House aficionado and Dutchman Lodewijk Fluttert is better known in my book as “Bakermat”. The main reason that I love him, I never get bored of his productions. People tend to think that house music is so repetitive and monotonous, many people grow tired of it after a few tracks have played out. But alas, a breath of fresh air and a little jazzy life is what Bakermat brings to his productions. Most of his tracks feature classical instruments, mainly with jazz influences, which not many electronic artists are willing to do. From french horns to the saxophone and even wind instruments (flute, clarinets) are essential parts of Bakermat’s discography. For me, this adds a calming element to the house scene, which can get intense at times. I’d say the closest comparison to Bakermat would be a Big Gigantic reference, because of the obviously instrumental correlation, but the feeling is more soothing and light when it comes from the Dutchman’s portfolio.
