Bakermat’s previous singles “Lion” and “Do Your Thing” paid homage to the electronica sounds of classic acts like The Basement Jaxx, The Chemical Brothers and Moby and the Dutch-based producer goes further down the road of vintage electronic music on “Partystarter.” A blend of rock, surf and big beat, Bakermat’s newest single will remind fans of legendary cuts such as Groove Armada’s “I See You Baby” and Fatboy Slim’s “Rockefeller Skank” – but with a contemporary twist.
“Partystarter” is built around a raging surf guitar, chubby beats, rhythmic hand claps and a clashing of pianos, bongos and cowbells. Throw a sick rap over the top and you’ve got a Bonafide party starter on your hands. Party on with friends, family or by yourself – this music is versatile and kicks it.
“Partystarter is my most experimental track to this date. I’ve never produced a track this fast, loud and heavy before in my life. It came from my burning desire to dive into the studio with real rock artists and create something totally unique, combining elements of Rock, Metal, Hip Hop and dance all together. It’s also the first time most of the elements in my song are completely analogue, recorded with imperfections that give it a human touch. For me this track is the ultimate party anthem, something I want to hear when I’m feeling euphoric and want to dance in a crowded room full of equally euphoric people.” – Bakermat, October 2018
