about

Since his debut release in 2008, Matt Preston aka Phaeleh has developed an inimitable style of cinematic electronic music, which floats between the shifting tempos and timbres of dubstep, garage, electronica and house music. Following the release of the albums ‘Illusion of the Tale’ (2016) and ‘Lost Time’ (2017), Phaeleh drops his most eclectic album to date.

'Clarity' sees the Bristol based producer further push his sound and production versatility. Featuring the atmospheric sub heavy melodies Phaeleh is traditionally known for, with an increased focus on the hardware synthesisers and guitars which have become more prominent on his recent releases.

2018 saw Preston returning to the studio with the goal of creating a follow up to 'Lost Time' (2017) without the industry based delays and frustrations of that release, only taking time out for a remix on Anjunadeep and some select DJ/Live shows across North America and Europe.

“'Clarity’ is probably the most autonomous album I’ve made in a long time. It’s the first time I’ve really been able to detach myself from the self-imposed burdens and pressures of music making whilst also having true artistic freedom. It continues the conscious shift of recent albums to a more traditional recording setup of live instruments and hardware synths and drum machines rather than getting lost tweaking things on a computer screen.

It was mostly written in the first half of 2018. I took the approach of only writing when I knew I was feeling creative, rather than trying to force things to happen and ending up with hundreds of half finished ideas. It was very important to me to let it flow organically, and get it out fairly quickly, as most the material on my previous album was more than 3 years old by the time it came out.

I think the title refers to the Clarity I’ve found in the last year regarding all aspects of music, not just the writing of the music but also my place within the wider industry. Having returned to a setup where I have no label or management interference it’s amazing how free I feel and in turn how much more enjoyment I get from the writing process. It’s the first album I’ve ever made where I’ve really had fun making it and I feel it’s a very honest record where my focus was to make something that interests me, if other people like it then it’s just a bonus.”

Track Name: Stars (feat. Eva Maria)
Look up and watch the stars fall
Haloing your face
A flickering significance
Ephemeral in space

I would rather be
Here in the stars
And it’s clear to me
You’re not too far my love
Orbiting close
I would rather be
Here in the stars

Forget your preconceptions
Forget the things you know
You cannot understand this light
Dancing as it glows

I would rather be
Here in the stars
And it’s clear to me
You’re not too far my love
Orbiting close
I would rather be
Here in the stars

Fear of what tomorrow brings
Hold it in my hands
Let go as it floats away
Give love when it lands

I would rather be
Here in the stars
And it’s clear to me
You’re not too far my love
Orbiting close
I would rather be
Here in the stars

I would rather be
Here in the stars
And it’s clear to me
You’re not too far my love
Orbiting close
I would rather be
Here in the stars
Track Name: Time (feat. Cashforgold)
All alone with my demons
And you’re so far away
Searching for all the reasons
That I’m so afraid

And I feel
Like we’re running out of time
And I’m scared
That you’re leaving us behind
That you’re leaving us behind

And give it time
Give it time
We’ll be fine
In the sun will always rise
Just give it time
Give it time
We’ll be fine

Someday soon we’re together
And we’ll find the room to grow
Until then there’s no answer
And my heart is yours

And I feel
Like we’re running out of time
And I’m scared
That you’re leaving us behind
That you’re leaving us behind

And give it time
And give it time
We’ll be fine

Running
Running now we’re running
Running now we’re running
Running now we’re running (running out of time)
Running now we’re running
Running now we’re running
Running now we’re running (running out of time)

And I feel
Like we’re running out of time
And I’m scared
That you’re leaving us behind
That you’re leaving us behind

Give it time
We’re running out of time
Track Name: Until You Fall (feat. Augustus Ghost)
Raise your eyes
Raise your eyes
Can you feel
Can you see the sun rise
Raise your eyes
Raise your eyes
Can you feel
Can you see the sun rise
Raise your eyes
Raise your eyes
Can you feel
Can you see the sun rise
Raise your eyes
Raise your eyes
Can you feel
Can you see the sun rise
Can you feel the sun rise
Can you feel the sun rise
Can you feel the sun rise
Can you feel the sun rise
Can you feel the sun rise

And you fell into her eyes
And you fell into her eyes
(into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
Could you dance with their light
So black but temptingly bright (into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
Can you open your heart
To the truth that comes with the night (into her eyes)
(into her eyes)

Will you dance with the fall
And know that nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
That nothing is all (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
And know that nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
That nothing is all (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
And know that nothing is all (into her eyes)
Nothing is all
Nothing is all (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
Know that nothing is all (into her eyes)
Nothing is all
Nothing is all (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
Will you dance ’til you fall (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
Will you dance ’til you fall (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
And know that nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
That nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
That nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
Will you dance ’til you fall (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall (into her eyes)
Will you dance ’til you fall
That nothing is all (into her eyes)
That nothing is all
Nothing is all (into her eyes)
Nothing is all
Nothing is all
(into her eyes)
(into her eyes)
