Dalhous – Visibility Is A Trap

"Visibility Is A Trap is an EP by Dalhous, comprised of four originals together with a masterfully understated Regis remix of He Was Human And Belonged With Humans'.

Visibility Is A Trap reflects writer-producer Marc Dall's interest in the language and imagery of self-help, R.D. Laing and the anti-psychiatry movement.

While Information Is Forever'and A Change Of Attitude'are firmly in the ambient mode, Active Discovering'fizzes with arpeggiated energy, and a battery of percussion disrupts the calm surface of Sight Of Hirta'. Something is up. All is not as it seems.

The Regis remix of Ambassador highlight He Was A Human And Belonged With Humans'finds Karl O'Connor in unusually pensive mood. In fact 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 their 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."
