A permanent fixture on the UK club scene and beyond thanks to a long list of releases for Playhouse, Get Physical, Cocoon and 2020Vision, Simon Baker’s debut album ‘Traces’ on the clear-sighted latter of these labels confirmed the deserved strength of his glowing reputation.
Pitched somewhere between disco and house, every track had the ‘what’s this one called?’ response when on our office stereo, whilst never once deviating from the deadly dancefloor rhythm of his DJ sets. And if you’ve never heard one of them, just check his podcast.
