Are you ready for My Baby?
It hasn’t taken long for Amsterdam based psychedelic, shamanic trio My Baby’s swampy blues and funk-inflected sound to cast a formidable spell, taking the world by storm.
Over the past 12 months, Dutch brother-sister-duo Sheik (drums) and Cato van Dyck (vocals) and New Zealand guitarist Daniel “daFreez” Johnston have had their mojo working overtime and are rightly celebrated by Q Mag, Clash Magazine, Complex Magazine, The Sunday Express, Classic Rock and Artrocker amongst others as well as enjoying national airplay on BBC Radio 6, Radio 2 and over 60 regional radio stations!
“My Baby serve up acid-fried country stompers that will haunt your dreams for weeks.” – Q MAG
My Baby plays a brand of psychedelic blues, folk and funk with a tribal dance groove. It’s a sound inspired by old blues and folk music, but played with the rawness of sixties and seventies soul and funk and an edgy trance like infusion of West African desert blues, Moroccan Gnawa and Indian ragas.
“It’s rare for a band playing live to create the kind of vibe normally reserved for top name dance DJs but My Baby nailed it.” – The Argus
After the release of their second album “Shamanaid’ to much acclaim, MY BABY has been spreading their transcendent, mesmerizing live act to the approval of audiences worldwide, featuring on renowned festivals such as Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Wilderness, Sziget and Lowlands – playing over 200 shows in 2015 alone.
In their own words: “Shamanaid is in our imagination a drink or magic potion used in a shamanistic ritual. Music is also an important part of those rituals. Repetitive beats and melodies are used to get into a trance, we always try to achieve some- thing akin to that with our music.”
“Psychedelic tapestries of sounds to drilled down beats, classic songwriting to a keen exploration of sound.” – CLASH
Be ready for a psychedelic blues trance frenzy.
