It may only be March, but Bakermat has already dropped his second EP of the year in the form of Ballade. Hot of the success of his wildly impressive Games EP, the producer is back with another 2-track effort that delivers some soulful tunes that you’ll find yourself falling in love with in no time.
Drawing listeners in with gorgeously layered melodies, and slow, driving percussions, the title track is a somber piano ridden piece; elegantly blending ethereal operatic background vocals with pattering drum hits, roughly reminiscent of drifting raindrops.
The bookend to the Ballade EP is “Gone,” which features a slow, sultry saxophone riff ladled on top of delicately plucked strings. Both songs radiate effortless beauty, with each featuring the vocals of Marie Plassard, who many will recognize as the voice of the producer’s Games EP.
Fans should find plenty to love with this release, as both tracks are uniquely crafted and exude Bakermat‘s signature brand of laid-back sax-infused house.
