As Takaaaki says, this is not typical dubstep. His work evolves to a new form of dubstep, with a heavy, dark, aggressive side; it retains the bass and various BPMs, but some harmonies and even hints of melodies take all these sounds to a new level, creating a mutant dubstep that hypnotizes the listener, evoking lunar seas and snowy landscapes. But be aware that with Takaaaki decadence and craziness are never far. As a high school student, Takaaaki (Ueda Takaaki) was influenced by hardcore music. At 20, he went to New York where he discovered electronic music; he began making music in 2005, while wandering through the UK, Germany, and the Czech Republic, where he experienced club music. In 2006 he started performing live, particularly at Noon in Osaka, as a member of Depth. His heavy, hypnotic, eccentric sounds have had a massive impact on the Japanese dubstep scene. All tracks composed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Takaaaki, 2006-2010. Graphic design by Frédéric Tacer, 2011.
