MARBLE to Release L.L. Remix EP on Relief in Abstract Records

External image

Last summer experimental sound architect Alex DeWahl, better known by his stage name MARBLE, joined the roster of young producers on Relief in Abstract Records. His debut release “house music” featured a sound all his own with forward-thinking beat making and avant-garde song writing. The lush dream he composed with the track, “L.L.” led to the creation of phenomenal remixes by producers accelerating in the music scene today. This collection of reworks includes the likes of Blackbird Blackbird, Ta-ku, B.Lewis, Ruddyp and our own GRANT. Each producer provides their take on the experimental tune in an extravagant and lavish nature. On December 4th, the 6-track EP will be available for free download on Relief in Abstract Records, complete with album artwork as designed by Fortyounce Clothing designer Samuel Johnson. Read below for the complete list of tracks as mastered by GRANT.

  1. L.L. (Original Mix)

  3. L.L. (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)
  4. L.L. (B.Lewis Remix)
