NAOKI (前田尚紀, Maeda Naoki) is a videogame music producer, born on April 28 in Toyonaka City, Osaka, Japan. He is the single most prolific producer of the Dance Dance Revolution series, but has also made contributions to other games in the Bemani series. It is sometimes difficult to tell just what he does, because of his usage of many pseudonyms (Ω, 8 bit, 180, 190, 190', 200, BLUE DESTROYERS, Crystal Aliens, d-complex, D.J.RICH feat. Tailbros., DE-SIRE, DIVAS, FACTOR-X, KTz, Luv UNLIMITED, mitsu-O!, N&S, N.M.R, NAOKI 190, NAOKI underground, NM, NO.9, NW260, RE-VENGE, RevenG, Stone Bros. and UZI-LAY, among many others). His style is as eclectic as his usage of names - he's done everything from dance to rock, and pop to ethnic tunes.
NAOKI enjoys the city of Los Angeles, CA, spring, summer, making music, and personal freedom. He dislikes fall, winter, jealousy, selfishness, and quietness. He began playing the piano at the age of 4, and attended the Osaka University of Arts.
