Fake Blood - Cells

A welcome oddity
Fake Blood - Cells

The debut full-length of dance music wizard Theo Keating is a welcome oddity. Released under his moniker Fake  Blood, Cells brings a sense of  immediacy and creativity to a genre long neglected by the mainstream dubstep epidemic. Keating’s exploration of dance touchstones allows it to sound consistently fresh, employing a variety of sonic eccentricities without ever sounding contrived. ‘All In The Blink’’s buoyant use of keys recalls house at its most playful but it’s the erratic kazoo blows, flutes, handclaps and distorted vocal samples elsewhere that will keep Fake Blood in the subconscious. Keating is a musical alchemist and the club scene should be scared.
