More Info

"previously unreleased material from 1993, being a remix of his very first cassette release on Vanilla.

One-sided LP on blue vinyl in an edition of 319." [label info]

Steve Fricker / Cheeses Int: "Originally, the plan was to re-release the Hydrophobia tape as a CD, this was around 2001-2. When Akifumi came back to me he said the tape was only a one-sided C-30, so he sent me the remix he did of the piece from 1993 that he never released, to make it a better length for a CD. He titled the original piece Hydrophobia 1991 and the remix Hydrophobia 1993 and sent me the artwork for the CD. A little while after this I decided to stop Cheeses Int., so the project was shelved. Last year I restarted my activities but as Akifumi had sadly died in the interim I thought that it would never see the light of day. However, as a few labels were re-releasing Aube material I investigated and found the guy to ask for permission and he said yes. As the original Vanilla cassette is still available, I decided to release just the 1993 piece. I'm pleased to put it out in the end. My only regret is that Akifumi isn't here to see it."
