For more than a decade Blake Baxter has been DJing and traveling around the globe. As a producer, Blake has earned the reputation for producing steamy, deep, whispering tracks. As a teenager, Blake started out writing poems and experimenting with rhythm as a drummer. Blake is a Detroit native and has played with a few local groups in the early 80's and at that time he also started DJing. Blake soon became popular as a DJ playing for local promoter, the great Sterling. Blake was one of the first DJs to bring the underground sound to Detroit clubs. He fused alternative, D.O.R with acid house and dance. In 1985, Blake signed with the record label, DJ International, based in Chicago. DJ international released two tracks produced by Blake, one titled (in this house we jack) and the second (work your body). Two years later he produced a four track EP for KMS Records Detroit and at that time Blake was also the resident DJ at the Majestic Theater and club on Friday nights. At the time, it was the best Friday night in Detroit. A few years later Blake left the Majestic Theater and started to DJ in other local clubs and cities. In 1988, through 1989, Blake produced tracks for Incognito Records Detroit, releasing classic tunes like (sexuality) and (fuck you up).
In 1990, Blake released yet another classic four track techno EP on the Underground Resistance label Detroit. Blake was the first artist to release his own EP on the UR label and also the first on KMS. He was the only Detroit artist to sign with DJ international. In 1990, Blake started to tour in Europe as a DJ and live act. Blake has toured with Derek May, Kevin Saunderson and Underground Resistance, Juan Atkins, Joey Belterm and Jeff Mills, just to name a few. In 1991, Blake hooked up with Tresor Records in Berlin, Germany. Tresor released Blake Baxter's first solo album titled (Dream Sequence). Blake has spent years in Europe producing, performing and DJing and will continue to do so in 2003 and beyond.
