EDITORS’ NOTES

Utada Hikaru’s “Simple and Clean,” known as “Hikari” in Japanese, is one of the most famous songs in J-pop history. Serving as the theme song to the video game Kingdom Hearts, the swelling number has become one of the music titan’s signature songs. This EP reimagines it as a thumping and skittery dance number, full of burbling keyboards and pounding percussion. Utada’s singing even gets sliced and diced at times, giving these remixes a frantic pacing that reveals new sides of these songs.

Not the Same

Incrediburch,

I highly recommend you sample these songs before buying.

The full version of Simple and Clean - Ray of Hope MIX (and Hikari) is mixed/mastered(?) very differently than the version that is used with the intro cutscene for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2 - A Fragmentary Passage. This results in a different sound and pacing than I expected, so personally I'm dissatisfied.

The other version by P-Club is very much a Club type mix. Not quite my taste either.

2.8 !!
