Making “The Three Poisons” New: A Conversation with Rishi Dhir about Elephant Stone’s “ES3PRMX”

“For a remix record, people say, ‘Well, it’s not really new material.’ But it is in a way.”

So says Elephant Stone leader Rishi Dhir about his band’s latest project: ES3PRMX, an album of remixes of songs from the 2014 LP, The Three Poisons.

ES3PRMX, which comes out today (2nd June 2015, and is available for download here), isn’t the standard remix album. In fact, it’s far from it.

Dhir has released a record that gives seven of today’s leading musicians a chance to, in essence, collaborate with him and his Elephant Stone band mates, Gabriel Lambert and Miles Dupire, on the creation of a new version of The Three Poisons. And this new version bears traces of the record that came out last year, but it’s really a brand new work that deconstructs and reassembles The Three Poisons in extremely creative and unpredictable ways.

ES3PRMX is its own beast.

The Dandy Warhols’ Peter Holmstrom tears The Three Poisons’ lead single apart and shines a light on it’s darker/more evil aspects. A sub-bass speaker highly recommended.
