MC Hughie Babe

Real Name:
Hugo Langras
MC Hughie Babe recorded his first dance music record in 1989 after he was invited by Peter "Hithouse" Slaghuis to record a Hip House track. Peter had heard of Hughie Babe's MC performance on a tape that was recorded by the jury of a hip hop talent search and Peter decided to give him a call. The co-operation between Hithouse and Hughie Babe led to the release "Unarmed and Dangerous" that was to become a club hit and which was later cosidered to be a classic in the gabber scene. This was primarily due to the fact that "Unarmed and Dangerous" "was played massively in the birthplace of gabber/hardcore, club Parkzicht in Rotterdam.

After Peter Slaghuis died in a car crash, Hughie Babe left for the USA to study and forgot about MC-ing, until DJ Rob contacted him to re-record "Unarmed and Dangerous". From that moment on, MC Hughie Babe started working with DJ Rob at Coolman records, both recording and performing live all over Europe at major hardcore and gabber parties. The biggest Hardcore hit Hughie Babe and Rob had was their true hardcore anthem "Lords of the Hardschool" , which they recorded together with DJ Paul Elstak.

In the mid 1990's Hughie Babe was invited by Klubbheads to record rap lyrics for their release "discohoping" and the co-operation was such a succes that Hughie Babe recorded every rap in every Klubbheads release untill now, also doing vocalson for Klubbheads productions such as DJ BoozyWoozy and Al Capuccino-welcome to Ibiza.

In 2004, while still working with Klubbheads, Hughie Babe started recording with DJ Pulsedriver, one of the most popular DJ's and producers in Europe. Together, they recorded the single "Beat Bangs" and the follow up "Slammin", both tracks were top 10 in the German Dance charts and were licensed to dozens of countries around the globe.

MC Hughie Babe's voice is probably one of the most recognizable in the dance music scene. Because he never recorded a solo single or 12" after "Unarmed and Dangerous" he is also one of the most unknown faces in the dance music industry. An odd situation, since his vocals were dominant in some of the biggest club hits in the 1990's.
