I was worried the chorus could kill the track depending on the arrangement. The verses made a huge impression on me from the start but the chorus really depends on the arrangement, and the ats mix really comes through on that! It needs to be a full version, wish it was the official version. If the official sounds lackluster it will really bring to light how drab her team of arrangers have been lately.

you're totally right, IMO that's the big issue with a lot of song from "Love song" album. All that symphonic production for songs composed by an electronic/experimental musician.
ATS found the G spot of the song

I don't think it'd be a 'lately' problem though since ats- worked on both WORDS and aeternal pretty recently. If anything, it's just Ayu's vision for the songs in most cases.

That’s a good point. Maybe this speaks more to how Ayu pushes the arrangers into her vision for the song? Seems without being under the pressure and influence of the label and/or Ayu, this producer was able to do some of his better work. Or maybe it’s because the composition and vibe of this song is totally different than that “Sakura petal”-vibed shit she’s been leaning into extensively for her ballads.

Love the chorus. It remind me with the 90-es era or an anime OP song. She need more songs like this.

Somehow I am pretty sure the ats mix will either be the Original Mix or that it will be included in the single...

Ayu featured 3 more today and the Ayuromix by ELEMENTAS, shunta.K (Twitter) mix, and abottchen were featured!

It's surreal to see Ayu talk about abottchen since they've been doing the piano arranges for so long and to plug them on IG! I hope they see it soon! I also hope someone saves the story for them to cherish, someone captured a bit of it on Twitter but not the whole thing.

That is so great that she noticed them, they do such awesome piano versions.
She should hire them for an official piano album^^

Komuro hasn't really done arrangement for Ayu though, likeliest ones to be the ones in the final mix are Yuta or ats-/his arrangement partner.

天啊!!!! 終於! 我們的影片被ayu看到了:sob::sob::tada::tada:
有人可以幫我們翻譯寫了些什麼嗎?
好感動喔! 感謝大家的支持!! :sob:

Abottchen saw the story! So cute seeing their reaction, basically "OMG AYU SAW IT" lol.

It could be Tasaku. When it comes to TK upbeat compositions itís him behind the arrangements (snowy kiss, the SMGO, you & me)

We could share the acapella track with some western producers and convince them to make their arrangements for the songs. (Clarence Clarity?) Anyone wanna give it a shot? I'd love to see what kind of productions they can crank out given how J-Pop the composition sounds lol

I LOVE the abottchen version! Kudos to him for all the amazing work! I would faint if it's me that Ayu notice!
