Below is a commentary by the label. 

"Christoph de Babalon's classic 90's ambient jungle breakbeat manifesto 'If You're Into, I'm Out Of It' was reissued on Christoph de Babalon's own label CFET five years ago, and this is the first release since. It sparked a new wave of admirers.

Cultivating his unique sound for over 30 years, Christoph de Babalon has continued to expand his sonic trajectory over the past few years, releasing one notable release after another on labels like Alter and AD 93.Now, Vale presents his most comprehensive album to date, a dazzling, hour-long onslaught that fully showcases Christoph de Babalon's radical, menacing, and unique style. ' was announced.

Upon entering Vale, it's immediately apparent that the album has an air of restraint and patience, highlighted by many languid voices and opaque, ominous ambient passages. .In addition to ``Arrethan,'' a collaboration piece with Polish singer and producer Antonina Nowacka, who previously attracted attention with her eerie and divine chorus song on her album ``Lamunan,'' she also released ``Good Morning, You Worm.'' '', ``Demon Glue'' and ``Denn Sie Sind Hünen'' are a collection of works that suspend you in a realm of shadows, dominated by blissful eeriness and ominous resonance. "

After cultivating his own sound for over 30 years, de Babalon has continually expanded his sonic trajectory throughout the last few years via a series of noteworthy releases on labels such as Alter, A Colorful Storm and AD 93. Now he presents his most encompassing album to date via Vale, an hour long phantasmagoric onslaught showcasing the full spectrum of de Babalon's radical, menacing and inimitable style.

One thing that becomes clear from the get-go when diving into Vale, is that it's imbued with an air of restraint and forbearance, underscored by the many languishing voices and opaque, ominous ambient passages. These include the collaborative two piece 'Arrethan' with Polish and singer producer Antonina Nowacka, who previously made waves with her uncanny yet divine choral songs on her own album 'Lamunan', as well as pieces like 'Good Morning, You Worm', 'Demon Glue' and 'Denn Sie Sind Hünen' which verge from the blissfully eerie to being suspended in a shadowy realm governed by sinister resonance[...]"
