Robert Babicz is unquestionably one of the leading lights on the electronic scene, with a uniquely emotion-drenched sound that has given rise to a much-bejewelled CV. Recent highlights include his contribution of a whole CD’s worth of music to John Digweed’s Quattro 2 collection, another lauded album for Marc Romboy’s Systematic imprint and a slew of impressive releases on his own Babiczstyle imprint.
Robert and Selador have enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership over many years. This has included single releases such as the Red/Green EP (our first ever vinyl release) , One Day We’ll Be Happy and Tonefabrik; plus remixes of Paul Rutherford’s evergreen Get Real, and most recently the acclaimed breaks and ambient re-rubs of Kiz Pattison & Micah’s Beam of Light.
The Space Funk collection delivers three tracks of classic Babicz, and has already garnered upfront support from DJs as diverse as Sven Vath, Yousef and Doc Martin, as well as Selador’s own Dave Seaman and Steve Parry.
Title track Space Funk kicks off proceedings with a lushly cinematic extended ambient intro, before beach bar beats usher in a gorgeous array of sun drenched hooks. A cosmic beauty.
Galactic Traveler is constructed with equal thought and care but takes a very different path. Breaks-driven electro stylings provide a bed for a series of memorable motifs that Robert dovetails in masterly fashion.
By way of contrast, Golden Days is the heads down dancefloor piledriver in this trio of gems. A Buzzsaw bassline and acid techno riffage are the order of the day, but this being Babicz, dreamily ethereal pads also play a key part.
Truly a master at work.
