Song Production Information

Osamu Kubota

There was once a man. He disliked the dance music playing throughout the city, and with a group, founded the "irregular time signature temple" in Ogikubo, Tokyo​, in an effort to popularize the strange time signature, which led to the complicated and mysterious "death of the 4-beat time signature".
I've revived this after 20 years have passed. I'm truly grateful to receive the opportunity to create this kind of song. I'd like to give you a British scent that I recreated just from my efforts performing it, which is said to go beyond analog to physical, back when PCs didn't exist as a student.

"mind the gap" - that's the secret code. A space-time distortion created by magical 16th notes. The "irregular prime numbered time signature" spiral, which is even more advanced than music with odd time signatures, is like a magnificent cathedral built without using a single nail. Won't you suddenly be transported to an island country 6,000 miles away?

Video Production Information


Nice to meet you. I'm Takatan.
I'm currently a designer on the Gitadora team who's bothering everyone there.
Why am I here...?

That's right, I created a movie for "mind the gap". I did it~~

I was given the song and told to make however I liked~, so I made it however I liked (laughs).
"First, the atmosphere is majestic and ominous... I wonder if there's an old castle illuminated by the moonlight....
Oh, the rhythms are somewhat lively... let's make a running skeleton~.
... By the way, why is it running? That's right, it's looking for a toilet.
... It ended up having a somewhat comical touch to it, well, let's add a punchline~"
I made it with a quite irresponsible groove, which feels like this... tehehe.

Nevertheless, the IIDX series has high quality movies every time, so I wonder if it's somewhat OK for me to disrupt them...
When I compare my movies to those created by others...
Kya~~~ how embarrassing~~~ don't look at it~. Oh, but you saw it after all~~~
Even so, I tried my best.
