Naoki Maeda (WiKi)

Mého oblíbeného autora BEMANI hudby jménem Naoki Maeda se rozhodla WiKipedia nějako odstranit. Tak to tedy ne pánové. Házím sem poslední verzi z historie, a házím to sem. Pokud jste to ještě nečetli, doporučuji alespoň to projet. Budete vědět, kolik pseudonym má a co udělal. Určitě od něj znáte pár DDR songů, jen nevíte, že je to on.

Ano, Naoki používá i sociální sítě

Naoki Maeda (前田 尚紀, Maeda Naoki?, born April 28, 1961 in Toyonaka, Osaka), more commonly called simply Naoki, is a Japanese music composer and producer who works for Konami. Naoki’s official title is Konami AM Internal Sound Team.

Though Naoki worked on many different video game titles like Salamander, his most known contribution is to the Bemani series as the main composer for the Dance Dance Revolution games. Most of his songs are signed with a pseudonym. Little information on Naoki is revealed officially: for example, on an interview with several music producers released in the DDRMAX Dance Dance Revolution booklet, Naoki’s profile was the least complete, not revealing his age or how much time he’s been working for Konami.
