However, as Sato was the first IDM artist I ever heard, this has been pretty major news for me. One of his releases was a remastered version of LSD and Remixes, which sounds way better than the original release we've had since 1998 (and includes new music videos). It also contains one of my favorite μ-Ziq tracks.
Actually, the first thing I ever posted on my Soundcloud page was a remix of Funky Solution. At the time, I still believed the rumors that he had died.
