  • Christoph de Babalon has a new record on the way. Hectic Shakes comes via Helm's Alter label, and features four new tracks from the experimental Hamburg producer. The press release says the new EP is "a meditation on the 'inner abyss,' the sort of abyss that lulls the listener into his sound world with next to no resistance," encompassing early '90s ambient techno and jungle. The EP lands in the midst of a resurgence of interest in de Babalon's older work, following the reissue of his 1997 album If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It. There's another collection of '90s de Babalon material, called Exquisite Angst, coming out on A Colourful Storm later this month. He also released a collaborative record with Warsaw group WIDT at the beginning of this month. Hectic Shakes will arrive on January 18th. Listen to "Harakiri."
