Song Production Information


RED=TAIYO... it may be a somewhat predictable approach, but this is the first song I created for this game, and as a result of being strongly aware that a car chase scene relates to the word RED, this is a full-fledged song which fully shows off the NAOKI sound. (laughs)
"T・A・I・Y・O" is the memorable debut song of the vocalist Kanako Hoshino, who brilliantly passed the BEMANI Artist Audition 2004, and wrote the lyrics.
She's one of the promising female artists whom I have high expectations for in the future, so please pay attention to her entertainment activities.

Kanako Hoshino

"TAIYO" is Kanako Hoshino's debut song, so I have very deep feelings for it.
When I first heard it, I was anxious about whether I could sing this somewhat cool song with my own flavor, but I was able to sing it strong, cool, and confidently, worthy of the title "TAIYO".
Those who heard this song know that it feels speedy and fast, so I consciously thought about this when I wrote the lyrics.
I wrote sentences which seem to fit this song, and create a story.
I'm someone who's fascinated by people who shine like the sun, and can't stop their passionate feelings, so I wrote the lyrics with such thoughts.
I thought of the title afterwards, and I coincidentally came up with the name of the sky series "TAIYO", which connects with my name Hoshino, but it's a great fit.
Everyone please burn "TAIYO" with your many passionate feelings. I'm waiting for everyone's passion to reach me★

Video Production Information


"CAN'T STOP FALLIN' IN LOVE" gave birth to "car-themed" IIDX movies, and "B4U" continued that standard series since then.
They're both NAOKI songs, and we've worked together on several songs since then, but when I was in charge of taking "car-themed" movies one step further with this concept, while I was vaguely thinking of ideas, I thought NAOKI was the only person who could create the core song as expected.
I initially requested for an instrumental or high-speed dance track sung in English, but during discussions, we decided on a Japanese Euro number to clarify this theme.
I planned for this movie to initially be a mere car battle with an easy to understand conclusion, but I was extremely inspired by Kanako Hoshino's lyrics, and tried to make an introspective movie with the theme of "I can shine like the sun when I'm illuminated by people around me".

<Original story, part 2>

Emiru originally arrived with the intention of starting a battle, but an unprepared Akane fell behind.
The real battle will start again sometime... although if it ends up like this... however, as the fastest of the trio, Yuri will drive if it's a solo race.
On the other hand, Emiru entrusted it to her childhood friend and partner Aki, who isn't just skilled at driving, but also tuning.
While acknowledging Yuri's speed, Aki realized that she wasn't aware that this was an intense conflict, where they were prepared to make contact.
Anticipating Yuri's excellent skills, she deceptively pushed against her bumper while cornering, with the purpose of making contact instead of drifting, spinning her car out.
Since Aki was familiar with car features, neither car was scratched, but Yuri completely lost her confidence and became depressed from the loss.

Mika, who was cautious of competitions, took a step back and observed them last night, but being unable to see a depressed Yuri and taking revenge, she quietly left late at night to face Aki in battle.
Yuri's existence is like the sun to her, who shone a light to her previously cloudy heart.
However, although she was able to overtake Aki's car, Mika lost her fighting spirit and left, wrapped up in the thought that even if she won against her, she couldn't regain Yuri's true brilliance. So she continued to race alone.
