Den-Mate – Just So You Know

Jules Hale’s stage persona Den-Mate and her musical sound have evolved significantly since her experimental bedroom pop beginnings in 2013. The song “Just So You Know”, a highlight of Den-Mate’s debut self-titled solo album, is definitely recognizable but greatly expanded in its current form backed by members of Babe City Records label-mates The Sea Life, in this live take from the label’s new Babe City Sessions series directed by Robin Groulx & Eli Sinkus. Pick up Den-Mate’s newest EP Entropii on cassette or digital, but do yourself a favor and experience the Den-Mate live show ASAP.

Den-Mate – DC Junkie

The best place to see Julia Hale front the Babe City Records crew as Den-Mate is front & center. That’s where noted videographer Michael Andrade captured this performance of “DC Junkie” at the Luce Unplugged concert seriess at the Smithsonian American Art Museum last November. That’s where you should be tonight when Den-Mate headlines an album re-release show at the Black Cat along with Baltimore’s Sitcom and label-buds Witch Coast. As work continues on recording new material with Hale and her backing band, Babe City opted to remix Hale’s initial GarageBand demos from 2013, showing a more electronic angle than the loud and brash sound Hale leads now. With releases from Foozle, The Sea Life, Witch Coast, BRNDA and Young Rapids, Babe City is doing great work to broaden the popularity of their flavor of the DC music scene.
