M. Fukuda:

M. Fukuda is techno track maker from Japan. He was born in 1978 in Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. He formed Spiraltone with SERi in the year 2009.

As one of Japan´s new leading underground artists, alongside fellow Japanese peers like Q´Hey and A.Mochi, he is helping to define a new school Techno vibe in the land of the rising sun. His tracks are meticulously made, packed with powerful dancefloor energy and polished to the highest degree.

Tom Hades:

Tom Hades started to discover and experiment with electronic music when listening to DAF, Kraftwerk, Front 242 etc. At the age of 15 he bought his first keyboard, the famous Casio CZ-101 and transformed his game-computer, Amiga 500, into his first DAW. Quickly he got experienced with MIDI-integration and sampling functions, which gave him even more urge for buying/selling new material as addition to his current setup.

During the same period, his old school friend, RedHead, was co-producing with Marco Bailey. He got in contact with Marco too which led them in 2000 to their first co release. And this was the start of a big period of releases, included the anthem of I Love Techno in 2001.

Have a look at the discography for the complete overview. In the same year as I Love Techno Tom started to do live performances. He got more & more experienced and started to play all over the world.

His live performance was fully appreciated in countries like Spain, Colombia, Brazil, France, Poland, Sweden, Mexico, Japan, Austria, Italy, Norway, Ireland and on many known festivals like Nature One, I Love Techno, City Parade etc.

In the first period of 2002, Tom also produced his first solo release. In the next years he continued to produce tracks on his own as well as his co-production with Marco on respected labels like MB Elektronics, Drumcode, Bedrock, Tronic, Excentric Musik, 1605, Pornographic Recordings, Rhythm Convert(ed), Lupp etc.

In 2004, they decided it was time to take the next step, start a label. And so Rhythm Convert was born. Initially, the purpose of the label was to give an opportunity to new talents to release their stuff. After a long break of releasing Tom restarted the label again in 2010. Many big artists already signed to the label so loads & loads to come in the future!
