Christoph de Babalon is a German electronic producer, experimental artist and DJ, best known for his work on Alec Empire's label Digital Hardcore Recordings, especially If You're Into It, I'm Out of It (1997). He also is the co-founder of the label Cross Fade Enter Tainment (CFET). Christoph de Babalon was born in Hamburg, Germany and stayed there for most of his life until 1999 when he moved to Berlin.
Christoph de Babalon will make his debut on Alter with a new four-track EP Hectic Shakes, which will arrive early next year. The EP revisits the frenetic breakcore and dark ambience with which the producer made his name on labels such as Digital Hardcore and Fat Cat Records, and references the eerie in-between spaces of vintage Unit Moebius or Deutsch Nepal. Christoph de Babalon broke onto the scene with his 1997 cult album If You’re Into It, I’m Out Of It, and has since released a steady stream of projects on Digital Hardcore, Fat Cat, V I S and his own label Cross Fader Enter Trainment

In stock now for same day shipping. Long-serving, jungle-loving experimentalist Christoph De Babalon is on a roll. This rock solid EP comes hot on the heels of his latest inspired album, "Exquisite Angst", which slipped out in early December 2018. The four tracks offered up here are typically bolshy and bass-heavy, with De Babalon mixing and mangling IDM and Atari Teenage Riot style "digital D&B" insanity to suit his own twisted ends. In terms of highlights, we're particularly enjoying the bass-weight, skittish breakbeats and ghostly electronics of "Harakiri" and the more loose and languid.

From the perforated despair of Harakiri, the four-track EP moves through themes of introversion, thaw, and solace. Endless Inside sends synth flares into a sky of white noise before erupting into anxious drum breaks and towering bass. The hi-hats cut through, the crispest feature in a dubbed-out world. Things get even livelier on Shivers and Shakes, which has both feet in the ambient drum ’n’ bass world, but it’s the EP’s closer that’s the real scene-stealer. Musically, I am mostly exploring the past, De Babalon said in 2015. Generally, I have been trying to make as much music as possible while staying as far away from the music scene as I possibly can. The producer’s relative self-isolation from the revolving door of the music industry has no doubt contributed to the stalagmite-like growth of his sound.
