Our first Interview of 2016 not only highlights yet another young producer causing a stir with the sound of the future, but also showcases the incoming of talent originating for New Zealand. Babe is a 16-year-old producer from South Auckland, New Zealand. We have already featured articles on New Zealand natives such as; 2047, montell2099 and know about the talents of THV newest recruit, ANKA. So when I first came across babe on Soundcloud, I instantly heard a familiar dope NZ vibe.
The ability to dabble in future and trap was noticeable and how hard hitting every track was. MUST LISTEN tracks are;
Babe, at just 16 has a growing fan base with a sound that can give him only one title, a BEAST!

BABE: Yooo I'm Jeremy also known as babe, I'm from South Auckland in NZ
TREEHOUSE: When did you start making music?

TREEHOUSE: What kind of sound would you say you have?
BABE: NZ sound, shout out to all the Kiwis. Nah on a serious note I’m not too sure, I can't stick it to a specific style. One day I’d feel like making some future stuff, the next day I’d feel like making cloud trap. It all just depends on how I feel haha
