Midnight In A Perfect World: Carpainter

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Carpainter is the alias of Tokyo-based DJ/producer Taimei Kawai, one of the most exciting young artists representing the fertile Japanese electronic music scene. A co-founder of beloved Japanese net-label Trekkie Trax, Carpainter's colorful, high-energy, cutting-edge club tracks have been capturing ears all over the world, finding homes on Trekkie Trax as well as Maltine Records, Top Billin Music, Hot Mom USA, Heka Trax, and Ryan Hemsworth's Secret Songs label. His mix for Midnight in a Perfect World mix comes ahead of his next release, the "PAM!!!" single coming out August 23rd on Trekkie Trax, and it's a proper showcase of his distinctive style, fusing numerous UK-centric club styles -- house, garage, dubstep, grime, bassline -- with emerging Japanese club influences for a refreshing, playful, exploratory international flavor.
