The future of Japanese club music rests assuredly in good hands. Since 2012 we have worked on 3 different projects (and some) with the finest Japanese club crew, Trekkie Trax. There has been 2 fine compilations and a solo ep release from the most productive member of the crew, Carpainter. Now we’re happy to drop his second solo with some extra special remixes to go with it, Japan, Scandinavia and US together.
Moving in the territory of garage, juke, trap and bass music, Carpainter has developed a very distinguished sound for himself. Keeping dance floors lit with his non-compromising and challenging tracks has earned him the mantle of one of the new school bass music chieftains in Japan.
Since his first Top Billin release, Carpainter has been in high demand, releasing singles & remixes on labels like Lucky Me, Activia Benz, Maltine Records, L2S Recordings, and even an album on Trekkie Trax. His tracks have also been featured regularly on BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM, NTS Radio, Block FM and on many more forward-thinking medias alike, and DJ support has been overwhelming whatever he decides to put out.
The remixes in this pack come from talented newcomer and Nest HQ affiliate GRRL, our own Baltic beat maker NiklavZ, and label manager Heikki’s jungle alter-ego DJ Pinball. Carpainter and Trekkie Trax’s journey is just starting and we’re happy again to be part of their constant ascension in the world on club and bass music.
