dong-tepo no. 1
Song Connections / Remixes
- The overlays feature Fireboy in his debut appearance.
- The song title was used as a joke for a fake nagureo song called ROCKET FACTORY. According to a post on the Solid State Squad forums seen here (instead taken from a site linked in the post):
"ROCKET FACTORY = dong tepo no. 1 is a black joke in Japan. To put it simply, the name of the missle that North Korea fired over Japan, causing much concern, was Tepo Don. So: Tepo Don -> Dong Tepo -> Rocket Factory ... is how it goes."
Music Production Info
Commentary by dj TAKA:
dj nagureo had something of a difference of opinion on what we should do for music and song direction for 2nd style, but as the schedule started to creep up on us he gave us this song. This is the only song I couldn't clear on normal mode, and I think it's the hardest seven star song we have. I've got some comments from dj nagureo on this song.
"'dong-tepo No. 1' is a horrible game you probably don't know, but as a level-up countermeasure for you Bemani fans, we've done a thorough investigation. Even after this, I hope you'll all be prepared for the "dong-tepo investigation in game form."
Video Production Info
Many players have no personal experience with the ultimate in difficulty, the seven star song. This song from dj nagureo seems to have been waiting for players to attain that personal dimension higher than TENGOKU. It's labeled as techno, but it doesn't really lend itself to any single description, and the more you listen to the song the more influences it seems to draw on. GOLI considered a particularly funny kind of technopop, so he decided to let the character from the 4KEYS mode song select screen, Fireboy (or FB for short) make an appearance in this song.
