Song Connections / Remixes
- Kecak marks John Robinson's debut in BEMANI.
- Kecak is a form of Balinese dance and music drama that developed in the 1930s in Bali, Indonesia.
- Kecak received a brand-new Double ANOTHER chart in beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD. This chart also appeared in beatmania IIDX 11 IIDX RED CS.
- Kecak's video is the first to feature the digital stick man, which would later appear in all other videos by kjk@tksd (LESSON 5, DUE TOMORROW, and Come On).
Song Production Information
The idea of Kecak came from the traditional tribal dance performed by the Balinese in Indonesia.
It actually translates to "trance dance" so it seemed somehow appropriate. The tribesmen work themselves up into a frenzy, all the while chanting the "chak chak chak" sounds that you can hear in Kecak.
I was extremely happy and relieved after I performed this song with 50 tribesmen in Bali.....
I wonder what would have happened to me if they had not liked it!!!!!!!!!
