Hailing from The Netherlands, a country rich with electronic artists, Bakermat stands out thanks to his mix of jazzy saxophones, rock guitars, tropical percussion and soulful vocals.
• Music runs in the Dutchman’s blood. His mother was an opera singer, and his father raised him on American jazz, soul and funk records.
• Bakermat’s 2012 breakout single “Vandaag” (translation: “One Day”) samples Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech. The song charted in 14 countries and went platinum in Germany.
• Since his music is rooted in organic sounds, Bakermat performs alongside a full band, mixing his productions with live sax, guitar and vocals.
