It’s been a little long while since our last podcast from Last Japan, but by god it’s worth the wait! Initially, I wasn’t totally sold on Trap, but Aquadrop (whose “Landscapes…” EP on Seclusiasis sent me giddy recently) has put together just under half an hour of some of the finest Trap cuts going, blending them effortlessly with dubstep and even some trance.
Of course, the staple remixes and bootlegs are all here – Azealia Banks being the prime example – as well as some rather unexpected bootlegs of Ellie Goulding, Hot Chip and… Darude?? It’s pretty out there, but Aquadrop’s risk-taking pays dividends as he slips effortlessly between styles, always keeping you guessing and not a single rewind in sight.
Like I said above, his ‘Synthesized Landscapes From The Future’ EP was one of the highlights of the increasingly fading summer that rocked bass fans all over the world with its room-filling subs and mind-expanding synth work.
Anyway, another blithering. Check out the Aquadrop podcast at the bottom and then start buying out this guy’s back catalogue. You won’t be disappointed!
