goth-trad: "departure", "anti grid", and hatcha tv interview



Above is the second track, "Departure" from Japan's premier dubstep producer Goth Trad's upcoming album release, "New Epoch". Below is the first official music video from that album, produced by The SRK. Taking the dubstep genre beyond it's limited boundaries and making this kind of music long before such trendy genre names were invented, I hear traces of Detroit techno, Aphex Twin and traditional Japanese percussion in his tracks. I think this guy's finally getting the recognition he deserves and I'm looking forward to the new CD this month, and to seeing where he takes his sound next. Also, check out the short, amusing interview with this humble sculptor of sound, brought to you by Hatcha TV, below.
