Bakar is quite simply one of the most exciting artists in Britain right now. Following two show-stopping mixtapes, cosigns from several members of music royalty, modelling campaigns with Louis Vuitton, Prada and Virgil Abloh, and a single that topped a Billboard chart in the US.

Growing up, Bakar was a fan of hip-hop music, but at the age of 14 he had an eye-opening experience when he was introduced to indie music. Since that day, Bakar knew that his artistry was much bigger than just one genre of music.

His debut mixtape¬†Badkid¬†premiered in May 2018, featuring the hit single ‘Big Dreams’. The 11-track project captured Bakar’s mastery in creating fresh beats and disrupting genre stereotypes.

Bakar released his debut album Nobody’s Home in 2022, and then his second album, Halo, in September 2023.

Bakar’s music could be described as a melting pot of indie, rap, rock, and punk.
