South African electronic dance music producer Grimehouse is the guest on this week’s Indaba Show with host Steven Taylor.

Grimehouse (real name Keaton Carelse) started his music career over 20 years ago performing in Cape Town nightclubs.

Now, he has recently launched his third album, Rhapsody. The album promises to be a sonic journey through the mind of one of the most innovative and boundary-pushing artists in the genre.

“We’ve got some cool features with some up and coming artists. I like to collaborate with my friends. We’ve got Pascal and Pearce and we have a collab with Jack Parrow,” he said.

“Some of it is hardcore, insane death metal sounding, and then some orchestral with just me playing a piano for three minutes straight, and then there’s some songs that will go on radio.”

While Grimehouse has a following of loyal bass lovers both locally and internationally, in the beginning of his career he started as a small Cape Town DJ and performed magic to make some extra money to kick start his business.

“I did a course in magic. I was doing magic tricks at the Spur for kids. We had to save money because you needed money to buy records if you wanted to be a DJ. So it took me like three years to collect just one set of like a set of two hours,” he said.
