Let me preface what i’m about to say with this tidbit from Baauer’s soundcloud page : “The love child of Brooklyn and the Internet, Baauer was born out of noise. A sound that began steeped in the 4/4 dance tradition, slowly took on hip hop tendencies until the two became one. ”
Sure enough, that’s a perfect description of Baauer‘s sound. In the vein of other acts such as Lunice and Vavlt Boyz , Baauer has developed a take on Electronic music with a clear and present Hip Hop influence, and as Bauuer’s own soundcloud page states, takes just as much from the UK Bass scene as it does from Southern Hip Hop, and i’d like to add, throws a tablespoon of Trap in the melting pot.
The joint in question, “Harlem Shake“, is a doozy of a future Trap beat that has been floating around in big name DJ sets for a hot minute, and now Baauer alongside Jeffrees has released it for FREE for your downloading pleasure. It’s a burner and as an amateur DJ, I will definitely be flinging this into my future sets as a secret weapon (Well not so secret anymore I guess).
So get to listening and downloading right below.
P.S. Baauer was kind enough to release another great joint in “Woah” alongside “Harlem Shake” , be sure to cop em’ both.
