Here From Where We Are - Pariah
Houndstooth is pleased to announce the signing of Pariah for a debut full length, "Here From Where We Are", due for release on 13th July 2018. The artist’s first release in six years marks a natural progression in his sound across nine interconnected pieces. Arthur Cayzer was a relative late comer to electronic music. He grew up in various hardcore and punk bands before moving to London and being swept away by dubstep. After just six months making his own material on Logic, Pitchfork coverage piqued the interest of the legendary R&S, and over the next two years he released three EPs with the Belgian label. Each one showed subtle evolution and further established Pariah on the international scene. Since then, Arthur has continued to DJ round the world and play live with Blawan as Karenn. Musically, though, he’s been adrift. With countless unfinished projects cluttering his hard drive, he felt he’d pressured 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 analyse the music that has always resonated with him — and where, how, when and in what context it did, that gave him a renewed confidence in his work. After one track was finished, an album of coherent pieces naturally followed. Although "Here From Where We Are" is inspired by a series of very personal reflections, responses and reactions, Arthur is keen for people to process it in their own way, free from interference.
