We’re looking forward to having old friend of the family Oliver Ho aka Raudive back in Tokyo again! Last time we had him over @ UNIT the place went off, Oliver has a really strong and loyal following in Tokyo so we can expect the same this time, if not more! Oliver is an artist in every sense of the word, along side his productions already well known under his Raudive moniker, he is also part of an experimental guitar / drum machine / vocal driven band named ‘The eyes in the Heat’ and has also recently started a new record label ‘WIRES’ which draws together the different strands from techno & minimal to house to ambient & experimental! Oliver will also be joined behind the decks by some familiar faces from the ‘Phonika’ team!

From the beginning on Blueprint records Oliver Ho has explored techno and house in its many different styles, ranging from the deep tribal sounds of the "Listening To The Voice Inside" album, to the dark abstract noises of his Veil album, to the funkier house sounds of his Birdland project. All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive. The sound of raudive takes the percussion of his earlier releases and mutates it into a slower deep sound, fusing the funk of house and the electronics of techno. The debut record on Klang Elektronik, "Audio ep" gained attention from dj’s such as Riacrdo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin.
This initial release was followed by "Here", a warped techno anthem with the strange vocals of a child, heavily played by Sven Vath.
Since then Raudive has appearanced on Klang, Music Man, Pokerflat, We Are, Cocoon and Nummer.
