Could Nasser Baker be the next huge talent unearthed by Objektivity boss Dennis Ferrer? We certainly think so. Displaying a real maturity in his productions and a distinct lack of vocal fear, Nasser delivers quality, time and again.
Nasser grew up in a musical environment of New Jersey, after his family relocated from California. Surrounded by gifted artists from an early age, Nasser was fed a diet of authentic 70s Soul, 80s pop and 90s Hip Hop and R&B, which all influenced the spirit of his music and his trademark big production sound.
At only 25 years old Nasser displays real musical maturity and a subterranean fearlessness in his productions. Mentored by house music master Dennis Ferrer, Nasser has released three EPs on the indispensable Objektivity label, as well as remixing Dennis iconic Son of Raw in 2016. His 2017 release on Objektivity, the ‘Just Like That EP’, dropped in time for his first Ibiza season, as a part of Dennis Ferrer’s Misfits Society crew.
Keeping it busy in between the original releases, Nasser has delivered a couple of stellar remixes for PMR, Objektivity, Nervous and more.
2018 marks Nasser’s debut on Circus Recordings with ’Say Something’ – his first full, self penned, and part sung, vocal single, combined with a intergalactic techno b-side that is absolutely not to be skipped over.
‘Say Something’ was instantly snapped up by Yousef after a demo was sent to him earlier this year. Big, nasty & pin sharp drums carry the original vocal throughout the track, as a playful narrative parties & dances throughout. Vocal hook after vocal hook interchange as the slamming 909 drums persist. As Yousef said, there is simply nothing else quite like it right now, and as Pete Tong said its the best vocal record he has heard in many years, confirmed an Essential New Tune on the spot. This year’s “Bigger than Prince”..? we think so too
Say something!!!Say something!!!
