System 7 // Mirror System
System 7 take their audience on a journey, stretching dance music to the limits with astounding depth and richness to their sound. Mirror System is their chill-out and more downtempo sister project.
At Southampton 1865 on August 24th they will be performing a special long 2hr set starting with some chilled Mirror System tracks and building up to full power System 7!
Well known for his solo albums, his work with Gong and his record production of artists like Simple Minds, guitarist Steve Hillage and his synthesizer playing partner Miquette Giraudy have been performing live techno as System 7 for more than 25 years.
Café Seven, their brilliantly received new album released in June last year, mixes 5 up tempo System 7 tunes with 5 tracks more chilled Mirror System tracks, and features a System 7 collaboration with Marcus Henriksson (Minilogue / Son Kite) on ‘Million Suns’ and a Mirror System collaboration with Ajja on ‘Smooth Operator’.
With many previous albums and club singles to their credit, System 7 have worked with a long list of other outstanding collaborators, including Detroit luminaries Derrick May and Carl Craig, Paul Oakenfold, Laurent Garnier, The Orb, Jam El Mar, Son Kite among others. System 7’s club singles have had big hit remixes from the likes of Richie Hawtin, James Holden, Dubfire and Liquid Soul.
Having been instrumental in bringing the first official dance music stage to Glastonbury, System 7 have a richly deserved reputation as a festival band par excellence, who can lift events to a exhilarating climax.
