Footwork impressionism from SELA. / 17.02.2015



SELA.
is 21-years old Devante Tillis from California. The enigmatic producer operates in the aural wastelands somewhere between cloudrap, leftfield R&B, and a loose approach to footwork. He did beats for Kitty, Main Attrakionz, and Japanese songstress Noah. Furthermore, he caught the eye of tastemakers from Ryan Hemsworth to allmighty A$AP Mob. His Bandcamp account bursts with numerous smaller and bigger releases. Needless to say, the man is on a mission.

The EP first is SELA.’s vinyl debut. Tillis refines his formula and delivers six tracks that oscillate from longing melancholia and claustrophobic unrest. first is heavy on surface noise and subdued, seemingly random vocal samples that leave you with twisted attraction; piano loops and sparse guitar licks give rise to sparkles of occasional light. Fans of Shabazz Palaces or Spooky Black might find common ground here.



first is now available all digital and on 180g 12" vinyl in full-color sleeve on sale at our webstore. For more info and purchase options visit error-broadcast.com
