Café Seven, the most recent album, expertly mixes 5 more-chilled tracks from Mirror System with 5 more-up tempo System 7 tunes, and features a System 7 collaboration with Marcus Henriksson (Minilogue / Son Kite) on ‘Million Suns' and a Mirror System collaboration with top trance artist and guitarist Ajja on ‘Smooth Operator’.
The album also features some high profile remixes by Steve and Miquette including Sudo’s 'Sensation (System 7 remix)’ and Joujouka’s ‘And Justice Killed (System 7 remix)’ and a Mirror System remix of Six Degrees Records artists Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society on ‘Cloudface (Mirror System Remix)’.
With a seamless blend of atmospheres and beats, Café Seven demonstrates how Steve and Miquette can express their deep artistic spirit through different genres, maintaining throughout their warm and distinctive psychedelic sound.
