In April and May 2020 Noah had two solo shows planned. Of which one in Salzburg with the Rudolf Budja Gallery. Due to the Covid 19 crisis, those shows were canceled so we've presented the works digitally as part of a VR exhibition.
Music is stitched directly into the fabric of her life. “I have synaesthesia,” she says, smiling, “so when I write, the process is very visceral and visual. I work with a feeling.” That translates into a knack for storytelling which can stun you into silence. And, on Harvest Time, the followup to Cleo, Charlotte shows no signs of letting up. These are songs written with an honesty that can’t be neatly placed into a box. Rather, they beautifully tell a story of rebirth, growth, self-belief and empathy.
Charlotte Dos Santos exists in a lane all her own. As a fiercely independent producer, singer, composer and arranger, she takes full ownership over her art, imbuing it with feather-light vocals one moment and a rumbling piano line the next. Her warm, emotive and jazz-inflected songwriting weaves seamlessly between themes of identity, womanhood and human connection. Since debuting with hugely critically acclaimed 2017 EP Cleo, she’s earned recognition from the likes of The Fader, Pitchfork, Bandcamp and Pigeons & Planes, recorded a coveted COLORS session, been a Newcomer of the Year Norwegian Grammy Award nominee and picked up co-signs from Raphael Saadiq, Outkast’s Big Boi and others.
Live music by RAS and Organized by Goalgirls Berlin, the Danish brand SOUNDBOKS celebrated their launch in Berlin with Baketown. The brand developed high quality bluetooth performance speakers, which they introduced to the German market at this occasion. We curated and hosted the evening and booked a dj set by Noah himself and a live performance by RAS.
During the prestigious Art Basel fair in Miami beach last December 2019, Noah Becker had his first solo exhibition on US soil. Hosted by the renowned Rudolf Budja Gallery, Becker showed 10 large scale paintings. Supported by Beats by Dre and BAM Berlin the opening event counted on acts such as duendita (NYC), Jazz ensemble Onyx Collective (NYC) and the UK dj duo Bonesoda.
Taylor McFerrin is the somewhat elusive Multi-intsrumentalist Producer responsible for the Cult Classic “Broken Vibes EP” and the Widely Acclaimed Brainfeeder Released LP “Early Riser”. His music is known for pushing the boundaries of Soul, Electronic and Hip-Hop production using his unique of collection of Vintage Synths, Drums Machines and Psychedelic Effects.
In the past few years he has collaborated with musical giants such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Robert Glasper, Thundercat, and Anderson .Paak. But in 2019 he looks to expand his range as he takes on the lead vocalist roll for his upcoming Full Length Album titled "Love's Last Chance". As he describes it: "This Album represents what I've always been building towards...I knew the final piece to the puzzle would be for me to start singing. Now it finally feels like i can share a fully realized version of my of the Music in My Mind"
We hosted a dinner for Haebmau Agency with a live concert by duendita.
Baketown started as a studio and a gathering of several talented musicians and musical projects that were somehow orbiting around the same space in time. Many reasons to celebrate followed; releases, new bands that formed and friends that visited from out of town. Many ‘Baketown parties’ came out of that process slowly becoming a platform for live music and new alliances. A forming moment for that was the collective Baketown concert we did in the Berlin Planetarium which was a very sweet showcase of what we are about. Artists presenting their own work but blending into each other's projects and supporting them musically. Adding the visual aspect that the Planetarium offered we managed to really include all facets of what we were exploring. From there, taking bookings outside of the studio and to other stages of all kinds was a natural next step. If you're looking for good music; we can help you out with that x.
