Bakermat – Teach Me (MK Remix)
Bakermat‘s first big hit was “One Day (Vandaag),” which sampled Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Yesterday, he released MK‘s remix of his single “Teach Me” on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The song samples Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Shirley Caesar’s “Teach Me Master.” Bakermat features her powerful vocals prominently throughout the track, and MK wisely declines to alter them in any significant way. Noticeably absent on the remix are the strings that gave the original instrumental so much of its character; instead, MK lets his signature tones take over the track. It’s a brave and rewarding decision that allows the two versions to be distinctly different — but similarly amazing — songs.
