Detroit’s Tim Baker (..lived until 04. April . 2021)

Tim Baker, the Detroit-born DJ and producer, died on Sunday 4. April 2021. Baker, born in Detroit, began DJing in 1984. A few years later, he’d secure a residency at the Nectarine Club alongside Jeff Mills. In the early ’90s, he launched a clothing line called Elephanthaus and began gigging around Europe, making a 1994 appearance at Tresor. Elephanthaus, a clubwear label, would eventually expand as a recording imprint, mostly serving as a home for Baker’s releases. He’d relocate to Chicago in 1998, launching a house-oriented label called Real Estate Records. Baker’s solo releases came out on labels like Ovum and Minifunk over the years, and he was a beloved father and supportive figure in the scene up to his passing.

BanBanTonTon | features Chris Coco & Luca Averna`s Sueño Mediterráneo

Chris Coco and Luca Averna`s Sueño Mediterráneo, on Minimalsoul Recordings, is actually more of a homage to the history of house, than a chilled-out affair. The opening Mare might be a mellow sundown Spanish stroll but the album’s ten tracks travel tempos all the way up to tribal-techno-esque bangers and back again. Touching on memorable proto Italo momentsearly Chicago relics, and `90s classics. Tunes that were no doubt staples during Chris` residency at Brighton`s Zap, The Coco Club. The distinctly danceable rhythms, topped with introspective melodies – deep with strings, sighs, sequences, and whistles – nostalgic echoes of rave. Garage divas, beatific bleeps, and the blissed out vibes of The Beloved’s Sun RisingHigh Waves is built on a beat borrowed from Vaughan Mason’s Raze.
