Deptford Goth

Neither hailing from London's Deptford district (he's actually from Peckham) nor particularly goth, producer Daniel Woolhouse creates vulnerable, R&B-inflected electro-pop that calls to mind the xx and James Blake.

Aiming to create music that sits "somewhere between real and synthetic," the art school graduate debuted in late 2010 with the single Real Love Fantasy, which set electronically tweaked vocals adrift on blurry synths and a spare beat. After signing to Merok Records, Woolhouse released the more serious-sounding, streamlined Youth II EP in October 2011. Deptford Goth's first full-length, Life After Defo, arrived in early 2013. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
