about

Baba ‘Odd Potion’ is the debut full length release from Dublin resident Daragh Monaghan. ‘Odd Potion’ manages to create a world that is aesthetically always referencing a fantastical vision of imagined mystery, yet allowing the real history of dance music into this otherworldly space.

Daragh cites Jeff Mills as an influential figure, in terms of his ability to allow his genuine interest in Sci-Fi and space into the DNA of his music - it’s success lies in it’s clear passion for other subjects, as Daragh notes about his own music “I guess i’m not too interested in the gritty urban experience, I just want to fight Dragons and shit”.

It’s refreshing to hear this meeting of concerns being discussed, as opposed to an attempt to pigeonhole yourself into a sound or genre. There’s so much variation here that it’s almost impossible to compare Baba musically, of course there are reference points but if anything ‘Odd Potion’ is better compared to a unreleased video game soundtrack … perhaps some kind of Dystopian Technoid RPG… Final Fantasy 7 as played by Kraftwerk. Zelda meets Blade Runner, etc etc.

Escapism at it’s best.
