Trivia

This song has different backgrounds, banners, jackets, or other related images. For more information, please see this page.
  • 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.
  • According to GOLI's comments in the Q&A corner of the beatmania IIDX 4th style official website, the character in Holic's video resembled a certain DJ who performed in the club he used to attend.
  • Holic is a hidden revival in DDRMAX2 -DanceDanceRevolution 7thMIX-. It can be unlocked by reaching level 13, or using an operator code to unlock it via 3rd PASS.
  • Holic received a Single BEGINNER chart in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME.
    • Via a glitch, it even received a Single CHALLENGE chart, though it's just a copy of its Single HEAVY chart.
  • Holic is one of the first beatmania IIDX songs to have a Level 11 chart on Single retroactively, as the 1-12 rating scale wouldn't be introduced until beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY. (The other one is R5, also debuting in the same game.)
    • Holic is also tied with era (nostalmix) for the first song with a Double chart rated Level 12.
  • Holic's overlays were removed from the beatmania IIDX arcade games as of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro due to technical issues.
  • Holic is unlockable in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS (2020) from June 7th, 2023 after purchasing its charts with BITs.

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

dj TAKA

This is TaQ's Holic, a.k.a "HARD TEC", his latest techno song.
By the way, I received questions asking "how do you pronounce TaQ?", so the correct answer is "Taku".
Q is pronounced "ku" in German, right? TaQ spent his childhood years in Germany, and it seems it's his favorite nickname since then.
Many people also felt that TaQ's songs, including Holic, have a certain German atmosphere, so perhaps it's from that background.

Video Production Information

VJ GYO

Both dj TAKA's "LEADING CYBER" and TaQ's "Holic" perfectly express the worldview of 3rd style's catchphrase, "CYBER beat NATION", in the most straightforward way.
If anything, they're songs with dark tones and filled with power, like being consumed by intense force, without sinking or stagnating.
