To you who are reading the comments! Heyahowyadoin! We're the guerrilla squad charged with defending the peace of the universe, Naaaaaaaaaaaaapanapakiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick! And this is our message, peace (three times in the sky).
"It's been quite a while since we've done a real club-style breakbeats piece. Four-on-the-floor beats are pretty mainstream nowadays, but since making rock style music into dance music is our mission, we seasoned it with good bass riffs and guitar choking for the sake of universal peace. Even though it was for universal peace, it was kind of hard, and reality is all about cycles of destruction and rebirth, so music that can recreate that kind of balance is an exceedingly valuable thing, I think. To borrow the words of Yoda, 'Anger leads to hatred. Hatred leads to fear. Fear leads to the dark side.' That's the sort of sentiment this song was born out of."
What do you think, everyone? Were you moved? Well, until we meet again, adios! Chuwats ... puchu.
Video Production Info
Even though the 21st century seemed like it would be more of the same, somehow we've broken into the new century. This song has that sort of contemporary, near-future rock spirit to it.
Even though it's near future, it's not a clean future of high-tech automatic cars flying through the sky, but an image of a dirty, spiritual future, where the sixth sense of man, dulled by the day-to-day ventures of modern society, awakens and evolves into something new.
That's why I was aiming for something showy, something digital yet organic. If you ever see a force like that, locked up in the earth, or maybe within people, I think you'd see a shining light that looked kind of like this. It's already shining.
The kicking in the shining part, the warp during the delivery, isn't it really cool!? Isn't it shiny!? If you can enjoy that sort of delicate balance in this video, it'd make me really happy.
