Zipperface (Goth​-​Trad Remix)

by The Pop Group / Goth-Trad



Japan’s very own ‘Sound Originator’ Takeaki Maruyama aka Goth-Trad has produced a monumental remix of The Pop Group’s first single Zipperface from their new album Honeymoon On Mars

An indispensable ringleader in Tokyo’s dubstep scene and a prolific proponent of raw dubwise futurism Goth-Trad released his first solo record in 2004. After supporting The Mars Volta on their Japanese tour the same year, he followed his promising debut with the eclectic experimentations of 2005’s 'Mad Raver’s Dance Floor', a record which scored him international success with the enduring early dubstep classic 'Back to Chill'. His fourth European tour in 2006 saw him link up with Mala of Digital Mystikz at the seminal dubstep night FWD>> and a subsequent appearance on the renowned Deep Medi Musik label represented a watershed moment. A flurry of releases on the likes of Skud Beats and Soul Jazz Records as well as appearances at DMZ and support from The Bug, Kode9 and Mary Anne Hobbs subsequently established his place in the continuum of contemporary bass music.

On his reworking of Zipperface, Goth-Trad takes the original into infernal depths and draws out oppressive levels of tension infusing Dennis Bovell’s prior mixing desk manipulations with sparse soundsystem brutality.
