A little history...
Hamasaki Ayumi (浜崎あゆみ) born October 2, 1978, is a Japanese pop singer and Japanese idol originally from Fukuoka. In Japan (and among her US fans), she is commonly called by her nickname Ayu. To this date, she has released seven full-length studio albums, one mini-album, two compilation albums, and 38 singles. She officially debuted in 1998 with her single poker face, which sold 43,000 copies. Fasforward to Janurary 1999, where She then released her first album A Song for XX which quickly became certified platinum. Fast forward again 3 years through countless succesful album and single releases to the first day of 2002, where her fourth album "I am..." was released, and like its predecessors LOVEppears and Duty, it achieved double-platinum status, with sales of 2.3 million copies.
About the Project:
This Multi Editor Project (MEP) is a dedication to Hamasaki Ayumi, using various remixes from her Daybreak single, including remixes of platinum record songs like I Am..., Daybreak, and No more words.
The idea came to me when listening to her CD in my car one day, I thought "This would be pretty cool music to do a stylistic amv project to", so I got on the boards, posted an interest gauge thread, and found enough Ayu fans to make the project a reality. After many delays, a few dropouts, and many many techncial issues on my end >.< the first project dedicated to Hamasaki Ayumi is finally complete and ready for your viewing pleasure. I assure you that every editor involved gave their track 120% effort and did the best that they could do, and I must say, thanks to them, the project has turned out phenominal. There is a good mix of music styles and pace in here, so there should be a little something for everyone. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the tallents that worked with me in this project, and I beleive I speak for everyone when I say it has been a tremendous experience for all of us.
