The second vinyl only release from this impeccable label presents textures of true deep house with 'Vapour Rises’ and the mysterious ‘Beings Beyond Comprehension', a spoken word ‘Dedication to The Light’ from a leading authority in the Sound Healing Field, a call for us to find the higher purpose, particularly relevant in these changing times and finally 'Chant of Antara (meaning ‘Within’ in Sanskrit) a blissful ambient piece created by layers of throat singing and ethereal effects.
Vapour Rises is beautiful, melancholy, meditative, deep house following on from the classics like Fingers Inc who created the genre so many moons ago. The Celestial Vocoder vocal version notes our “Searching for meaning, Looking into little light boxes (our phones, computer screens and TVs)”
Celestial Being talking about Vapour Rises:
Vapour Rises was composed in Chicago. I was looking out of a hotel window on the fourth floor, looking out over the roof tops. It was very cold outside and as I remember almost in Black and White, probably twilight time. I saw people as dark shapes against the snow, and the odd car..but that just kind of went on and I was transfixed watching the smoke above the buildings going up into the sky. I felt in a very deep medative state making the track, as I considered Frankie Knuckles recent passing, in this city where the Underground Culture of Unity and House was his legacy. I had met him and spent time with him. He was a sweet, sincere and very positive human being. I considered my own death, of our short time here on this earth, how necessary it is for us to be genuine, honest, authentic, true. Watching the vapours rising from the buildings was like watch seeing souls rising up to divinity.
‘So many lonely souls in the city as the snow settles, everybody looking into little light boxes, as the system powers down, So many golden souls in the city as the snow settles..looking into little light boxes trying to find their way back home...’
