Japanese

午前0時に飛ばす Highway
一対一の最強バトル
追い抜き様にキメた Poker Face
アスファルトに何度も刻む Skid Mark

互角に荒ぶる熱き情熱
譲れぬポジション 煽り煽られ過激な Midnight Game

白煙撒き散らし Drive Away
闇を突き抜ける CANNON BALL
ニトロで振り切れ ミラー越しの駆け引き
燃える想い焦がし Chase the Dream
運命を変えゆく Straight Road
マシンに託した それぞれの強さ見せつける Dead Heat


磨き上げてきた技と 拘り抜いてきたカスタム
確かな手応えを感じる今夜なら I'm gonna win it

霧雨撥ね除けて Lead the Way
闇を駆け抜ける CANNON GIRL
ターボで逃げ切れ 遠ざかりゆくシルエット
最後の最後まで Blazin' Heart
時に大胆さで Get Chance
ボディに口づけ 更なる頂上 目指すのさ Fire !!

Romaji

gozen reiji ni tobasu Highway
ichitaiichi no saikyou BATTLE
oinukisama ni kimeta Poker Face
ASPHALT ni nando mo kizamu Skid Mark

gokaku ni araburu atsuki jounetsu
yuzurenu POSITION aoriaorare kageki na Midnight Game

hakuen makichirashi Drive Away
yami wo tsukinukeru CANNON BALL
NITRO de furikire MIRROR goshi no kakehiki
moeru omoi kogashi Chase the Dream
unmei wo kaeyuku Straight Road
MACHINE ni takushita sorezore no tsuyosa misetsukeru Dead Heat


migakiagetekita SKILL to kakawarinuitekita CUSTOM
tashika na tegotae wo kanjiru konya nara I'm gonna win it

kirisame hanenokete Lead the Way
yami wo kakenukeru CANNON GIRL
TURBO de nigekire toozakariyuku SILHOUETTE
saigo no saigo made Blazin' Heart
toki ni daitansa de Get Chance
BODY ni kuchizuke saranaru choujou mezasu no sa Fire !!

Song Production Information

BEMANI Sound Team "L.E.D."

Hello, BEMANI Sound Team "L.E.D." here.
The title and concept of beatmania IIDX 25 CANNON BALLERS is "race".
Speaking of race, there are several genres that come to mind immediately, I think that one of them is EUROBEAT.
While deciding the direction for the recorded songs this time, I thought that IIDX with 40 EUROBEAT (or FUSION) songs would be okay, but I also inevitably thought that said direction was already made to some extent. So this time, each composer imagined a race, with a speed feeling derived from it, or I have a driving image, with a wide range of genres.
However, with this concept, I was concerned that EUROBEAT-like songs would concentrate, so I asked each composer to avoid the EUROBEAT approach.

While keeping that in mind, I myself wanted that one signature song from the beginning of the production, so I decided to make a hot EUROBEAT-like song with my heart.
Why I haven't done EUROBEAT before? Is it because I wanted to try my best with CANNON BALLERS this time?
It was that kind of feeling.

As I remember, when I first listened to dance music, I thought it was EUROBEAT.
The 4-beat with the flashy lead sounds, and the orchestral hit mixed with the solid bass into an exciting beat, it was very sensational.
At that time, I could hardly tell the song titles except for the super famous songs, but because my work frequently played a Western music channel, I often heard them, I remember the tension going up.
Now, 20 years since then, I have the great opportunity to produce EUROBEAT, I feel like I cannot deny the DESTINY.

The FULLSIZE MIX of this song is recorded on the "beatmania IIDX 25 CANNON BALLERS ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK" which is currently on sale now.
It features the guitarist Josh, who created a nitro boost with his intense GUITAR, giving a MAX finished sensation.

I would be pleased if you could listen to it as well.
