Tokyo On Air: Goth-Trad

February 28, 2012

The Japanese producer pushing the boundaries on noise and dubstep delivers an all out Goth-Trad experience for our city mix series

  • Text by Terence Teh

Tokyo's crowned prince of forward thinking and progressive dubstep Goth-Trad is the artist that Kode9 describes as: “A one-man army mutating the UK hardcore continuum in Japan.” Earlier this month on DEEP MEDi Musik, Goth-Trad aka Takeaki Maruyama released his new album entitled, "New Epoch" led by an otherworldly dub handle anthem "Babylon Fall" featuring the legendary voice of Max Romeo.

Goth-Trad's music has been explained as a warping black hole that envelopes his wide range of influences and past inspirations - from abstract electronica to noise, punk, rave and his signature opus-styled dub. For an all out Goth-Trad experience, lose yourself in this new exclusive mix for Satellite Voices On Air.
