Brazillian artist Babe, Terror began making his music for something to soundtrack long late night walks around Sao Paulo. He uses only his own voice and lo-fi recording equipment to create a planet of sound that's like a voyeuristic view from inside his head as he explores the city. The result is a twisted pop that the reconfigures the Beach Boys' lush harmonies, into something haunted by the night time of the city. Images of empty car parks, abandoned buildings and hot summers emerge through a hazy mist of fuzzed out layers of controlled feedback and spacious reverb.
His soundscapes have also provided the perfect bed for remixes from two artists creating progressive future music both at the height of their respective careers Memory Tapes, Four Tet and Appleblim. Each of these works shimmer in a hypnotic glaze of state of the art production and are gorgeous productions, making for a clear standout electronic release of the year.
