The undiscovered gems keep shining at the Thema digital HQ! Our latest is from a very good friend and seasoned NYC underground talent: Isaac Basker. Isaac’s name may not be all that familiar to you house and techno heads reading this, but let’s just say that he’s got some miles behind him in the music biz. As one of the members of the underrated hip hop outfit The Incredibulls along with the legendary Chuck D, Isaac got a foot in the game pretty early on. As the Clinton era petered out his passions shifted from rap and turntablism to the dance floor where full-on house mania took hold. He’s had a handful of podcasts and gigs with small but respectable outfits all the while leaking some of his own bedroom burners out to the global ear. Those caught our ear and didn’t let go—and here we are. Isaac’s debut EP is a straight up exuberant house manifesto. He’s already developed a distinct sound built on strong grooves and bold, old school fashioned, off-kilter sampling. Come on a ride through his vibrant, bittersweet NYC soundscape: Found and Lost.
