"Bonfire of the Vanities" was created by R.tiste.Un.known after experiencing the incredible Lewes Bonfire Night 2014. R.tiste was struck by the power and disdain for the establishment and modern established norms. R.tiste viewed it as a cleansing, a rebirth, a violent burning of the past ugliness of mankind. This year seemed like the perfect time to release 'Bonfire of the Vanities’, in a culture awash with selfies and the creation of fake online personalities, of people scrabbling for attention, fame and celebrity. A burning of out of controlled egos and illusion.
The track is visual, mysterious, even military, with layers of sound recorded on the actual Bonfire night at Lewes. The accompanying 'Night Embers' wriggles through deep earthly depths, pulsating ominously, delivering a deep house track for the more brooding underground house djs.
