Simon Baker – Traces

I’m really enjoying this record at the moment (click the link, right click the play symbol, copy the link location and paste into the Spotify search field)

Simon Baker has been responsible for some excellent music over the last few years, Plastik and The Trick being two that really stand out.

This, I belive is his first studio production album and what a rich and varied collection it is, ranging from the outright dancey (L Train) to the more interestingly vocalled (think¬† Matthew Dear) Let Me In (my current favourite). There’s even some jazz piano in there….

As part of the ever excellent Ralph Lawson’s 2020Vision label, we’ve seen Mr. Baker DJ several times now (most recently at the sadly under attended album launch at the mUmU night at Liverpool’s CUC a few weeks ago) and very good he is too.

I’m sure we’ll allow him to entertain us again, especially if he plays his own tracks.
