dd elle is a producer who makes songs that sound revealingly intimate while also being completely mysterious. “Tell Me” is the most recent dd elle song, and it was put out by Ryan Hemsworth via his Secret Songs series, where he often works to showcase lesser-known artists. Listen to and download “Tell Me” below, and read a brief note from Hemsworth talking about it, in which he compares them to Jai Paul.
“dd elle songs are these strangely lovely calculated moody messes. they’re full of synth tones that rarely get matched with the types of melodies he plays; the vocals are alien and so unexpectedly placed they’re almost jarring at times; and the use of space and silence is always an aural treat. he’s kind of jai paul level of ~mystery~ and talent, i think. dig in and use headphones.”
