Name: Keaton Anthony Carelse
The Spoken Word
The music loving madman as he put it is a king of his time and an underrated gem with the eye for brilliance. A man behind a mask who has taken his Grimehouse persona and isolated it to give rise an entity all on its own. Grimehouse was and still is one of the few pieces of SA music that can be regarded as a culturally significant vision and has a cult following stretching to all ends of South Africa and rightfully so. He has taken the “man behind the mask” ideology and ran with it way ahead of the curve… with the music movement on seeing masked artists rising to the occasion over the last 12-24 months. There is passion in everything he does and with people still raving about Magnum Opus… we are excited to see what follows.
