In Arnhem Land they call Baker Boy the ‘fresh new prince’. His totem is the Olive Python, his moiety is Dhuwa and his skin is Burralung/Gela boy. Raised in the remote NT communities of Yurrwi and Maningrida, 21 year-old Danzel Baker, aka Baker Boy, raps in Yolngu Matha language representing his bloodlines. A strikingly talented artist on an undeniable rise, Baker Boy kickstarted 2018 with two of his songs – Marryuna and Cloud 9 – winning their place in triple j’s Hottest 100. He has supported the likes of 50 Cent and Dizzee Rascal, played summer festival slots at Laneway, Golden Plains and WOMADelaide, and sold out his first national tour last June playing venues across the country. Black Magic features Baker Boy’s main man and song-writing collaborator Dallas Woods on guest vocals. The two met when Baker Boy was 17 and Dallas was 21. The two started writing songs for the first time and ignited the journey that catapulted Baker Boy to where he is now. They are staunch friends and continue to write together including Baker Boy’s recent hit single Mr La Di Da Di and brand new track BLACK MAGIC out on Friday 13th July 2018.
About this track...
Black Magic takes a sharp left from Baker Boy’s usual MO. Hard guitar in the chorus & raw lyrics holler his proud heritage in English & Yolngu Mata. Performed live the crowd get moshing as they remain conscious of Dallas Woods’ powerful flow about being young, black & gifted.
