Over the summer, the internet-addled production duo elite gymnastics released their sparkling Ruin 1 & 2 collection online, and it was enough to generate a ton of buzz and get them signed to Acéphale, the label that’s legit-releasing the digital version of Ruin 1 & 2 this week. And soon, elite gymnastics will also release Ruin 3, a new collection of other artists reinterpreting their tracks. CFCF, Physical Therapy, Unicorn Kid, and others will contribute. Below, we’ve got the mutant-R&B auteur How To Dress Well’s tender, funereal take on the rattling dance-pop track “h e r e i n h e a v e n.” And in case you missed it the first time, we’ve also got the original below.

Ruin 3 will be out for free online in mid-November. Ruin 1 & 2 will also have a physical version featuring a chapbook full of the egz guys’ art and such via Acéphale.
