It's Party Time

If ever there was a title that wore it's intentions right on it's sleeve, it's this one from Halcali's Fantastic Plastic Machine produced new single, due out June 20th.

Since writing and speculating a bit about their new collaboration a while ago, I've been anxious to hear it, but just read the descriptions. This song sounds like it's going to be excellent.

From CD Japan:

New single release from Halcali featuring a dance-floor rocking sound thanks to production from Fantastic Plastic Machine. Features a four-to-the-floor beat with samples from The High-Lows' song "Nichiyoubi yori no Shisha."

From Neowing:

Fantastic Plastic Machineプロデュースによるフロアー対応な超キラーチューン! FPMが最も得意とするアゲアゲ4つ打ちトラックに、何とTHE HIGH-LOWSの「日曜日よりの使者」のサビ部分を大胆にサンプリング!! 一度聞いたら忘れられない楽曲になる事間違いなし!
From producer Fantastic Plastic Machine comes this new floor filling killer tune that has him doing what he does best- a stomping 4 time beat with a daring sample from the "sad" part of The High-Lows Nichiyoubi Yori No Shisha (A Messenger From Sunday). Hear this tune once, and we guarantee you'll never forget it!
Excited yet? FPM's own records aside, look no further than the contributions he's made to Halcali's back catalogue already (Bacon's Otsukare Summer and Nosusume's Wakakusa Dance and Baby Blue!) to remind yourself that FPM is one producer (unlike others in their recent past) who knows exactly how to handle them and deliver that part of Halcali that makes Halcali Halcali. I always thought that Wakakusa Dance was a song that belonged in the charts, and now a song that sounds like it's been cut from the same cloth hopefully will.

And I'm thankful it isn't another stock song like Tougenkyo, or even worse, another dreary anime tie-up.

Thanks to Risa!

Here we go. A live version of Nichiyoubi from YouTube. As it turns out, I had heard this song in a few shopping centres and clothes shops in the past. If the sample doesn't end up being from the "sha-na-na" chorus I'll buy the new Do-nuts single.


The b-side of the "maxi single" is called Clutch (info from HMV), which will hopefully be a song about learning to drive. I hope this is another turn by regular Halcali b-side producer Hiroshi Nakamura. It might be worth noting that he released an album called Clutch himself.

Yeah, I've never heard it. Wonder what it sounds like? It might be worth a trip to go rent it and investigate.

wow....the song thats being sampled sounds fantastic!
I hope this is as good as the other FPM produced HALCALI songs.

I'm gonna pre-order it very soon.
Hopefully there will be some good b-sides too! :D
(and then an album announcement)

If they dont use the 'sha-na-na' in the sampling, I'll EAT the new Do-nuts single.

I hope FPM does something with this song, because the source is SLOW. And I can't say I've liked any of Halcali's slow stuff much.

I doubt this song will be slow, I'm expecting something along the lines of Wakakusa Dance.
