Artist Of The Day: Baauer

In today's EDM world, trap has taken hold of the hearts of millions. The big-bassed sound, the sluggish hip-hop beats, and the heavily distorted upper end make any club go crazy at the mere hint of anything trap. Artists who create this big-bodied sound seemingly make their careers overnight, and both huge bro producers (Dillon Francis) and serious "dark side" DJs (Hudson Mohawke & Lunice, a.k.a. TNGHT) have taken a stab at the genre. That being said, a name to look out for on the dance side of things is Baauer. The 23-year-old has already had releases with Diplo's Mad Decent label after gaining a huge following on his own merit on Soundcloud, and although he's only released a few songs so far he's seen huge support come his way already. A good example of the talent he displays on a consistent basis is his remix of "Rollup" by Flosstradamus. A rap sample and very short vocal clip fall on top of extremely heavy kicks and typical hip-hop claps, and it's clear that it's a song made for one purpose: to destroy dance floors. All of Baauer's songs have accomplished that feat, and it's clear that he'll be going places in the near future.
