About this item
'This EP is a collection of songs that were recorded during the past couple of years,' says Baba. 'They all represent things I’ve been going through, just day to day stuff; travelling, DJing, meeting people, being alone a lot, falling in love, parties, hang-overs etc. 'Showtime’ as a title just means it’s showtime. Before every gig, every day of travel. Always somewhere. Pressure, stress, excitement. Gig-economy self-loathing and megalomani.'
Swedish-born 24-year-old Baba Stiltz (real name) has been steadily releasing his idiosyncratic take on dance music to growing fanfare. His is a playful brand of electronic music, injected with a personal touch that crosses boundaries and genres unlike anyone else. Opening the EP with jazz inflected slow-jam "Showtime", with a direct address of his current life situation; the EP peaks with "Maze" - the kind of Summer floor-filler Baba is such a natural at crafting. Alongside a duo of other unique, soul-flecked jams, Baba finds his full range on show for this XL released, "Showtime EP". Fun, musical and most enjoyable - a future BBQ favourite surely and an EP you don't wanna be without during this, one of the best Summer's for years.... Tip top.
Matt says: Unique vocal stylings meet an advanced but crowd pleasing sound design resulting in a fresh sounding EP with loads of commercial, radio and cross over potential to the clubs and outdoor parties.
