- Artist: Mike Baker The Bike Maker
- Track: Provocateur
- Producer: DJ Eleven
- Album: Provocateurs EP
Who's knockin' at the door? Mike Baker the Bike Maker, alias “the Provocateur.” Not glimpsed on our pages since last November, when he wrapped up the promotional push for Booth-hosted street album Mike Baker Plays It Cool with the release of Brainstorm, the artist returns to our pages with a fresh sound and a brand new project. This freshly-released EP standout and almost-title track draws heavily from hip-hop's disco infused beginnings, with DJ Eleven serving up a funky four-on-the-floor rhythm as the Bay Area emcee busts out some appropriately old-school flows. Fashion model/vocalist Blind Stab guests, engaging in some kitschy, catchy call-and-response with Mike on the hook. For this retro-informed jam, lead single Mike Check and more, cop Baker and Eleven's Provocateurs EP, released earlier this week for purchase on iTunes.
