A lonely scrivener operating at the fringe beyond what we might call break core, shadowy producer Christoph De Babalon outlines a new continent on his vast sound map with 044 (Hilf Dir Selbst!). Here’s another record best suited either to wrecking the dance or headphone escapism, the beats are utterly magnetic as they are existentially terrifying. The percussion is intense across the board, be it delivered via pin sharp programming or the deep rumbling of sticks on drum skins. Layers of dense drones and bellowing sound design weave and wind throughout. As the title translates, “help yourself”.
