Song Production Information
Congratulations to BEMANI on its 10th year anniversary!
This song is based on my experiences back when I first played beatmania 2ndMIX.
There were a bunch of cool tracks on it, and playing a different song each time made me feel excited.
The image quality of beatmania wasn't great.
Now the game has evolved.
In addition to two additional keys, the difficulty has been increased significantly.
The image and color of the game is excellent, however!
Now, to follow it with some great music!
The world music scene is ever changing, and this song reflects that.
This song, based on hard-schranz, was created reflecting the evolution of technology.
Few people, however, can truly appreciate this sound and genre.
"This song is a bit short for a schranz song", I thought, so I added a few extra key sounds at the end.
This song is slightly different from authentic schranz songs, but I hope to look forward to you liking it.
Special thanks: DJ KENT
Video Production Information
From the beginning, the selected cuts of visualizations that beatmania has used in its games has gradually improved. The early technical limitations meant that more focus had to be spent on the music and less on the visual look of the game.
The character that is seen in the video is like a shadow, running and jumping from one place to another, in a simple yet exquisite work. The impact that it has is destructive.
