Official Song CommentEdit
For this new DDR song, I brought back my old alias for making fanciful ethnic music “world sequence”.
I first discussed this song at the unveiling of the new DDR cabinet at the arcade show earlier this year.
Lately I’ve been receiving more and more requests to do non-pop songs and venture off a little bit into different rhythm songs, so I suppose this song falls into that category?
I was asked to make a song outside the typical dance song, so it was decided that I would make a song inspired by the marching of soldiers and that was combined with a folksy-color to the song to make it sound intercontinental.
Qipchaq was the original name given to the region of central Asia by the old tribes who lived there. You may remember reading about this tribe in your history textbook as part of the Ghangis Khan’s Mongolian empire, but it seems that the tribe was filled with brave warriors and the region was often engrossed in battles.
I named the song Qipchaq because the song has the image of warriors wondering through the vast grass plains on their horses, although this title was added after the song was composed (laughs). Thanks to the title, I was able to learn a little bit about Chinese history.
I think that you can imagine traveling through the vast grass plains while you dance to this song.
