Taiwan-born, Berlin-based audio-visual artist Sabiwa has announced her second album, DaBa, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 輪迴. Out October 2, the release is the artist’s second for Chinabot, a platform and collective created in 2017 to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music (and one of our favorites!). The album will be celebrated October 19 with a release party at Berlin’s ACUD.

DaBa touches on trip-hop, harsh noise, musique concrète, and ambient, all while tiptoeing the line between traditional and experimental categorizations; it exists in between moods and sonics. Says Sabiwa: “DaBa is the blurred moment when I wake up from a dream. And I don’t understand if it is me or not.”
