I had an opportunity to make some remix of "Nami Shimada" a Japanese female shinger
in 1989. The composer "Yosuke Sugiyama" offered me to produce remix tracks of
her songs because of hearing to my 12" records,and "Sun Shower" was one of them.
Then I brought records including "Sun Shower" to New York in December 1989, and some
DJs like Larry Levan or Victor Rosado started to play the song via Hisa Ishioka an organizer
of NY house music scene. I was so happy to have much order to make remix,many friends
and musical relations since "Sun Shower" has been listened to many people.
