Keeping up with the Stripped Down Record's love of all things Austrian, yeah! Ken Hayakawa is from Salzburg (his mother is Japanese) and here's two brand new tracks.  

Towards the end of last year we loved his two remixes of Parallea's 'Waypoint': the original remix was very much for the dancefloor whilst the 'Auhof' starts like a dub of sorts before it fully "lets go".

Well it's about time that Ken released two of his own tracks now and both show his formal/classical training as a pianist, especially 'Mute Air' that has trademark minimal techno feel to it.

'Unity' is the opposite as it's BIG synth and bang that he somehow unites; solidarity Ken.

I first came across Ken with a promo back in 2009 on Musik Gewinnt Freunde (MGF) with 'Outside The Walls' (Ed. Sounds very 'Funeral In Berlin') and he's been releasing great tracks like this ever since on Schönbrunner Perlen, Trapez, The DJ Hell Experience and this is no exception.

Austria is the place to be?
