spandAnanda Awesome dark oozes through ethereal spaces as dnb breakbeats infect with irrepressible rhythms. I remember when I first heard a few tracks of his in the late 90s on a DHC compilation. I looked all over for more, but back in those days there was no internet, and believe it or not my local cd shops didn't carry him :) Some things have improved after all !
love you Babs!!!

Prole Sector Can't ever seem to get enough of this track. I play it once, I have to play it again! (and I still can't work out why haha!) The simplicity, hissy minimalism and wailing drone hold some hidden message Favorite track: Realistic Riot Ritual Routine.

Copper&Grease Absolutely immense music, blistering, unrelenting, dark, uncompromising. Can't wait for the next volumes. Favorite track: Sargzimmern.

damon kirby amazing lp, a reminder why babalon is one of the great masters...a synphony of emotion and soul, that few electronic artists can convay...babalon is back to show the rable how its done.

All music © 1993-2014 Christoph de Babalon

Ten tracks from the vaults before the masters perish. This collection of classic works includes some of the very earliest material that Christoph de Babalon ever recorded. A few tracks date as far back as 1993 and take us straight into his teenage years of German angst, rolled down blinds and Amiga computers. This was years before his work on Digital Hardcore Recordings (DHR) and even before John Peel had heard of him and played Christoph's truly isolationist music to a worldwide audience.

Some tracks and versions have never been released. Others are rare compilation tracks and sold out goods. If you are missing your favourite track from some particular 1990s demotape, please keep in mind that this is only the first release in the series.
