Song Connections / Remixes

  • ICARUS bears a striking resemblance to LIA's Light In The Air ~“oh my god!!”FORCE mix~, also produced by Kosuke Saito.
  • A sequel to ICARUS, titled D, appears in beatmania IIDX 17 SIRIUS.
  • An extended version of ICARUS, titled Icarus(Extended), can be found on kors k's eighth album, S2TB Files4:Eagle.
    • A remix of ICARUS by Akira Complex, titled Icarus(Akira Complex Remix), also appears on the same album.


  • ICARUS is one of four songs that are part of the MILITARY SPLASH #02 EXTRA STAGE system, with this song being Battlefield Sky.
    • The video's enemy is ICAROS, the depiction of Eagle, with 4300 HP.
      • When you miss a note, the boss will fly towards the screen, striking it.
    • Like beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD's CARDINAL GATE and beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD's VIP ROOM EXTRA STAGE songs, all MILITARY SPLASH #02 songs have different color skins. ICARUS has a blue and white skin.
  • In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of Daedalus, who, in trying to escape from King Minos, flew too high to the sun, and died when his wings made of wax melted.
  • The samples at the beginning and before the slowdown of ICARUS are taken from Bowl-mani Fest '07 at Tokyo Game Action, in which kors k was one of the guest DJ's. The lines are the following:
Bitchin' and whinin' and moanin' later
Without further ado, the lights are gonna be dim, so...
So just make sure you know where your valuables are and not
Ok, without further ado, we're gonna give the man of honor, the guest of honor here, and I hope you bought Wii tickets

So after that...
Twin sent me like a bunch of messages about him wanting to perform and do para and do a music session before the event
...and I haven't seen him yet. And where the hell is Chef?
  • According to TJ Langdon's comments on this video, these samples were recorded by Tokyo Game Action's Anthony, right before kors k's performance.
  • The line "Twin sent me like a bunch of messages about him wanting to perform and do para and do a music session before the event" refers to TJ Langdon and his friends Twin, Amanda, and DM Ashura performing a ParaPara dance before kors k's stage begun.

Song Production Information


The loss of the kraken brought the anger of the king, which in turn led to his imprisonment. Although he made wings with wax and feathers, flying through the sky and succeeding in escaping, Icarus wished to fly higher. For a while, he was able to fly where he wanted. However, the wings, which were made of wax, dissolved with the heat of the sun, and he fell and died.

I produced a song characteristic with the story, with BPM changes, a cyber sound, and a radio voiceover reminiscent of fighter pilots in this song production. Honestly, I feel that this is a very difficult song to pass...

Video Production Information


Because I have trouble drawing mechanical things, I had difficulty starting this project. However, I decided to make an image that was strong, yet delicate. The main body of Icarus, which pulls you in with the tune, was the last thing that I produced.

The feathers scattering, and the way they fell... I was thinking how such a light looking aircraft could fly.
