Song Production Information
I was originally thinking about including this song for DDR, but during production, I thought about never including PARANOIA from DDR3rd onwards, so this song was included in SOLO instead. Since it was named EVOLUTION, the overall arrangement was significantly enhanced, the trap part is strengthened, and the BPM also increased to 200, so PARANOIA didn't lose its meaning. Still, PARANOIA EVOLUTION has 2TYPE versions, with the TYPE2 version being included in this game.
CS Information Data
"PARANOIA EVOLUTION" by 200 is a supercharged remix of the original song. The "PARANOiA" series is considered to be one of "the" songs that conveys the essence of Dance Dance Revolution, and this remix is by far the hardest and most aggressive version to date. You can check out the original version and a different remix of "PARANOiA" in Dance Dance Revolution KONAMIX.
