Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

TAKA

When NAOKI asked me, "why not do a song with a revolutionary theme together?", I was in a rather mixed state of mind, being half happy and anxious about whether this could be achieved.
This was because the game was near the end of production and there was still so much work to be done, so I was in a state where I couldn't say I would make another song.
As seen from the song title translated as "Revolution", the song was originally made as the last boss song in DDR, but I persuaded others to include it in IIDX as the hidden centerpiece song of both games, with "Kakumei" finished after unreasonable schedule changes.
For the production, I received NAOKI's piano performance and basic track, then I repeatedly created the orchestra arrangements and layered the rhythm track, becoming a smart process without wasting time.

The artist name became "dj TAKA with NAOKI", but this song was made possible by the last-minute schedule coordination and teamwork of everyone involved, including ucchie, who wrote the charts, Jiishima, who was in charge of the DDR charts, and the directors and crews of both games.

NAOKI

As someone who likes Chopin, I had hoped to try a situation like this sometime, so thanks to dj TAKA's cool talent and huge help, this arrangement of "Kakumei" was completed, making full use of present day technology.

Regarding "Kakumei" personally, it's a revolution in DDR, and it has become a meaningful song within the series.
