Longtime Tigerbeat6 brother Christoph de Babalon (he appeared on our first AND third release over a decade ago!!) graces us with this haunting single from his upcoming album A Bond with Sorrow. CDB is a peerless musician able to effortlessly combine the high art worlds of his sound installations, dance and film soundtracks, with the low end dark realms of his more sinister work on labels like Alec Empire’s Digital Hardcore Recordings (DHR), Fatcat, Zhark, Lowres and his own [CFET]. It’s no question why he has been championed by tastemakers as diverse as John Peel, Thom Yorke, and Alec Empire. The title track “Traumspiel” opens like a classic Dario Argento soundtrack with spine tingling strings and a romantic arpeggiating bass line. Things seem almost peaceful until the drop of the timeless shuffling Jungle breakbeats CDB has made a signature part of his sound. “Hell’s Harps” is a dark juxtaposition of chaotic live instrumentation and discordant drum programming like a soundclash between Sonic Youth and Aphex Twin at their scariest. “Black Moon Rising” is am ominous percussive meditation on tension and release which rewards the listener with a powerful sonic resolution. The cover artwork just as on Christoph’s previous releases Scylla & Charybdis and A World of My Own is by British visual artist Ian Liddle.
