We have watched the rise and rise of GRIMEHOUSE from the early days of his project in 2012 to where he is now. A name that has pushed all boundaries within the electronic music scene and climbed his way to the top with a lot of hard work, high energy sets, constant chart topping releases and the most humble persona to go along with that. We couldn’t be happy to announce the launch of GRIMEHOUSE‘s second album ‘Meraki’ released via David Gresham Records.
Keaton Carelse started his music career many years ago but adapted the Alias “GRIMEHOUSE” in 2012. Since then, he has received recognition for his productions and has gradually been breaking the genre chain and developed his own unique style of bass music which has gained him a following of loyal bass lovers around the world. His Debut Album “Magnum Opus” launched on the 1st of March 2016 and was met with an overwhelmingly positive response. Grimehouse has performed at every major festival in the country & topped music charts around the world.
GRIMEHOUSE’S new album “MERAKI” is a body of work, created during isolation through the Coronavirus pandemic and not knowing when musicians could perform live music again and what the future holds for musicians & their careers. For GRIMEHOUSE this album was a huge burden on his shoulders of what was expected of him in terms of his music style. He teamed up with Nasrene, Amy Jones, Dream Demon & Hailo to name a few to tap into the zeitgeist and express the feeling of the times that the world is going through at the moment
Grimehouse’s “MERAKI”, has been released on the 15th of January 2021 through David Gresham Records worldwide.
“I decided to experiment and play with sounds and styles that spoke to me instead of making music only for clubs / radio etc. I hope somebody can relate to at least one song on the album. I am highly inspired by classical music, and the whole album is a fusion of Classic, Orchestral and Modern Electronic Sounds. Sometimes a large brass trombone or a low cello can hit as hard as a filthy bassline, I’d love for this album to show that. I had fallen in love with every collaborators talent on this album and each one was chosen by me for a reason, I could not have done it without each and every one of them” – GRIMEHOUSE
