I'm from the UK and I came across Hiroshi Watanabe and his music last year. I live not far from Manchester; so I know a fair bit about trance and acid trance of the likes of 'The Future Sounds of London' etc, but this guy is the best at deep progressive trance that builds you up to a massive climax and then gracefully brings you back through an excellent gradient of sound and tone. It’s colourful and awesome!

Absoulutelly outstanding piece of composer house/trance. This get backs to the memories of old trance vibes and will be definitively best filed under "HYMN". The word "KAITO" stands for "He who is able to explain the universe" and is doin' after Hiroshi's own 3-year old child (who's at the cover & back I think). Get it now!

A Recommendation to all who like house music and are open for excursions between styles. "Intension" on the "Everlasting" 12" on Kompakt is in my opinion the best work by him so far. Lush house mixed with trancey elements.
