Song Production Information
I naturally wanted to include trance and techno elements in my music, and "INSERTiON" is the result of my interpretation of that.
The tempo changes throughout the song make you feel like you're being shaken, and although the ending becomes fast towards the climax, I want you to keep playing it like you're addicted, especially those who experienced "such situations".
I've recently been addicted to trance, so I naturally wanted to include it in my music, and "INSERTiON" is the result of my interpretation of that. I never really liked techno music in the past, but in the last few years, I've been immersed with digital music to this day. Actually, I play and create everything in real time, from the drums to the keyboard, whether it's techno or Euro music.
Furthermore, INSERTiON is a song that's conscious of DDR's gameplay, so it has a few new tricks. The shifting tempo of this song will make you feel "something", especially when it reaches its climax at the end of the song.
