Bakermat is a name that is synonymous with the soul house genre. He was creating melodic, sax filled riffs before it was the thing to do. The artist, who has never feared originality, has gone on once again to turn heads with his latest EP ‘Ballade'.
The two track sampling is a wealth of game changing views on the genre but still rich with his signatures. The title track of the extended play is haunting and beautiful. Steady drum kicks blend seamlessly into an airy vocal and piano melody that takes the listener away on a sonic voyage.
The back end of EP, ‘Gone', has a much more familiar style typical of Bakermat. The seductive sax seems like it would fit as perfectly in a smokey jazz bar as it does in the track. Bakermat has released this critically acclaimed EP in addition to the nation wide ‘Circus' Tour (dates below).
