Following his recent release on the See Double VA, rising talent Josh Baker finds a home once again on Luca Cazal and Brigante’s imprint with his Explore EP. Original FUSE London resident Rich NxT is also onboard to deliver an elevating remix.
First supported by Romanian master Barac, title track Explore is a surefire weapon for the dancefloor. JAXN’s breathy vocals effortlessly complement the peak-time bass and glistening hi-hats. On the B-side, Rich NxT adds a funkier bassline and light keys for his rework of the title track. The EP closes with Black Lines, a more formidable number with Baker employing darker elements into his production. The talented producer explains “ after receiving some exceptional vocals from JAXN, ‘Explore’ wrote itself. I wanted to create a real peak-time song, one suited for all spaces and I’m happy to see it get consistently road-tested at DC10. ‘Black Lines’ is a moodier acid track that I feel compliments ‘Explore’ massively.”
Since the tender age of 16, Josh Baker's passion and enthusiasm for house music has grown from strength to strength. The young Manchester producer also curates his own successful night, You&Me, which has since gone on to take place in Leeds, Newcastle and Ibiza. His musical output has garnered support from big names such as Apollonia, Richy Ahmed, Ben Rau and Rich NxT.
