Bakermat, an alias for young Dutch producer Lodewijk Fluttert, had a quick rise. In just three months he gained a lot of views, likes and followers with his productions. He has always had an obsession with music, in many genres. From an early age the young Bakermat was into jazz and blues and discovered house music at the age of 12. By fanatically listening to every track that was posted on blogspots he had quickly built up a huge library. When he was 18, he went to the University of Utrecht to study Psychology. It was there that he discovered deep house and producing his own music.
His sets are filled with joy and happiness, and are always melodic. Saxophones, flutes, trumpets, Bakermat tries to use them frequently. The combination of these jazz instruments with deep house music is what makes Bakermat’s style unique. (from his Homepage Biography )
The song “One day ” has been in 2012 a No.1 summer hit in the Netherlands
