BABii

Screamer

    Electronic polymath BABii dropped her new collaborative mixtape SCREAMER this year, with features from Iglooghost, Jennifer Walton, kasus, Pholo, umru, and Warpstr. Fusing DnB, garage, and jungle with pop sensibilities, the project is a reflection of her experimental writing and production. To celebrate the mixtape, BABii is releasing a limited run of 200 vinyl, with extras designed and handmade by BABii herself. The vinyl are all recycled, a more sustainable (and ultimately creative way) of producing the product.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: While both 'Hide' and 'Mirror' were definitely showing signs of BABii's interest in modern EDM, garage and bass music, it's here on 'Screamer' that we really see her let lose to embrace those influences unhindered. Moments of breezy, bright electronica are offset with syncopated percussion and rich, booming sub-bass hits. A euphoric and transportive wonder.

    BABii

    MiiRROR

      Margate’s prolific polymath BABii follows her recent slice of UKG influenced futuristic-pop called ‘SHADOW’ with the emotive and hypnotic new single ‘BRUiiSE’ as she announces her forthcoming sophomore album MiiRROR. Released physically on the 4th June via Gloo, this highly anticipated project is a multidisciplinary manifestation of BABii’s authentic DIY sensibilities and will be accompanied by a book, ARG and live A/V show - all written, produced and creatively directed by BABii, real name Daisy Emily Warne.

      Seamlessly setting the tone of what’s to be expected of the album and given the nod from tastemakers including Resident Advisor, i-D, Electronic Beats, The Independent, Hunger, Dummy Mag, Loud & Quiet, The Line of Best fit, NPR, Anthony Fantano and more, first single ‘SHADOW’ dropped alongside a video directed by BABii and Johnny Goddard that aimed to aesthetically capture the soul and imagination of where she grew up as a young child. Filmed at night time in a junkyard, this transportative visual treads the line of fantasy and reality with added VFX and costume all designed and made by BABii out of bungee cords, seat belts, tarpaulin and more. Where ‘SHADOW’ explored not facing your biggest inner demons, ‘BRUiSE’ further enlightens us to this this upcoming projects narrative as BABii sings about “being scared about making the right choice and trying to figure out whether a feeling is true or if it's just an old hurt (or bruise) trying to trick you into repeating a pattern of self sabotage.”

      Music has always been a mirror for electronic pop adventurer BABii where among her songs’ skittering beats and fractured synths are reflections of her deepest self. Abandonment is at the heart of this haunting record because Warne grew up without a mother, raised in Yorkshire, Kent and Canada by a nomadic father who, after quitting a potential career playing ice hockey, hustled his way through life, turning his hand to antique dealing and building and renting out a warehouse space to creatives.

      The context for this compelling new project is a long awaited interaction following the re-entry of Warne’s mother in her life that one day unleashed a tidal wave of emotions and sparked something in Warne, who decided to devote her next project to exorcising those demons - the dark reality and the idyll she had in her head as a kid. A universe built on real life heartache, MiiRROR will present a fantastical tale and exploration of “the duality of emotions: good and bad, light and dark” across ten songs and a story full of demons and junk yards.

      An ardent and inspired teller of stories both dreamlike and real, BABii’s nomadic and creative upbringing by her father laid the foundations for her DIY and daring experimental approach to creation. Since her 2018 debut single ‘PHANTOM’, 2019 debut album HiiDE, GLOO collective collaborative album XYZ and most recent EP iii+, this accomplished multidisciplinary producer, songwriter, vocalist and visual artist has been consistently championed on the airwaves by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne and Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, 1Xtra, and in the press by tastemakers including Loud and Quiet, The Quietus, Clash, The Line of Best Fit and more.

      A conceptual artist both sonically and visually, BABii’s unique and instantly recognisable, mellifluous and nymph like vocals blended with ethereal, textured and challenging productions have gained her a loyal following of fans. As we enter a new post pandemic chapter on this earth, BABii promises to provide some much needed sonic escapism as she takes us further into her world.

      Lei Line Eon - written and produced entirely by Iglooghost is the creative polymath's follow up to his breakthrough debut album Neō Wax Bloom. The sophomore album is a product of Iglooghost integrating a lost tradition he has spent his time researching called Lei Music with the laptop music he is known for. The performance of Lei Music has extraordinary effects and whilst there is no clear explanation of why - some believe it could be related to a variety of properties unique to Dorset. Lei Line Eon features collaborations with LOLA and BABii, the latter who he has worked with alongside Kai Whiston collectively as 'Gloo' - creating clothing, club nights and strange online artefacts.

      Speaking on the album Iglooghost says “I wrote Lei Line Eon after studying my hometown’s secretive tradition of Lei Music - a mysterious subgenre that summons floating lifeforms. I wanted to make a slow-motion squelching giga-detailed opus that smells like granite & perfume.”

      Slyph Fossil marks the second single from Iglooghost’s upcoming album. The track features glitch-heavy production as the foundation behind Iglooghost's distorted vocals as he puts his own mark on Lei Music. Slyph Fossil follows on from Eœ (Disk•Initiate) released last year alongside Iglooghost's short film around Lei Music. The short film was directed and designed by Iglooghost who enlisted the help of Christopher Casey Denton for the 3D animation which brings the visual together.

      Iglooghost is a UK based artist who creates music, artwork and puzzles that all gravitate around a fictional ecosystem of strange entities and tiny gods. Each of Iglooghost’s releases expand on this universe through multimedia content and Lei Line Eon is sure to excite and intrigue listeners.
