Just as Baker Boy prepares for his first International Festival at Riddu Riddu in Norway before jetting back for two shows at Splendour in the Grass he drops a track with a political punch swathed in positivity. Black Magic is as political as they come yet the prince of positivity delivers it in his deadly uplifting style. Featuring his main man and song-writing collaborator Dallas Woods on guest vocals Black Magic hits your frequency on Friday the 13th.

 

Black Magic is inspired by legendary AFL player Nicky Wingma, and other sporting heroes who have stood up and let their raw talent speak for themselves. 25 years ago Nicky Winmar took a stance against racism at the conclusion of St Kilda’s game against Collingwood at Victoria Park. Throughout that day (17 April 1993) racial abuse had been directed by Collingwood supporters at Winmar and Indigenous team-mate Gilbert McAdam. St Kilda had a memorable victory, inspired by Winmar and McAdam who were clearly the best two players on the ground. At the conclusion of the game the racial abuse didn’t die down and in fact became even more vocal, so in response Nicky Winmar faced the Collingwood cheer squad, defiantly lifted his jumper up and pointed to his skin colour to signal that he was proud of his indigenous heritage.

Musically speaking Black Magic takes a sharp left from Baker Boy’s usual MO. Hard hitting guitar in the chorus and raw lyrics throughout the track holler out his proud heritage in both English and Yolngu Mata. Performed live this track gets the crowd moshing as they remain conscious of Dallas Woods’ powerful flow about being, “young, black and gifted.” The accompanying clip filmed on location in Melbourne by BraydenFunFilms is ‘dope’.

“This song is for all the other sporting heroes and role models in my life. Especially my dad and my

brotha boy collaborator Dallas who inspired me to rap in my tongue when I was 17, he was 21.” says Baker Boy.
