Ayumi Hamasaki Wiki

ayu-mi-x is Ayumi Hamasaki's first remix album. It was sold as a two-CD set, one disc being the "Remix Club Side," and the other being the "Acoustic Orchestra Side." Each side has its own specific identity and style of cover photo. The release was announced even before the official release date of the A Song for XX album, however, it was not in stores for several months.

Many remixes were done during the production time for the album, however they did not make the final cut. They were sold in mid- to late-1999 on several 12" vinyl releases. Several of these remixes (many in edited versions) later appeared on the reissued singles in 2001, however several edits, instrumental versions, and vocal tracks have never been released on CD.

"Honestly, when my producer max matsuura talked about remixes, there was resistance on my part, I wasn't at all OK with it... This remix album is something my producer and I talked about and decided on together, but remixes are something I don't really understand...

But, this is a producer who's been influenced for years, decades even, by dance music, and has worked alot on the "remix" genre, so he really stuck with explaining it to me, and eventually I came to an agreement with him."

-Ayumi Hamasaki, beatfreak Magazine

"Because I like simple feeling things like acoustic songs, I told the producer 'If we're gonna do remixes, then we're gonna do acoustic versions too!'... I think they'll probably sound interesting to people who hear them."

-Ayumi Hamasaki, beatfreak Magazine
