Christoph de Babalon LIVE
Known for tripping rhythms, dark wide spaces and eternal melancholy, legendary producer Christoph De Babalon came back into view with his outstanding Grim Zenith EPon Nina and Good News VIS label last year. Swiflty followed with a universally acclaimed re-issue of his 1997 album If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It, a work of textural, darkside fascinations that influenced the breakcore generation and still confounds 20 years later. IYIIIOOI combines fast and aggressive hypnotic jungle beats with Christoph's trademark intense melodramatic atmospheres – themes which extend throughout his live performance.
“De Babalon has the zeitgeist by the throat... There have never been more people who want to be Into It, but De Babalon has the integrity to stay "as far away from the music scene as I possibly can." If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It's staying power is a product of this puritan outlook. It's a lonely place to be, but that's often the price of timeless art.” - RA (4.8/5)
