A unique producer with a unique style, Goth-Trad has emerged from the Japanese electronic scene in the last decade as one of the most arresting artists from his generation. ‘The Sound Originator,’ Goth-Trad creates remarkable dance music with an abstract approach. With New Epoch marking yet another milestone in Goth-Trad’s career, the Japanese one-man army - as Kode 9 once referred to him - is set to continue on his unique path. Always charting new territories while staying true to what motivates him: making good and honest music that reflects the world around him.

After the release of New Epoch, Goth-Trad embarked on his worldwide tour across Europe, US and Asia including many Festivals such as Coachella, Fuji Rock, Outlook Festival, and Lockdown (Natherlands) to name a few.
