Review: With his historic contribution to global culture "Harlem Shake" hanging over him, Baauer steps up with a new EP that shows off his talents across a wider spectrum of production duties. "One Touch" gets into a steamy R&B groove complete with vocals from no less than AlunaGeorge and Rae Sremmurd, before "Floreana" flips the script with a delirious, tropical inflected club cut. "Boog" works in some earthy Latin samples around a primal drum beat arrangement that speaks more to Baauer's reputation for attention-grabbing bass music, while "Swoopin" ramps the energy up with a thoroughly modern twist up of dubstep hype and trap swagger.
Review: It's here, the man behind that track "Harlem Shake", now throws us a full length on Glasgow based imprint LuckyMe, but he's matured a lot since that infamous track. The trap poster boy explores a varied selection of beats and feats on Aa, we particularly enjoyed the collaborations on here such as the full frontal assault of "Day Ones" feat Novelist and Leikeli47, the sombre yet sexy street sound of "Way From Me" featuring Tirzah, the exotic bass heavy swagger of Temple featuring the return of MIA with G DRAGON and "Kung Fu" featuring Pusha T & Future's street knowledge: speaking some truth proper!
Review: LuckyMe continue their efforts to uncover the producers existing between the genre gaps with the debut release proper from Baauer, who has already appeared on a recent Mad Decent compilation as well as providing party starting remixes for Flosstradamus and B.YRSLF's Obey City. Providing the perfect taster for interested parties, "Dum Dum" is a short but sweet combination of slick trap rhythms, mangled vocals and sub filled with low-end grunt.
