Christoph De Babalon
Following single releases on Fischkopf, DHR and his own Cross Fade Enter-Tainment label, Hamburg-based Christoph De Babalon released one of our favourite albums on the DHR label ('If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It', 1997), marking the producer out as a master of dark sound-scaping and hard, scything drum 'n' bass. Invited to contribute to the split series, four tracks were released on the flipside of Kid606 in early '99.
Having since moved to Berlin, Christoph continues to run the Cross Fade label he began in 1995, through which he has released material from the likes of Unit Moebius, I-F, Somatic Responses, Pure, Diskbootik, DJ Scud, Bombardier, and N1tro. Christoph also toured through Europe with Radiohead in May 2001.
