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.
