PREMIERE: Baauer Speaks With Music Talks on “Harlem Shake,” His Production Process, and the First CD He Ever Bought

Without a doubt, 2013 should be Baauer‘s year. “Harlem Shake” was an undeniable banger that lit a fire underneath the burgeoning trap scene, and helped push him ahead of the pack. He released a superb 12″ on LuckyMe, has been featured on Benji B’s show on BBC Radio 1 numerous times, has the Mad Decent stamp of approval, and is collaborating on new material (and touring) with Just Blaze. DAD hopes you already know all of that, though.

Music Talks, who have already interviewed the likes of Avicii, Mac Miller, and Macklemore, sat down with Baauer before a recent gig and spoke with him about a number of topics, from the massive “Harlem Shake” to if he’s had an “I made it” moment yet. You also get to see how bubbly his personality is, and how infectious his live performances can be.
