Deathwatch Asia

Deathwatch Asia

Profile:
In 2013, the label officially changed name to Digital World Audio, reflecting its new global positioning and distribution within the industrial music scene.

Based in Osaka, DWA exists to support and promote the developing industrial and gothic underground scene in Japan: both within Japan itself, and internationally.

Since the success of the groundbreaking compilation album 'Dark Waters' in 2006, DWA has been engaged in the production of ever-more beautifully packaged releases by the finest acts working within the gothic and industrial genres in Japan. And since 2008, DWA has been working with a selection of top overseas partners (Infacted, Black Rain/NoiTekk etc) to further stimulate the Japanese scene by making the music of the finest foreign artists available on domestic release - music which has traditionally only been available in Japan on hard-to-obtain import.

This label WAS once a really good and famous JP label for Electro Industrial music like EBM/Dark Electro/Futurepop and so on.
Or just Gothic Electro Music in general. They had their main breakthrough from 2009-2013.
I always loved its limited Japanese editions and bought quite a lot there.
They also brought some of the most talented acts ever out.

Reaxion Guerrilla, Nitro/Noise, Cyferdyne, Terrorkode, SIN DNA, BlakOPz, Detroit Diesel. All those are in fact between my favorite artists of all time. Yeah, by now there are some more like Sirus, Ruinizer or Seraphim System but honestly I can't do that much with them anymore. They are not really Industrial. More like they use Industrial as a side element in their music.
Nearly none of the named artists are with DWA anymore. And there is a good reason. I would say the label started to go downhill in 2013. They also changed their name which was the first noticeable thing. They are now Digital World Audio. Dont ask me why they would even change it. But many of the artists weren't happy with the label anymore. Because of certain reasons. Good reasons, believe me. They left the label by now anyway. I'm not pulling this out of my hair. People who take a proper look on the label will see that some of the very big and quality names are no longer there. I have actually contacts and know why exactly those artists left DWA. There are nearly no good artists left and the limited Japanese Editions which are licensed from other labels are also no longer produced. Shame. The artist rooster reminds more of a mainstream Electronic rooster by now. More Dubstep and Hardcore or general Electronics than anything that would have to do with Gothic. Or how do they call it? "Swaggrotech"? Jesus Christ, seriously? Acts like Ruinizer or Seraphim System have not much to do with Industrial... Yeah, they are not bad but definitely not mine and nothing what that Label stood for once.

Shame. And thats how a great label goes downhill. I personally cant do much with the label anymore.
Im still following many of the artists that left DWA. There are many extremely talented ones.
DWA still has some good artists though. Like Terrorkode, BlakOPz or Cyferdyne.
However, I'm not entirely sure if all those are still signed to DWA.
This label is still good anyway but lets just say that it was a lot better once...
