I LOVE AYUMI
Ayu has ventured to take every track from 2001’s “evolution” to the latest tracks from 2007 and put them all together on one best of collection completely remastered! This collection includes not only new vocal overdubs, remixes, and arrangements, but the original recorded versions conveying every breath and nuance from the time they were first released. Rather than simply putting out a collection of recorded masters, ayu’s way is to update these past in newly remastered 2007 versions. And there’s no better way to give these tracks recorded over the last six years a signature sound than by selecting as the collection’s mastering engineer Brian “Big Bass” Gardner of LA’s Bernie Grundman Mastering, a multi-Grammy Award winner and an engineer with years of experience mastering the tracks of the world’s top recording artists. Mastering that fully brings out the bottom end and pushes the vocals to the front of the mix to achieve a sound with awesome, driving energy makes the new release 『 BEST 2』also worthy of the handle “Big Bass”.
