"HRK is Haruka, a seventeen year old Japanese female singer, who is just breaking into the Japanese 'Pop' scene. Her producers approached Third Ear to find three 'cool' remixers from outside Japan, to each produce a 12". No original version of the tracks will be released, only a strictly limited edition remix with full vocal and instrumental versions. Only 1000 copies of each 12 are being produced. First up is Thomas Fehlmann with 'System Error' (JOINT A:001), a pumping dubby techno remix. The track is a classic Thomas Fehlmann dancefloor record: grooving, sunny, trippy, feel-good electronic music that is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the most jaded clubber. Thomas draws directly on reggae dancehall for his dub sensibilities. Thomas Fehlmann's dubs are always sweet, light, and soulful, but with plenty of kick. Haruka's plaintive voice sits in the track perfectly, making an intriguing instrument in the mix. Whether the listener understands the Japanese lyric or not, the cadences of the voice over all three of the 12s draws the listener in."
