System 7

There is no need for introduction of respected electronic music pioneers and innovators System 7:- Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy . The duo's musical collaboration started in 70's when they played in the psychedelic rock band Gong. After Hillage released masterpiece ambient albums in 80's, System 7 was formed in 1991 as their dancefloor project.
 Their style hovers between trance, techno and progressive house -with unique spacey character that is deeply psychedelic without being typical psy-trance- and added element of Steve's highly specialised techno guitar. System 7's music also has a distinctive ambient element, which they've recently developed into a separate downtempo project called Mirror System.For more information : http://www.a-wave.com

Wata

Wata is a new producer from Japan whom Hypo=espresso Records especially proud to introduce to the world electronic scene . Wata Igarashi, a multi-talented composer, guitarist, DJ and recording artist, spent his childhood absorbing the cultural eclecticism of Tokyo, London, and Madrid. At fifteen, he began his music career in Madrid as a punk-guitarist for a “Skate-Rock” band called F.O.D., frequently playing at skate championships and live-houses and getting featured in Spanish Skate magazines.

After his return to Tokyo in 1992, he shifted his musical focus to less convention-following free-improvisation and jazz, and formed an experimental instrumental band called Indigo Cage Airlines, with whom he has been performing in and around Tokyo for 15 years. Recently, he has been directing his diverse musical energies toward the dance floor.  Of late, he’s also been producing some distinctive, groovy tech-house tracks.
The music he produces is made up of a myriad of elements from his diverse musical background.  He seamlessly runs the genre gamut, merging andre-shaping earlier influences of punk with more sophisticated free-form jazz and sharpening his chops on more cutting-edge, deep techno groove and electronic beats.

Ree.K

In terms of artistry, this lady knows no borders and is, in a positive sense un-categorizable. When DJ'ing or composing she treads her own terrain. She is a queen of her own un-touched planet styled from eclectic musical elements that she instinctively feels she can fuse into her own super-dimension. An astoundingly beautiful electronic patchwork quilt of sound is Ree.K. Chronologically, her resume reads... music career begins in '84, active as a DJ from '92, her original party organization [Space Gathering] was set up in '97 and an electronic music band [Kinocosmo] formed in '98. She released her own DJ mix CD [Cubism] in 2001 and started her own label in 2002 called [Hypnodisk], and released second/third mix CD [Alpha] [Omega] in 2006. Ree.K will never stop pushing herself further and deeper into the many dimensions of music.
