The best 25 seconds gifted to us by Konami-Bemani.

Released: 2002 | Some Beautiful Genius In Bemani | Experimental

In retrospect, I really wish Bemani had gone all-in on this sort of vibe for their entire discography, but what offerings they have are nothing short of immense. We’ll get to that later.

The Nonstop Select theme is an unusual departure from the rest of the game’s menu audio, also serving as an aural warning that you are probably seconds from getting your shit kicked to next week. But at least you get this fine banger beforehand.

The point is, this is the kind of quick, catchy, formative crap that permanently scars a person’s music taste (and aesthetic vision, if we’re being honest right now).

The 30 minute extended version.
