Arthur Baker is a bonafide legend of the music world and he is next up on Get Physical with a stunning new single featuring the vocals of Lumina.
American producer and DJ Baker is best known for his seminal work with artists like Quincy Jones, Afrika Bambaataa and New Order. He’s also released on Prince’s Paisley Park Records, remixed Pet Shop Boys and has DJ roots going back to the 70s, when he spun Philly Soul. To this day he cross pollinates electro, disco, soul, house and electronic music in wondrous ways, as he does here.
This new single, ‘Higher Power,’ is the sort of rich and musical track that will light up any dance floor, anywhere in the world. It has driving disco drums overlaid with exotic guitar riffs. Lumina’s afro vocals lend it a worldly feel and will get dancers going wild. The tension never lets up throughout, and it is a thrilling, ever absorbing trip that is open and expansive, with a mixture of organic and synthesised sounds all dancing round each other in loose limbed and intoxicating harmony.
Also included in the essential package are a driving instrumental dub, shorter edit and standalone acapella.
