Renaissance is delighted to announce a very fresh start for 2006 - '3D', a compilation that welcomes a new concept and DJ to the label's ever-growing series of albums.

First to take up the challenge is US-based Japanese wünderkind Satoshi Tomiie. An integral member of Manhattan's prestigious Def Mix collective, Satoshi is famed for his blistering productions and remixes, and his pioneering SAW label. Clubbers across the world know him for the incredible DJ sets that see him criss-cross the globe on a regular basis, making him one of dance music's most respected ambassadors and an immediate candidate to launch the '3D' project.

As the name suggests, '3D' is a triple album, with each disc drawing on the key musical aspects of Satoshi's career. First up is Club, a bang-up-to-date recording of his live sets; then there's Studio, a CD that really proves Satoshi's commitment to the project with its seven exclusive remixes and re-edits of the likes of Photek, Kosheen & Hybrid; finally the Home CD switches gear and delves into Satoshi's personal collection of favourite cuts.

"It takes a unique artist to qualify for 3D," says Renaissance's director Geoff Oakes. "They need a major body of studio work, a high-profile performing schedule and the depth of musical knowledge to put together an interesting mix of home favourites. Given this criteria, Satoshi was an obvious choice."
