“Bakermat debuts live show and new album at Brixton’s O2 Academy”
Super promotion Red Sky London is proud to announce its next spectacular show, this time at the suitably larger O2 Academy in Brixton, on Saturday 6th September and showcasing a first ever live show from Dutch sensation Bakermat to launch his forthcoming full length album. Support comes in the form of live instrumentalists and global house stars Goldfish plus Aka Aka & Thalstroem, Kant & Jolyon and more guests will be announced in the near future.
Red Sky have previously hosted sell out shows with the likes of Bakermat, Tube & Berger and Claptone, and already have a reputation for going that extra mile in terms of production with huge LED screens, pyrotechnics, forward-facing visuals and lighting and generally the sort of awesome vibe and aura you’d expect at a festival headlining rock concert.
Headlining is Bakermat once again, a man truly on the verge of stardom and on the eve of releasing his debut album, which is sure to send him into the stratosphere. Said album, like his music to date is a melodic fusion of house and techno produced in a minimalist manner with jazz and soul notes to finish it off. It comes on labels like Delicieuse Records and Soundplate and the new album is likely to be his fullest artistic statement to date.
Bakermat himself is also a trained musician who can play keys as well as he DJs. As such this 90-minute show will mark his first live concert and will see him play songs old and new with a saxophonist, key player, bass player, vocalist and percussionist. Sure to be a spine tingling, sensory overload of a show, this exclusive and very special performance is not to be missed.
Next headliners Goldfish are South Africans Dom and Dave, a live duo that does things properly, building their tracks from the bottom up with real instrumentation. Both members of the group studied music formally and have played all over the world from Pacha to Ultra Music Fest and in late 2013, offered up their latest album, 3 Second Memory. Rather than bash out boring loops in Ableton this awesome musical twosome build their sounds from the bottom up, playing around eight different instruments including saxophones, double bass, flutes, keyboards and panty of electronic beats.
Also making another London debut are Aka Aka & Thalstroem, Stil Vor Talent associated producers of groovy minimal house that have hooked up with trumpeter, Thalstroem, and produced a joint album titled ‘Varieté’. Their unusual, fresh and dreamy trademark sound and their live performances are highly regarded so this is yet another reason not to miss out on tonight’s musical magic.
Last but not least, Danish melodic deep house producer Kant, which means ‘edge’ in Danish, also plays, as does Jolyon, the technically excellent DJ and learned selector that reaches for deep house, tech and plenty in between. Both sure to work the crowd in their own ways, this is set to be a terrific and hugely memorable night in London.
