Last month, Houston-based producer Rabit announced his ‘Baptizm EP, which will be out March 17 via Tri Angle Records. He has returned with “Straps” and NPR premiered the single, calling it “a bruising electronic rush of adrenaline” – click here to listen.

Over the past 2 years, Rabit has developed a formidable reputation within the underground via a steady stream of acclaimed 12” releases and mixtapes. His notable credits include close ties to and collaborations with similarly buzzed about producers Mumdance and Logos, culminating most notably in a guest spot on the latter’s debut LP, ‘Cold Mission,’ as well as affiliations with the severely hyped Janus crew (M.E.S.H. designed the artwork for ‘Baptizm). Singularly, he delivered a genuine hit on the British grime scene with his “Black Dragons”, featuring Riko, last fall.

‘Baptizm’ is a record of 2 parts, 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.
