Eric Galaviz (Denver, CO) and Brian Varga (San Diego,CA), better known as the DJ / Producer duo Hipp-E and Halo, joined forces 13 years ago after realizing they shared many common musical interests. Even their earliest days of collaboration as H Foundation yielded some of the most influential tracks like ‘Here Dis Sound’ and ‘Tonight’ from their famed ‘Environments’ LP.
H Foundation quickly became internationally known for their unique dub-influenced sound that transcended the house genre. What followed was a list of accolades that put them at the top of the heap as both DJs and Producers. Catapulted to fame with exposure from UK Legends Pete Tong and Carl Cox, a long standing residency at Fabric (London) and work with respected labels like Moody, Siesta, NRK and Soma have kept them in high demand on the touring front and in the studio.
After years of collaboration with great success, the duo decided to shift their focus to their individual pursuits of family life and other personal life goals. Now, reinvigorated and inspired by the very interests that brought them together years ago, Hipp-E and Halo are once again creating sophisticated ground-breaking sounds that will influence the direction of organic house & techno in the years to come. With releases expected on Halo’s own label Surface Recordings as well as Tsuba, One Records, Leftroom, and Soma Records, the bar is raised yet again.
