Last year immediately after the release of his new album two of the pieces from it reached No.1 and No.2 on the Spotify Viral 50 Japan. In 2019, all of the pieces he released each month were introduced in the Spotify playlist and his range of activity expanded worldwide as his work was ranked in the Taiwan viral chart-we are speaking about music producer Kotaro Saito. His work "Cactus" released in May also featured his friend and fellow songwriter as well as actor Asahi Uchida. The cactus the two discovered when they went out together served as the motif for the session and set the tone for the cheerful track written by Kotaro Saito. The groovy track is a fusion of the analog synthesizer tone Kotaro Saito is good at and the tasteful vintage guitar refrain of Asahi Uchida to achieve an urban, chill electro piece. The "Lifestyle Music" he is advocating is not just for listening but also for providing a boost to everyday situations. The new piece "Cactus" has a lifting beat that's great for times when you want to take it easy and relax, like when waking up in the morning on a holiday, enjoying the beach in early summer, or watching the sun set from a café.
