What dj nagureo and dj TAKA did for the arcade beatmania / beatmania IIDX titles respectively, Toshiyuki Kakuta did for the CS versions of those games. Prior to his becoming a sound director for the arcade beatmania IIDX games in GOLD, Toshiyuki worked near exclusively on the home versions of beatmania/IIDX. However, when Tatsh was unable to sound direct GOLD, he was given a position as an arcade sound director for the first time, even moving to becoming the series' head sound director when DJ Yoshitaka stepped down to work on REFLEC BEAT. Since then, Toshiyuki has been a regular contributor to most BEMANI series as well.
Toshiyuki's music in BEMANI is mainly focused on electronic music, particularly hardcore, drum'n'bass, and techno. However, he has also composed rock and metal songs for the GuitarFreaks & DrumMania series in recent years as well.
Toshiyuki is the current head sound director of the beatmania IIDX series.
