BIOGRAPHY

The name Baikal comes from the words ‘Bai Kyul’, which translates as ‘rich lake’. Lake Baikal is the most voluminous freshwater lake in the world, containing roughly 20% of the world’s unfrozen surface fresh water, and at 1,642m, the deepest. It is also among the clearest of all lakes, and thought to be the world’s oldest at 25 million years.

Baikal resides in Berlin and makes multi-layered electronic music for the heart, mind and feet. Preferably all at the same time and on his imprint Maeve, a joint venture with Mano Le Tough and The Drifter.

Baikal’s existence lies in the idea that the music itself, the abstract experience and the emotions it provokes should tell enough of a story to entertain you as the listener, and that the persona behind the artist is of lesser importance.
