Hataken has been an electronic music producer, performer since the mid 90’s. His musical style employs ambient chilled out grooves using synthesizers to span multiple genres that create a unique style and psychedelic feeling. Hataken has performed many festivals including Boom 2012 (7 hours live show with analog vintage rigs), Ozora festival 2013&2014, Sonica festival 2013&1014, Sound Wave(2009&2010), SXSW(2008) and more. Hataken released his solo album “A Prana Planet” on Matsuri Digital Chill in Nov. 2017 for 5 years from last album “Ascension”(TKG music)
Shifting from vintage analogue synth performances to modular synthesizers, Hataken has become an icon in the Japanese modular scene. In 2013 he organized the Tokyo Festival of Modular; a yearly event that showcases international modular synthesizer technology and artist performances. His goal is to foster the next generation of modular synthesizer music.
Hataken has taken part in many collaborative projects. Wåveshåper is a project with Greg Hunter which produced an album and series of live performances in Europe. He is an organizer of the alternative culture underground platform ZEN ZEN.

About Hataken:
Blurring the lines between artist and geek, Hataken is a man-machine
hybrid who’s ingenious approach to the modular construction of sound has
made a profound contribution to the evolution of electronic music.
The artist has traversed the dynamics of electronic sound production from
several perspectives that challenge the generic construction of the socalled
four-beat-bar.
His dedication to the modular approach has led to several criticallyacclaimed
works and collaborations with pioneering artists who work
across a multiverse of musical genres.
His production output is a sonic tapestry encompassing ‘found sound’
experimental electronica, interspersed with Fibonacci euclidean sequences,
circadian rhythms and of course analog synthesis.
With his experimentation of modular sound production, he continues to
fascinate both music listeners and creators alike.
