System 7/Mirror System announce their dual album release ‘Café Seven’



Pivotal and enduring System 7 deliver the latest evolution of their dance floor sound alongside the chilled downtempo grooves of their sister Mirror System project on ‘Café Seven’.

Inspired by the acid house explosion, System 7 are one of the UK’s foremost unique Live techno bands, hailed for their impressive earth-moving Festival sets,and work with some of electronic music’s true innovators from The Orb to Richie Hawtin who remixed their incredible ‘Alpha Wave’ classic.

Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy’s combine System 7 and Mirror System tracks this album is 10 tracks of atmospheric tech beats and soundscapes, including original productions as well as a couple remixes in both guises. ‘Café Seven’ will be released on vinyl, CD and digital on A-Wave Records from June 2018.

“What I don’t realise is that I’m also about to witness one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen; System 7 aka Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy. This insanely talented couple who are in their mid 60’s were one of the first techno groups to play live back in 1990. Hillage plays an electronic guitar to lucid effect which is complimented by a grand repertoire of samples which Giraudy takes into overdrive with her arsenal of synthesisers. The journey takes those lucky enough to be in attendance through divine ambient, experimental and psychedelic magic for 1.5 hours, although it feels like an eternity. I’ve never heard or experienced anything like it and I’m left feeling total joyful bliss by the end and life literally couldn’t be any better.” Our review of System 7 at Noisily Festival 2017

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
