About

Born in Darwin and raised in the remote Northern Territory communities of Milingimbi and Maningrida, Danzal Baker aka Baker Boy is the freshest new hip-hop talent to emerge from Australia. Young, strong and proud Baker Boy raps in English and Yolngu Matha language representing his Arnhem Land family.

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.

Baker Boy is a multidisciplinary talent working across rap, dance and acting. He hopes to inspire younger generations to embrace their culture and become leaders in their communities.

Fresh from winning the 2019 National Indigenous Music Award (NIMA) for Artist Of The Year, the Melbourne based artist rounds out his stellar year with the release of his new single ‘Meditjin’ featuring New Zealand rapper JessB.

Baker Boy says, “Music is the best meditjin (medicine), it brings everyone together, makes you want to dance, love, laugh, vibe and feel and I wrote Meditjin with just that in mind. It's about making people feel the music and expressing themselves.

For ‘Meditjin’, Baker Boy returned to recording with producer Jerome Farah who produced his earlier singles, ‘Marryuna’, ‘Mr La Di Da Di’ and ‘Black Magic’. Mixing duty was left in the hands of Andrei Eremin whose recent credits include Sampa the Great, G Flip and mastering the mega smash hit from Tones and I, ‘Dance Monkey’.
