This is Tokyo-based Hiroshi Watanabe's fourth full-length release on Kompakt. Kaito presents the perfect antidote to bring us out of this year's intense mid-summer heat into the tranquil cooling of the autumn season. As already accomplished with his previous full lengths Special Life and Special Love, Watanabe now presents Hundred Million Love Years -- the beat-less accompaniment to go alongside his acclaimed full-length Hundred Million Light Years. This record is a landmark addition to Kompakt's cherished Pop Ambient utopia. Another dimension to his music is unveiled with the removal of percussion -- his songs expand and bring the cerebral euphoria that he celebrates in his music to a dramatically different context from his renowned beat-laden output, however equally as satisfying. From the oceanic wash that gently mingles with your tangerine dreams on "Nobody Could Be Alone," the strobe-lit vibrations of "The Universe" that impregnates your soul with joy, and the out-of-orbit rhythmic arpeggiations of the exclusive album climax "Soul Of Heart," Kaito is here to take you on a mystical journey of orchestral waves -- a constellation of flawlessly crafted minimalism in its truest form.
