Part of our Albums of the Year 2016

In a year that has seen the world turned upside down, Babyfather's "BBF" Hosted By DJ Escrow is, alongside Anohni’s Hopelessnes a vastly focused on 2016 politically charged, yet life-affirming albums. Donning a brilliant cover design of a Union Jack-clad hoverboard on the edge of the city of London. Beyond the noise excursions, ringtones and the comedic DJ Escrow bars, "BBF" carries a strong and serious message in its undercurrent that does a lot to get across the feelings of social unease and unrest that is bubbling just under the surface of the disaffected youth to which "BBF" goes a long way towards representing.

Sleeve-art that has the online world foaming at the gills (with good reason), fresh collaborations with Arca, and Mica Levi, a press release written by British DJ/Hollywood Actor Idris Elba, track-titles like ‘Greezebloc’, ‘Esco Freestyle’, ‘Killuminati’ – it can only mean the glorious return of Dean Blunt (alongside other, as yet unrevealed, Babyfather members). Whatever, this promises to be a great record loaded with deft samplism, post-Dilla beatscapes, weed-addled Massive Attack atmospheres, screwed guitar shapes, and that Blunt-vocal; underscored by classic art-pop sensibility.
