Just Blaze x Baauer: HIGHER
Baauer's next single will be released through Priority Records on August 13th. It's a collaboration with producer Just Blaze called “Higher” featuring JAY Z, which has been up on Just Blaze’s SoundCloud for six months (with over 1.5 million plays) but in honor of his performance this Sunday at HARD Summer we thought we'd give it a spin.
I’m sure you know Baauer’s story and success behind “Harlem Shake” which became a YouTube phenomenon and propelled Baauer to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 5 weeks and is one of the biggest selling singles of 2013. He was the first unknown artist to score a #1 Billboard Hot 100 generated mostly by streams after Billboard revamped the chart to include streaming numbers along with sales and airlplay.
Baauer is definitely one of the most exciting young DJ/producers on the scene. In addition to his own projects and touring, he has kept impressively busy with superlative remix work for artists including The Prodigy, No Doubt, AlunaGeorge and my personal favorite, Disclosure's "You & Me" featuring Eliza Doolittle.
