Electronic music artist BABii has announced an album party, which by the sounds of it, is set to rival landing on the moon – but with ice cream. In the lead up to the event, the artist has shared news of a (cancelled) funfair, mysterious investigations, missing children reports, and a hotline to call: (01274) 066477.

BABii’s sophomore album, which was released earlier this year, is a truly magical atmosphere of sparsely distributed whispers, twinkly synthesisers, and fragments of UKG. Like the late SOPHIE or Iglooghost (one of the album’s collaborators), production this forward-thinking and surreal makes for the perfect soundscape to an imaginary world.
BABii is providing her fanbase with more than music and a place in which fans can crack the enigma code of her latest album, ‘MiiRROR’ – the event will take place this weekend in Ramsgate from the back of a transit van – part of an alternate reality game, which you can follow on BABii Discord.
Her nomadic and creative background was the foundation for which to explore a story full of demons and junk yards and “the duality of emotions: good and bad, light and dark” across the album’s ten tracks.
