The re-recorded Knight’s record, made in 1 weekend after the previous version was scrapped. Babe, Terror joins the dots between Spaceman 3, minimal cold wave, Loop, Actress and beyond. The vinyl is fully etched and plays from the inside out, so you would need to put the needle in the middle of the record, and it would play out to the edges. Design and illustration by North Internet. Concept by Erol Alkan & David Rudnick.
‘A sound that lies back and watches the clouds dance their own dance, Claudio Szynkier’s IDM, partly celestial, partly the result of a splintered subconscious that should be analysed by clipboard holders in white coats, buries ambient house with plenty of emotional tremors dispatched with it.’ – Big Shot 4/5
‘Ever since the release of the eponymous “Music Has The Right To Children” barely a month goes by without a misguidedly over-excited reviewer comparing some outfit or other to Boards of Canada. Almost always, it’s unjustified. Babe, Terror, a one-man bedroom adventurer from Sao Paulo, is one of the few artists who can lay fair claim to that liminal territory.’ – The Monitors Single Of The Week
‘This is bedroom music, without a doubt – each track is a sonic adventure based on a handful of repeated, mutating phrases. In the hands of lesser producers, this could feel reductive or limited, but Babe, Terror manage to create a fragile, reverent atmosphere which grows in the listener’s mind with each listen.’ The Skinny 4/5
‘Knights’ is the sound of music that has lost its way and doesn’t care. This is bizarre strange stuff that gets stuck in your head like so much new-age airport Muzak. Yet there’s something here nearly psychedelic in nature that keeps it utterly engrossing.’ Beach Sloth 8.3
‘These are the kind of somber tunes heaving with oceanic patience that take a minute to fall into. But once you sink, it’s like a stone. The consistent sample-set and synth-voicing throughout Knights recalls a less frenetic Burial, dialing down the pulse of harrowing cityscapes and wrenching out a weird kind of joy in isolation.’ Ad Hoc
‘Imagine The Field subject to five further phases of distortion and you’ll have some idea of what awaits you here.’ - Resident Advisor
