Biography

In 1999 avex organized a talent contest called avex dream 2000. 3 girls, Matsumuro Mai (松室麻衣), Tachibana Kana (橘佳奈) and Hasebe Yu (長谷部優), won the audition and they became the group dream. The group debuted on January 1, 2000, with the single Movin' on, which made it into the Oricon top 15 with a mature image and non-cheesy eurobeats. Their next few singles all ended up in the same territory, failing to break the top 10 until their sixth single, My Will, made it to #6 at the end of 2000 (though their next single peaked at #36). Things were considered more or less over for the group when Mai, who wrote most of their song lyrics, decided to leave the group in 2002. avex decided to hold more auditions for a replacement, but ended up with 6 new girls, though many saw this as an attempt to emulate the success of top girl-group Morning Musume. The new 8-girl group "re-debuted" in 2003 with MUSIC IS MY THING. Currently, the group is down to 7 members, following Ai Risa's graduation to solo work in March of 2004.

On June 27th, 2007, dream was "reborn" as the dance/chorus group DRM in an attempt to shed their image as idols.
