If you think the Harlem Shake is a specialty dessert found only in Morningside Heights, then Baauer is not for you. If you have to question the use of a roaring animal sample in a piece of music, then Baauer is also not for you. However, if you appreciate an artist who challenges musical norms, alters perspectives and pushes the boundaries of traditional dance/club/electronic music, then Baauer is most definitely for you.

There are a couple of things we know about Baauer: one, he is from Brooklyn and two, he is redefining Hip Hop and House as we know it. To some, it feels like a natural union of genres, but not many artists can marry these two classic sounds with the precision of Baauer.

With his latest release, "Harlem Shake," Baauer is garnering the attention he deserves from seasoned professionals in the electronic music realm. "Harlem Shake" is a new classic and speaks to the redefinition of sound occurring in the dance world right now. There is a pardigm shift in the works and Baauer is among the proponents of change.

If you have declared this the official Summer of Dance Parties, Baauer is an essential addition to your party collection. Listen to "Harlem Shake" here and download it for future hip hop jam session enjoyment.
