Over the past 2 years Rabit has developed a formidable reputation within the underground via a steady stream of acclaimed 12" releases and mixtapes. With strong ties to similarly buzzed about producers Mumdance and Logos, having worked with both on a number of releases, culminating most notably in a guest spot on the latters debut LP, 'Cold Mission', one of 2013's most acclaimed electronic albums, as well as affiliations with the severely hyped Janus crew (M.E.S.H. designed the artwork for 'Baptizm') and a genuine hit on the British grime scene with his Riko featuring 'Black Dragons', Rabit feels poised to breakthrough in 2015 which is why Tri Angle is very excited to announce his debut on the label. 'Baptizm' is a record of 2 halves, the ornate, gothic waltz of Imp and Hex grinding against the pounding mechanical violence displayed on Bloody Eye and Straps. On an emotional level Baptizm is about having one's life thrown completely out of order and finding solace in an imagined world. Themes of destruction and regeneration dominate throughout as well as an ongoing obsession on the often-ugly clash between sexuality and religion. All in all 'Baptizm' finds Rabit continuing to feel out the parameters of his increasingly alien sonic world in a typically exciting fashion.
