Production Information
The catch copy for 3rd style is "CYBERbeatNATION"; it seems the songs that express this particular world view the best are probably dj TAKA's LEADING CYBER and this song, "Holic" from TaQ. If I had to say why, it's because they're songs that give you a very dark feeling with faltering or becoming depressing; they're both song that are overflowing with a violent energy that seems to suck you in.
