I've been having some sort of a rough time in ello... this problem (if it can actually be called a problem) is a two parter, allow me to elaborate:
I changed jobs, basically I resigned from my work as content specialist for a digital content agency, and I'm now working as a digital strategist for a company that creates music and cultural festivals (yay me!) The transition has not been the smoothest, and I'm still getting used to my new gig.
But then there's also the fact that ello has changed, the new editorial content is amazing but ello tapes and vinyl gets less views now, a fact I've had to come to terms with. To be fair it's ok, I didn't start this project to become extra famous, but to showcase some really amazing LPs and cassettes.
Which is what I plan to keep doing, so I apologize for the lack of new posts, and I'd love it if you could tell a friend or re-post if you like the content I'm creating. Anyhoo, on to the music!
I just wanted to let you know about this reissue of sorts... This is quite the departure for ello tapes and vinyl as it's pretty much the other way around, this record was physical way before it made its way into the digital realm (it's now 20 years old).
I'm talking about Christoph de Babalon's If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It. It benefits greatly from sounding completely anachronistic -20 years since its release it still sounds very much from the future, but it's also felt (and feels) like a fully formed statement from a young iconoclast.
If you're into Actress, Burial, Aphex Twin, and the like, you can't do any better. Get it here!
