Song Production Information
An exciting new movement is currently happening in London, it's called 2STEP (UK Garage).
It's a hybrid of genres including HOUSE, DRUM'N'BASS, REGGAE, and TECHNO.
Please play the game if you're interested, as it's difficult to explain with words.
Perhaps it's unique that a 2STEP song is included in DX, since this track resembles a 4-beat breakbeat house song.
CS Information Data
DDRMAX -DanceDanceRevolution- / DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME CS (North America)
"I'M FOR REAL" by SLAKE. This song is based on "2-Step," a relatively new dance music genre that combines R&B/soul with drum'n'bass-styled breaks.
Video Production Information
If you visit the house section of a store selling imported CDs, there are 2 (TWO) STEP songs like this everywhere.
It's similar to when DRUM'N'BASS became popular, and I noticed that this 2STEP rhythm was incorporated in many J-POP songs.
I'm certain this genre will be prevalent in the future, but I hope "I'M FOR REAL" will be the first 2STEP rhythm you enjoy listening to... It'll be very nice if the song also piques your curiosity in the genre.
I intended for the song's image to be modern and stylish in the movie, and wanted to showcase the "newness" of the rhythm called 2STEP. I designed a basic still-frame as if a CD jacket of this song was created, unlike my previous production strategies.
Well, to divert from SLAKE's previous hard-styled image tracks, I emphasized on "softness" by moving the female character to synchronize with the song's opening lyrics.
I really wanted to make a live-action video, but various circumstances led to a CG character being used as usual...
