Boomkat Product Review:
Apollo join the Japanese house bandwagon from their own angle, reissuing MR. YT’s sought-after Japanese ambient house classic, Brand New Day (1997), crammed with previously unreleased material.
With a name like Yuji Technouchi, this guy was clearly born to make electronic music, as further evinced through the sublime stages of his Brand New Day - from the pink-hued tonal float of Morning, thru the lushly jazzed and dub deep house of Afternoon to the airy string bliss of Evening and the melting comedown of Nite.
But they only account for under half of the newly expanded tracklist, which now also includes ripe fruit in Rêve’s plushest Prescription styles, plus the romantic ambience of Souvenir, a latinate dream named Ocean In Heaven, and the nimblest bass work supporting the creamy strokes of Regard.
