Chicago's Dehd will release Flower of Devotion Remixed on September 17 via Fire Talk. It features tracks from their 2020 debut album remixed and reworked by friends and collaborators Lala Lala, Protomartyr, Freak Heat Waves, LionLimb, and more.
“What I love about dance music is that it exists to put my body into motion,” says Dehd's Jason Balla. “It can do so many things that a normal song can’t because of its humble mission: keep the asses shaking. Dance music is just plain fun. In this spirit, we invited 14 friends to chop up Flower of Devotion and put it back together as they saw fit. No rules, no guidelines. The songs went all over the place and it was really amazing to hear songs I knew so well become something new altogether. Hearing one of our voices or a guitar line in a new context really showed me how much room as a band we have to explore. It's already impacted how we approach writing at practice, figuring out the basics and then asking ‘now what?’”
