A: Beautiful Day
B: Air Rider


No long time ago the Kompakt people were sitting in their sun-heated office thinking about the good old days when tracks like Humate's 'Love Stimulation' or Energy 52's 'Cafe Del Mar' were played everywhere and loooove was in the air ...That was then but this is now. No nostalgia but a wish rose up: We want nu trance! All at a sudden the postman dropped a little package containing some tracks by the Tokyo-based artist Kaito aka Hiroshi Watanabe who also releases under his Aqua guise on the well known Japanese Frogman imprint. Still captured by the 1993's trance euphoria his music made everybody at Kompakt Feel like: 'yeah, this is it!' The perfect mixture between Kompakt's minimal style and good ingredients of classic trance. The title track 'Beautiful Day' is a slamming masterpiece with a little kitsch inside while 'air rider' on the flip will surely be the royal flash in every DJ set. Brilliantly arranged catchy goose pimple techno at its best. Love is back in town. Please file this record under: Hymn!
