Mayumi will be recording 'Platinum 2', a reworking of her debut single 'Platinum'. "It didn't get the exposure it deserved first time round but I think it's a good song and I want to hear it again on the radio." (Mayumi). She will be releasing 2EPs with at least 3 songs each and 'Platinum 2' will be the title track for the second EP. She is currently looking for a good engineer to work with.

The recording for the new release is now complete. The tracks are "Only A Dream", "Snowflake Beach", "Careless", "Myriad Luminescent", "Snowflake Beach2 (Cosmic version)". These were originally planned for a 4 track EP but it is thought that the tracks will be split in 2 singles.

Added Biography

24/May/2005

Mayumi will be in the studio in July to record a single.
'I'm not keen on the sound of hard disk recording and editing so I'm doing analogue recording. I have asked the engineer to use faders and not to touch computer....In the end it will be a CD, but I will try to keep things as analogue and live as possible. So right now I'm rehearsing like mad!'
