‘Avatar-band’ CellarHouse have resurfaced from their particular brand of virtual reality to showcase their forth single from their soon to be released album, Hard Times. Already Hyped by dance supremos, BeatPort, this track is going to cause more than a few ripples on the darkwave DJ turntables.
All We Need is a dark brooding slice of lo-fi, downtempo DarkWave which really gets under the skin of the listener. Rasping modulating bass synths conflict with distorted melodic tones and minimalistic beats to allow Fahia’s vocal the space it needs to punch home a darkly reassuring(?) and repeated phrase, ‘all we need is right here’. Produced by the former grandmaster of break-beat production Jezz Wright, this tune from the cellar-dwellers of East Anglia and beyond (other members are from New York and Spain!) does not disappoint!
Personally, I found this to be a track that you must listen to repeatedly. Now, whether that’s because I just want to hear all those melodic gems hidden in this dark slice of synthwave, or whether I’ve just been hypnotized by Fahia’s mesmerizing vocal, I’m not sure. But what I can tell you is that this track is ORIGINAL and in these days of copycat writers and producers that’s really saying something. Pinning them down to an interview is near impossible, as is seeing them play live, as they prefer to promote themselves in the shadows of the metaverse and so far, I’ve only found them (along with their disciples) at Festival Land in Decentraland. However, for us it’s the music that matters and, on that score, get yourself over to wherever you stream or download your music from and check this one out. Warning: It’s not for the average mainstream popster but if you venture forth, do turn it up loud!
Released through the TrueBlockhouse label/Cygnus Music: 17th January 2022
