Song Production Information
They say Lion Musashi shook the Daibako scene with rave as an old friend of tiger YAMATO's, but it looks like he's an accomplished house tracker nowadays who does some DJ work in western Azabu.
I got some comments from him today.
( dj TAKA )
"Thank you, everyone.
Oh, every keeps saying, "Safari, Safari", but my song is called "THE Safari", so say it right, please.
( Lion Musashi )
Video Production Information
Apparently, Lion Musashi came to dj TAKA and said, "You guys should pick the song name". Somehow it fell into my hands.
According to dj TAKA, Mr. Lion is kind of a scary guy, so even if he says we can pick the name, what will happen if he doesn't like it ... ?
That's the kind of thing I worried about, since I had no real relation to him ...
It has a pretty cheery rhythm, and feels kind of like a song for a trip down south and evoked the image of a long journey, so I thought "THE SAFARI", which has kind of a deep ring to it, fit it pretty nicely. From the sounds of the comments above, it seems he really likes it too - I'm glad!
It'd be nice if dj TAKA said "thanks", though.
