Song Production Information
This is J-HAPPY HARDCORE number with NAOKI's recent sound in full force.
It's been a long time since I burst into high tension, and it has recently become one of my favorite songs.
Following BRE∀K DOWN!, BeForU member Riyu Kosaka broke out.
Her beautiful and punchy vocals have a good chemistry with the straight groovy beat numbers, and she poured her entire soul into LOVE・SHINE.
I really care about current trends, since we're transitioning into an era of convenience.
If you think my music is stoic, it's because I'm obsessed with commercial POP. This is simply because POP is my "favorite" genre.
That's what I thought about this song, which I named its genre J-HAPPY HARDCORE, and want to advance towards an unprecedented genre in J-POP.
DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME Original Soundtrack
DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME Weekly Journal
Making CANDY♥ finer, it contains MAX cuteness and is a straight groovy HAPPY HARDCORE number with an energetic ROCK taste.
This is a song that makes you feel excited and energized, enjoying the sunshine with your body, without thinking about anything.
PURE and HAPPY feelings... Have you recently forgotten when you became an adult??
Video Production Information
This song is familiar(?) to those who extremely heard it playing from the DDR cabinet.
The first image I heard when I received the data was that it was a major straight song.
As expected of the NAOKI SOUND! Whenever a song contains singing, my consciousness tends to be biased towards it, but there has never been a song which raises the tension like this song. This is a first-class song, from the chosen sounds to the song development. All of them suit my tastes. As expected of the NAOKI SOUND! Please let me create this video~. And I repeatedly requested for it.
I decided relatively early to try creating a POP atmosphere. I didn't use any live-action or 3DCG, it's all 2D animation....
That was the concept behind this video. I intended to create the animations without breaking the atmosphere of Riyu's cute and clear voice. I'd be happy if you can watch it and feel it as the IIDX version of "Minna no Uta".
Due to the difficult schedule of creating other videos, there were times when I thought about using live-action footage while creating it, but I eventually completed it with 2D only. It's been a long time since I created this movie, and I forgot how I felt back then, but it took a very long time.... I had a very nice experience this time. ucchie also created nice notecharts for this song, and playing them is the best. Well, they're too difficult for me to the point that I didn't have time to watch the movie (laughs).
* By the way, no one should beat the number of times I listened to this song. Ever since I received the song, I endlessly listened to it every day from beginning to end of work during the production of 9th. After counting, that's a lot of times....
I enjoy creating new things. Wow~ you did it. When I hear people say this, you know it was worth.
If I create another movie next time, I'll fly further~. What is this?
This song was very popular during the location test. I tried to make the background appear flashy. Please be careful not to be overwhelmed by the shine of the heart object in the center!
Ah, I want to go to the southern islands...
