Japanese musician Yuji Takenouchi has a fascinating history. He started work writing music for computer games in 1990, made his debut on R&S Records' Apollo offshoot in 1997 (as Mr YT, with the largely overlooked Southern Paradise EP), and then promptly vanished from sight for 10 years. Somewhere along the way, his music found its way into the hands of Ron Trent, who pestered Future Vision to snap up the two tracks featured here. It's easy to see why "Across Your Mind" so impressed the Chicagoan deep house legend; its' wide-eyed blend of fizzing jazz rhythm, classic ambient-era pads, twinkling melodies and bubbling bass is reminiscent of Trent at his best. "In Your Phantom" is, if anything, even better, with jazz pianos tumbling over an undulating bassline and dense percussion.
