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.
Despite its incredible pop hooks the whole LP drips with an undercurrent of darkness. BABii wowed SXSW this year playing 8 shows in 7 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 and her label Death Waltz Originals are very excited to give you your first dive into it.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“These clandestine sessions yielded a thrilling thing: weaving urban electronica and cool, wafting vocals that veer between sombre and sweet.” - Aesthetica Magazine.
“Startling, wholly unique electronic pop, her work drifts between art galleries and clubs, shifting context while retaining that vivid voice.” - Clash.
“Synths dance around snapping, ultra-tight percussion and vocal chops, generating the ultimate beautiful-meets-banger vibe.” - Nest.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
