Acid Education - something we at R$N towers are very much in favour of; and who better to provide it than a man who spent his youth in the Hacienda, Back to Basics and Soak while growing up in Leeds. Bakers Dozen is an alias of Simon Baker and an outlet for his love of everything house (whilst his BKR Projekt monniker takes care of the techno). Previously we were treated to Piano Lessons from Bakers Dozen, and now there's more new music in the form of Reaching, a proper groovy footstomper that harks back to the music of Baker's formative years.
We caught up with the man behind Bakers Dozen to discuss the 8 essential tracks for a proper acid education...
Bakers Dozen - Reaching (feat. England Brooks) is out on vinyl EP now and taken from the Forward To The Past 3 digital compilation dropping on Poker Flat on 20th November. Pre-order here
Lil Louis How I Feel
Still play this tune. Inspires me a lot, it’s so simple. Proper house music you can get lost in. They don’t make 'em like this anymore. Makes me want to go freestyle on my Juno. Timeless stuff.
