Eric Galaviz and Brian Varga, better known as the DJ / Producer duo Hipp-E and Halo, joined forces 15 years ago after realizing they shared many common musical interests. The H Foundation was born. Here and now in 2014 they are set to release their album Passage, a collection of their finest moments from 1999-2004, through DJ Sneaks imprint Magnetic Recordings on 14th July. Passage showcases the dub-influenced house that made H Foundation, Hipp-E and Halo tracks stand out from the crowd back in the early to mid-2000s and saw them regarded as pioneers of the periods dominant West Coast sound. Originally catapulted to fame with exposure from UK Legends Pete Tong and Carl Cox, they held down a long-standing residency at Fabric in London and worked with respected labels like Moody, Siesta, NRK and Soma, for whom they released their famed debut album Environments. The 1999-2004 span represented on Passage includes an influential period from their earlier days of collaboration, which spawned some of their most influential tracks like Here Da Sound as well as high profile remixes for the likes of Silicone Soul. The 13-track package is offered up fully re-mastered, with many tracks available digitally for the first time to both avid fans and those discovering H Foundation for the first time.
