The duo will release a compilation of their singles from the '90s next month on A-Wave.
Over a span of nearly two decades, Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy have produced reams of trancey, guitar-enhanced club tracks as System 7. Throughout their heyday in the mid-'90s they championed a sound that was dually inspired by ambient acts like The Orb and techno artists like Derrick May and Carl Craig. Classics brings together 12 songs from this period (1992-2000), many of which were previously available only on vinyl.
Though Hillage and Gaudy have always been at the core of System 7, the project was always very welcome to collaboration, as Classics clearly shows. Guest appearances come from May, Laurent Garnier and Alex Paterson of The Orb, while Craig, Carl Cox and The Advent all appear for remixes. The digital compilation will be released exclusively through Beatport on December 13th, with a wide release on January 10th. Word has it System 7 are on track to put out another studio album in May of next year, though details on that project are still scarce.
