It’s been a long time coming, but Ramsgate Music Hall’s golden child BABii is set to release her debut LP ‘HiiDE’ on July 5th. We’re celebrating in style just a few days later, with a RMH launch party!
“We’re swept into BABii’s glitzy lair, where the beat is in our bones, the perfectly pitched chimes have infested in our mind, and there’s no going back” – The 405
BABii produces incredibly forward-thinking electro tinged pop/R&B which features skittering beats and incredibly thick, layered synths with heavy bass with a semi industrial feel to them. The lyrics are dark, yet the vocals are sweet and despite its incredible pop hooks the whole LP drips with a sentiment of loss and abandonment. BABii wowed SXSW this year playing 7 shows in 5 days and being compared to everyone from Grimes to FKA Twigs and while those comparisons give you a jumping off point, they also feel lazy as BABii definitely inhabits her own unique world.
“What sets the BABii project apart – the album, the aesthetic, the sonics and the GLOO community – is the uniform attention to detail; the pursuit for perfection, even when the tools to achieve it aren’t automatically to hand” – Loud & Quiet
“It’s a sumptuously textured slice of electro-pop, with glimmers of pre-Art Angels (pre-Elon) Grimes in its measured introductory notes and fairy-like vocal” – Line of Best Fit
“Startling, wholly unique electronic pop, her work drifts between art galleries and clubs, shifting context while retaining that vivid voice” – Clash
