Song Production Information


This track is overflowing with rock spirit.
I've actually been friends with TaQ since middle school, but this track's roots seem to be in the rock sound he dearly loved at that time.
When TaQ saw the movie exclusively made for this track, he said "I want to be in it too".
Will he make his first movie appearance for his next song?

Video Production Information


One technique used in BIG BEAT music videos is to noisily edit a drama with no direct relation with its song title, and make it fit with the song.
I created an original drama about a special forces team (SWAT team) vs. a terrorist group, and this choice seems to be well received, even TaQ was pleased.
Although the terrorists' clothing and props were items I gathered from my rather untidy house, the SWAT team's clothing were actually based on the equipment of certain police as much as possible (that said, there are a few things that will confuse those familiar with it... that's none of my business... please forgive me...).
During the filming day, as the production deadline was approaching, only one person dressed as a SWAT member, while the other team members wore casual clothes when participating in a meeting for organizing an EXPERT COURSE.
It's a funny story, but that meeting was never ending, and I honestly cried when I continued to silently act and film alone until it became dark...
However, I'm happy to hear that the movie was generally well received, unlike GAMBOL's movie from the first IIDX game, which had mixed reviews.

Please note that this is the first appearance of director KAGE (the man with short hair, black coat, and teardrop shaped sunglasses, who looks really scary) in a IIDX movie!!!
