"Kaito is Hiroshi Watanabe. And what he's doing is magic. He is a moving interface, Techno poet and soul man. He mixed classical New York Deep House with Pop Ambient and Neo-Trance to a thrilling something which can be considered as the future of Soul. Seriously. Euphoric audiences at Kaito's DJ sets are swept off their feet by the cosiness this charming and discrete man from the Far East is able to create. This guy definitely knows what he1s doing and can look back at a vivid music past. He1d spent a couple of years in the US where he gained a lot of credibility in New York's Deep House scene: he was resident dj at Save The Robots, guest DJ at Twilo, Tunnel and Speed, and not to mention his numerous productions for legendary labels as King Street, Nitegrooves and Oxygen Music Works. And now, Hiroshi is bundling his exceptional sense of emotional music in his New project called Kaito. Unscrupulously romantic, he mixes trance music elements (Cosmic Baby, Energy 52) with spiritual House ingredients (see Joe Claussel) and spices them up with Cologne minimal sounds. A really drop-dead gorgeous mixture. Kaito, this wonderful delicate lichtgestalt, has already conquered the hearts and dj cases from all over the world with his three maxi singles 'Beautiful Day', 'Everlasting' and 'Awakening' (all on Kompakt) and with his debut, he will definitely keep on shining there."
