On June 15th, 2019, the LEGEND Arthur Baker rolled through Soulelujah. Arthur ran through a set of his own material and the crowd reveled in his signature sounds. The tape was rolling, so lets do some time traveling and check it out.
Born in Boston Massachusetts, Arthur Baker launched his musical career as a disco dj, started by spinning 45s, pre remixes and 12 inch discs. He graduated to being among the most visible and widely imitated of the early hip-hop/house record producers, masterminding breakthrough experimentation with tape edits, sampling and synthetic beats on such records as “Planet Rock” (winning the Billboard Trend setter award in 1983), New Order’s “Confusion”, Rockers Revenge’s “Walking On Sunshine”, Freeez’ “IOU”, New Editions’s “Candy Girl” and his own break dance classic “Breakers Revenge”.
