Japan based music artist Hiroshi Watanabe has many sound talents displayed in his various guises within the electronic genre. He began out under names Nite System + Quadra while creating tech house, hard techno, & progressive trance forms. Between 2001 - 2002, more focused approaches took shape through 2 new masks. 1.] Starting his own label NORM with fellow partner Takehiko Kitahara, he released a numbered series as Tread for ambient, down-tempo rhythms. 2.] Kaito on Germany's Kompakt label where he's most well-known for deep, dub housed, dance music. A truly dedicated musician!
