Dalhous shares Regis remix from forthcoming EP on Blackest Ever Black
DALHOUS SHARES REGIS REMIX VIA PITCHFORK VISIBILITY IS A TRAP EP OUT APRIL 14TH, 2014 PRE-ORDER HERE
Visibility Is A Trap is the new EP by Dalhous, comprised of four originals together with a masterfully understated Regis remix. The Regis remix of ‘He Was A Human And Belonged With Humans’ finds Karl O’Connor in unusually pensive mood. In fact it’s fair to say that this near-beatless, dubwise version is unlike anything he has put his name to before. Discarding the rhythmic skeleton of Dalhous’s original, he gives the weeping saxophone more space to roam and resonate, adding off-beat, sleep-deprived keys, murmured vocal fragments and swells of sub-bass pressure. It could be construed as a love letter to his former home in West Berlin; certainly it evokes and effortlessly updates the drugsick grandeur of later Neubauten or Low side 2.
Dalhous first announced its existence in 2012 with the Mitchell Heisman 10”, and last year released its debut full-length: An Ambassador For Laing. Both Visibility Is A Trap and the upcoming Will To Be Well LP reflect writer-producer Marc Dall's continued interest in the language and imagery of self-help, R.D. Laing and the anti-psychiatry movement.
This EP heralds the arrival of the Edinburgh-based project's sophomore album, Will To Be Well, due out on Blackest Ever Black in early Summer 2014.
On May 22 Dalhous play live in London, supporting Wolfgang Voigt as part of the St John Sessions concert series; on April 5th they perform at the LAPSUS festival in Barcelona alongside Fennesz, Etch and others. Full details of Will To Be Well will be announced in due course.

"The ill person who recovers sufficient strength to learn how to silence the racing mind, to see more of other people, of nature, and of the self, and to experience from time to time 'the mysterious order of all things', will find that circumstances which previously seemed to offer undiluted misery are first transcended and then gradually, magically, transformed."
