For his latest production, Dutch DJ / producer Bakermat takes on a true classic. With Madan (King), he remixes Salif Keïta’s 2002 record of the same name and does it with great flair.
Bakermat – Madan (King).
Lodewijk Fluittert, from Markelo (The Netherlands), as Bakermat is really called, manages to give this evergreen his own touch by adding, as he says himself, a touch of piano, saxophone, guitar, choir vocals and bass. The result is a finger-licking dance record, high in energy and ready to move dance floors worldwide this summer.
Salif Keïta – Madan.
The original Madan is a classic piece of Afrobeat, drawing influences from traditional Malian music and modern pop. Keïta’s remix by Bakermat keeps the danceable energy of the original while adding new elements that make it truly unique.
Bakermat – Madan is one remix that you don’t want to miss! Here is an extra pro DJ mix tip: Blending this one with Purple Disco Machine’s Wake Up is an excellent choice to retain energy levels and keep people in the same atmosphere for 2 or 3 tracks. By the way: this is not the first time this track got remixed, Martin Solveig among many others remixed the track long before the Bakermat remix.
Bakermat as a remix genius.
This is not the first time Bakermat has found success with a remix. His 2013 dance floor hit “One Day (Vandaag)” was a rework of Asa’s 2006 song “Be My Man”. With Madan (King), he looks to continue his trend of delivering huge dance tracks with a global appeal.
