Houndstooth will release Pariah's debut album next month, titled Here From Where We Are. It will be the artist’s first release in six years and is said to mark "a natural progression in his sound across nine interconnected pieces."
Arthur Cayzer was a relative latecomer to dance music. He grew up in various hardcore and punk bands before moving to London and being swept away by dubstep. After just six months messing around making his own stuff on Logic, he drew the attention of R&S, and over the next two years, he released three EPs with the Belgian label.
Since then, Cayzer has continued to DJ and play live with Blawan as Karenn. Musically, though, we're told he's felt he’s been pressuring himself into making the music people expected, rather than music that was an honest reflection of himself. It was only by taking a step back to analyze the music that has always resonated with him that gave him a renewed confidence in his work. After one track was finished, an album of coherent pieces naturally followed.
We're also told that Although Here From Where We Are is inspired by a series of personal reflections, responses, and reactions, though Cayzer is keen for people to process it in their own way, free from interference.
