Kaito: Hiroshi Watanabe.
As with his initial full-length Special Life, Kompakt had the good sense to reissue Kaito's Hundred Million Love Years stripped of its imaginative percussion and programming work, leaving only layers of synthesizers that create some of the most melodic textures and atmospherics few modern dance records can rival. Like Special Love, this presents Kaito's compositions in a whole new light, highlighting parts and melodic passages that would normally be hidden under a layer of furious drum kicks and fills. The album's opening track alone is hauntingly energetic and borderline pastoral with sweeping synth washes and stabs that easily bests the original version. Easily one of the most engaging records from Kompakt or their sub-labels in 2006. ~ Rob Theakston
