Song of the Week! 9 May 2015


Still saddened by yesterday's news, today's feature is about independent unit Phenotas' musical contribution to Taiko games.

As you may remember, the songs from the Girls Pop Mania mini-album became actual Namco Originals with different debut games, with the first two premiering on the second Taiko 3DS video-game and the latter two becoming Kimidori Version's first new Originals, alongside the former two.

Denshi-drum no Tatsujin is one of the Kimidori debuts, featuring the original Phenotas unit's members: Sho Yamamoto (山本奨) is the songwriter, Sawa "sweets" Mikihiko (澤"sweets"ミキヒコ) is the digital percussion player and mico is the singer. The song's lyrics are about trying to find the personal way to catch the rhythm while performing a song, though the use of different percussive instruments. As noted by Phenotas' members, the small instrumental interlude at the beginning of the song wasn't originally intended to be part of the song itself, but was ultimately included because it was strictly tailored to the original tape the song was intended to be included, thus becoming a part of it in order not to waste a re-take. The song's long version is being featured in the aforementioned Girls Pop Mania mini-album.

Composer/notecharter Kawagen Collagen (カワーゲン・コラーゲン) is behind the charts of Phenotas' Namco Original composition, featuring a lot of 1/16 clusters under a stable BPM value along the way. Although being considered by many as a low-tier 9* Oni, its chart eases rookie players of said difficulty tier to both 5-note clusters staples and half-stanza-long note clusers.
