The only sticks you'll want though are glow sticks.

Today's track is Playball by Nobuyoshi Sano "Sanodg" from Beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD CS

Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly.

It is usually DarkTetsuya the one who picks BEMANI related stuff for this segment, but I really wanted to pick this song for some time now. I think I don't need to talk about this game, if you're a listener of OLR, you already know what Beatmania is and why it's pretty damn awesome, and hard. Of course, Konami has it's own artist that make the music for the series, but they sometimes have people from other companies to make songs for the series, like Sanodg, who is pretty much famous for his songs on the Ridge Racer series, as also his contribution to the Korg-DS games.

Sanodg is pretty much one of my favorite music artist/composers in video game history, he has some pretty awesome songs and this is one of them. It starts out very simple, and the then the beats start to flow throughout the song, it is trance-ish in a way too, though it has some pretty off-beats moments that make it pretty cool to hear and probably dance to, and it is fun to play on BMIIDX too. This song is a console exclusive too, so you'll have to pick up of copy GOLD to play it.

BTW, Sanodg has a Twitter if you want to give him a follow: @Sanodg
