HAILING ALL THE WAY FROM THE U.K. PRESENTING DJ YOUNGSTA!
Youngsta should need little introduction. One of the figureheads of dubstep since the very beginning, resident at scene-defining club night FWD>>, and the DJ who first played some of the genre’s most-loved anthems, he continues to be a hugely active figure in dubstep’s development. His weekly show on Rinse draws deep for new music, helping to expose talented new producers, and the founding ethics that defined dubstep in its early years still remain at the heart of his sets.
“The sound is just me,” he says, explaining that he’s hesitant to draw a defined line around the music he plays. “It’s Youngsta. It’s what I’ve always done. People say it’s not changed much, but you can hear progression and change definitely, it’s not the same [as it was]. It’s obviously the same vibe, it’s going to be deep.”
Youngsta was one of the first DJs to play dubstep on Rinse, alongside Hatcha and Kode9, in the early part of last decade. Since he’s borne witness to every mutation in the sound, and his shows now find music by brand new producers rubbing shoulders with Tempa artists such as J:Kenzo, Icicle and Proxima. His name is synonymous with the immersive end of the genre, something that’s run through everything he’s done over the years.
Having been involved with Rinse FM for such a long time, he says, it’s hugely rewarding to see how well-loved the station – and the music that he plays – has become. Playing at Brixton Academy especially, he says, was a huge buzz. “It was great to see that Rinse can fill a dance that big, and to be able to play such deep music on such a big scale.”
PRESENTING GOTH-TRAD (DEEP MEdi Musik) ALL THE WAY FROM TOKYO ,JAPAN.
A unique producer with a unique style, Goth-Trad (of Rebel
Familia) has emerged from the Japanese electronic scene in the last few years as one of the most arresting artists from his generation. Freely playing samplers,
keyboards and even self-made instruments, ‘The Sound Originator’ Goth-Trad creates remarkable dance music with an abstract approach.
Goth-Trad started making music in 1998, experimenting on his own at first before eventually forming the Rebel Familia unit in 2001 with Takeshi ‘Heavy’ Akimoto (ex-member of Dry & Heavy, a legendary Japanese dub and reggae act).
In the years that followed he continued to develop his own sound alongside that of Rebel Familia, giving himself diverse avenues in which to experiment with different sounds, styles and structures.
To date Goth-Trad has appeared live alongside such international and domestic artists as The Bug (Ninja Tune/Rephlex), Doc Scott (31 Recs), Digital Mystikz (DMZ), Kode 9 (Hyperdub), DEEP MEDi Crew (UK), DJ Ink (Renegade Hardware), DJ Craze, The Mars Volta, Mixologists, Limewax, DJ Krush, Ragga Twins, Mad Professor, Iration Steppas, Arto Lindsay, Toshinori Kondo, Mike Ladd, Fingathing (Ninja Tune), Buck 65, Skream (Tempa), DJ Zinc (Bingo / True Playaz), Bong Ra, Noiz Creator, DJ Baku, Boom Bip (Anticon), X&Trick, Com.A and more.
