HKE (aka David Russo) is a British music producer and founder of an influential experimental music label, Dream Catalogue.


Mostly known as the member of the renowned 2814 duo, HKE felt under the spotlight when both him and Telepath テレパシー能力者 (Luke Laurila) released their second album together, titled 新しい日の誕生 (Atarashī hi no tanjō). Prior to this, HKE's music profile saw the expansion of David's music vocabulary through the means of inspiration from movies, like Blade Runner and artists, such as Burial and Vangelis and into a futuristic cyberpunk sound that became more original & fleshed out as the time went by. In 2014, HKE was already establishing himself through releases, such as 浪漫的夢想 and 2047. In spite of very obvious themes, references and influences, the albums still manage to be original in their sort of way and lead the listener into the amusing narrative of the realm this music sets itself in.

While not a necessarily vaporwave music producer per se, his works as Hong Kong Express and as 1/2 of 2814 proved to be important releases that solidified his importance & musical achievements in few music scenes, including vaporwave. His initial project, Subaeris, is his earliest documented music experiment. The project itself helped lay a foundation for a sound, a lot of which can be heard in his much more notorious music projects, later in his discography. The project name, HKE, is an abbreviation of earlier moniker, Hong Kong Express.


HKE is known for his large discography and a big variety of different music aliases and side projects. His most notable ones are:
