Song Production Information
sampling masters MEGA
Hello, I'm Rottelda-san. Excuse me. I haven't been listening to very much rotterdam techno recently. It doesn't sell well. In the old days I'd listen to the rotterdam that played in a small club I knew. All of a sudden everyone would get up and jump up and down, almost dive-bombing each other ... you couldn't call it dancing. It's here that my familiarity with rotterdam techno began to deepen. You've just got to get crazier.
Manners are good these days. I'll have to study even more! I've got my eyes set on Amsterdam ... but you know, trance is also popular in Holland ... oh ho ho.
Video Production Information
"I don't need any others, just let me do this song!" One of the other designers said as soon as they heard this song.
But, you know ... I really wanted to do it.
When I heard this song, it just had such a huge impact on me; I liked it a lot. Different visuals keep rising to the surface and disappearing. At the beginning there's a bunch of machine parts drawn in 2D. But as soon as you start to think, what's going on?, we come to a warm August day in the park.
As soon as I said, "it'd be neat to film the design team for once", it was too late. Everyone covered for me for SECOND STYLE, but this time ... Oh, it was so hot outside in the afternoon sunlight.
Oh well. I wanted to spin around.
This is the sort of thing I remembered after we finished ... oh well.
Please listen to what all the various performers were shouting during the filming.
K (1): I bet I'd look great with an afro!
K (2): If you spin it enough, it won't look like it's spinning.
S: Hey, don't dance without me!
E: Isn't this a great pose, G-kun?
H: I shall not lose. I said, I'm not gonna lose.
U: So why don't you draw on a moustache then?
Passerby (child A): "Hey mom, is that woman dancing?"
Passerby (mother of child A): "Shh! Don't stare!"
