Ayane Yamazaki released a remix to the single ‘Sleep To Dream 眠りの理由 (TOYOMU Remix)‘. This time collaborating with TOYOMU to create a nice blend of Tokyo City pop and Dream pop. This remix adds a bouncy beat and vibrant melodies that give it an edge over the original version. I think the original version is just as lovely as is however the remix gives it a different mood. I honestly wish I could sing along since it’s that good. Although I have no idea what is being said in the lyrics, ‘Sleep To Dream 眠りの理由 (TOYOMU Remix)‘ is certainly a beautiful song. Not much is said about the actual song itself in the press release so instead here’s what we know:
Ayane Yamazaki’s music is called“Tokyo city pop”. She is now 21 years old. It features a voice that transcends gender and language, and a unique melody that mixes East and West.
The new single is a remix of “Sleep to Dream“which was ranked No. 2 by RadioTFSC in Germany. It’s a masterpiece of chill-out music. The remixer is a Japanese DJ/Track Maker TOYOMU that has been featured on Pitchfork, FACT, BBC and Billboard for its comfortable low-fire hip-hop and quirky sound art.
Ayane Yamazaki, who works in Tokyo, and TOYOMU, who works in Kyoto, hit it off and created it on the Internet.Flexible and relaxing bedroom dance music with poetic Japanese sound.
It is a song that the hard days pass and new days begin.
I have to say Yamazaki and TOYOMU work well together. I’d certainly be interested in hearing some more collabs from these two. How about you?
