System 7

Miquette Giraudy, Steve Hillage

UK-based techno and ambient outfit System 7 was formed by Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy in 1990. Both had previously been key members
of the pioneering psychedelic space rock collective "Gong" in the seventies, and Hillage also released a string of solo LP's including the hugely
influential ambient LP "Rainbow Dome Music" When the underground dance music movement exploded in the UK at the end of the 80's Hillage
and Giraudy decided to fully embrace the new wave of electronic music, and that is where System 7 began. However,.rather than simply being a duo,
System 7 has sought to maintain the project by choosing a very dynamic range of collaborators to work with. and the results of those collaborations have produced some of the very best electronic dance music releases over the last three decades. They have worked with such luminary artists as Derrick May, Alex Paterson (of The Orb), Carl Craig and Laurent Garnier. Plus many more.

Highly proficient programmers and mixers, System 7 are also one of the few ambient/techno acts to employ the guitar.
