Artist Bio
BAKER - BAKERACTED Growing up in the early Florida Electronic Dance Music scene, Gary Baker was a witness to ground breaking performances and has experienced many epic moments, which helped form his style as an artist. Always seemingly to be involved on some level he was lucky to get to take part in the many of the premier events of the time. These experiences in addition to being a part-time roadie for Rabbit in the Moon in the late 90’s, he traveled the US as they headlined many of the classic festivals with the top acts of the day. Honing his DJ skills at the house and after parties associated with those events, in the new millenium Baker started to venture out and bring his music to the masses. He got his start opening on the road for DJ Monk and other grassroots gigs and then shortly thereafter was added to the Hallucination DJ roster, becoming a staple act at such themed parties as Hallucination Before Christmas and Blood on the Turntables. After this exposure, he began to get booked at the most influential parties in Florida, including the Art of War series, and the Vibe and Ultra Music festivals. Breaking out as a Drum & Bass DJ, Baker does not limit himself to one genre, he has played out with DnB, Breaks, House, Nu Disco & Dubstep sets as well as all video DVJ sets, and has shared the stage with the who’s who of electronic music too extensive to list.
