Deptford Goth

Deptford Goth – UNION

March 11, 2013

Whoops. What’s in a name eh? Not as much as I was expecting, it turns out.

You’d think, with a surname like mine (see above), that I’d have learned not to judge someone by their moniker. Alas, I haven’t. I had assumed Deptford Goth would be some sort of ultra-dark, tuneless, techno-step. I thought I’d hate him. I was totally wrong, as usual.

This south-London residing producer, Daniel Woolhouse, makes electronica which is absolutely drenched with humanity. There’s no separation of man and machine here; beats, synths, noises are all so clearly the product of a human touch and far from being tuneless it’s melodic and, well, it’s totally lovely. Take a listen to UNION:

That’s him, Deptford Goth, with the jolly brightly-coloured balloons. In a field. Not in a dirty alleyway or warehouse, dressed in an angular black leather smock. Not what I was expecting at all. That yearning melody is a keeper, man I’m glad I gave him a listen! Give Life After Defo a go too why don’t you:

Splendid. These are both taken from his debut Life After Defo LP which is released next Monday 18th March. Yes please.

Follow Deptford Goth at his official site and on Facebook and the Twitter. Pre-order your copy of Life After Devo on CD and vinyl.
