Premiere: ELLLL – Housebreaker (Parris’ Slo’ Motion Remix)
10 unread messages, 15 missed calls and counting; the alerts flashed up on her screen one after another. She flipped the phone over — out of sight, out of mind. She knew what would greet her if she responded, and she wasn’t ready to confront it yet. For now, she preferred to retreat into an imagined world and ignore everything else around her. The real world could wait.
Dublin’s First Second Label charge into 2021 with the release of Housebreaker, the highly anticipated return of WRY MYRRH member and DDR resident ELLLL, which gets a sparse, slomo twist from Can You Feel The Sun co-founder Parris. The record follows her Febreeze EP last year and, again, showcases her knack for intricate sound design and production chops. While the title track brings dystopian breaks and feverish tension, the Alantis Dub amps up the atmosphere and temp, delivering an experimental twist on D’n’B.
