Bakermat has marked his return by announcing his forthcoming EP titled Do Your Thing, on Be Yourself/Sony. Inspired by the music of classic dance music artists including Basement Jaxx, Fatboy Slim & Moby, the EP is crafted around a vintage sound which dances between the underground and mainstream.
Bakermat gives us a sneak preview of the EP by way of its first single, “Lion.” The track perfectly demonstrates Bakermat’s flair for experimentation, infusing house with dancehall riffs and reggae-inspire vocals. With those expectedly sunny Bakermat vibes, listeners are given a summer sensation in the form of “Lion,” making it impossible to resist smiling and dancing along as the beat moves through your body. It’s incredible how much happiness can be packed into a song, but after five years of nonstop touring, Bakermat locked himself away to rediscover his passion for music, which can be heard in all five tracks off the forthcoming EP. The EP captures just how much fun Bakermat has with his music and that his end goal really is to just make music that feels good. You can listen to “Lion” below!
