Japan's Goth-Trad, whose been making music since 1998 and started composing dubstep in 2006, has emerged from the Japanese electronic scene in the last few years as one of the most arresting, unique artists from his generation. Whether he's playing with samplers, keyboards or even self-made instruments, Goth-Trad always aims to expand his creative reaches by discovering different sounds, styles and structures. Aptly nicknamed ‘The Sound Originator,’ Goth-Trad is revered by sound system heads around the globe for his distinct, abstract and ever-evolving musical personality that garners influences from a vast array of genres, from dubstep and reggae to jungle and grime.
UK-based Skeptical has been responsible for producing some of the most damaging yet delicate tracks within the current drum & bass scene. Since first making a mark in the scene with his 2011 Ingredients Records release, Blue Eyes EP, Skeptical has unleashed a slew of impeccable releases on highly esteemed imprints such as Dispatch, Metalheadz, Soul:r and Exit Records. Equally holding down the drum and bass end of the spectrum is Seattle producer Homemade Weapons. Homemade Weapons evolved out of the Baltimore/DC jungle scene and has since carved out quite a reputation for himself for his edgy, militant beats.
