live on Resonance FM
Bass-heavy jams from Japan's Takeaki Maruyama on London's Resonance FM
Few Japanese music producers are pushing the envelope as much as Takeaki Maruyama aka Goth Trad. An avid collector of vinyl and CDs since his early years, Takeaki has been making electronic music since the age of 19, releasing on prestigious labels in his own country and, more recently, on UK-based dubstep imprints. Indeed, the current incarnation of his sound has found great affinity with the fast-growing global dubstep audience — and his place within the scene's higher ranks is set to be cemented this coming weekend when he becomes the first artist to perform live (ie a non-vinyl set) at the legendary DMZ night in Brixton, London.
To accompany Laurent Fintoni's lengthy interview with Goth Trad, we're chuffed as chips to host this blistering live set, recorded on Resonance FM on 21 September 2006 for the station's Clear Spot show.
