dMh releases glowing re-imagining of Joy Division’s ‘Disorder’

Originally hailing from Preston, dMh, a moniker of actor and audiobook narrator David Morley Hale, has been intermittently self-releasing musical material across his career. Receiving classical music training in Liverpool, his projects, ranging from arranging around Stephen Fry’s narration to a contemporary classical album, have received airplay on BBC Radio 6Music and BBC Radio 2.

Now David sets himself a new challenge, teasing an upcoming album with a cover of the Joy Division classic ‘Disorder’. The album, ‘Songs From The North’, sets out to re-working material from bands either hailing from or with links to the upper reaches of the British Isles.

The single re-imagines the Salford four-piece’s original track by blending acoustic and electronic instrumentation into a much more optimistic atmosphere. Slowing down the tempo and allowing the eclectic elements to shine together, dMh creates a bright and golden new vision for the music.

He adds, “The track, as with all those on the forthcoming album was a labour of love exercising my muso, arranging and production chops by putting new flesh on the bare bones of a classic song to hopefully give it a worthy, new parallel existence and not creating a Frankensteinian monster or enraging too many puritans in the process.”
