[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
Please kindly meke self-introduction.

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
My name is Tomoyuki Sakakida, ans I am from Sapporo.
I have made tracks from I was 16 years old with my real name.
My pieces were HIPHOP at the beginning, but I changed my main music to 4 beats from 2008.

[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
What is your concept on track making?
Who did you have effect from?

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
I do not grudge any of my idea, and I always try to make the best one.
I always let whatever comes in my mind in a piece even if it does not seems to harmonize with club music.
Sometimes a phrase or tone which sounds opposite from club music can be beautiful tracks through good work.

I do not come up with any specific person who affect me a lot.
However, various domestic progressive artists stimulate me for sure.

[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
Could you please tell us about what you feel and what you express in your music and titles?
What is your appeal point?

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
I prefer always challenging new stuff to building up a own sound style with a specific taste.
Actually, “Furaibow” comes from this attitude.
The main point of “Furaibow” is an aggressive taste like a explosion,
so I just want audience feel music without thinking.

[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
Do you have any pains on production?

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
I would say I run out of my energy when I complete a piece.
This makes me feel that I will never be able to produce a better piece,
and I guess my inner standard gets higher and higher.
This negative thinking way always prevent me from working.

[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
“Furaibow” with gorgeous 13 remixers is the biggest work of GALAXY RECZ, isn’t it?
I feel a special eagerness.
Do you have any special emotion that you want listener to feel?

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
It is really great to expand your network through a piece and music.
People who provide remix, people who compete with at remix contest,
people who made comments for my work uploaded on SNS,
people who meet for the first time through this piece.

Those people are my important music companion I met through music,
and it does not matter if I see him/her in real life or have contact only on internet.

I think the goal of this project is feeling strong connection between people
when I look back after we finished all remixes.
We hope that a listener can feel or have connection through this release as many people as possible.

[Noriyuki Hashimoto]
If you have any, please kindly give the last message.

[Tomoyuki Sakakida]
I will put my heart and soul into my tracks, and I will make tons of interesting pieces.
Please kindly support me.
Wonderful music for everyone!
