Earlier this year, electronic heavyweights Baauer and A-Trak announced a short run of back-to-back performances slated for the fall. The pairing seemed too good to be limited to a tour so new music from the LuckyMe mainstay and Fool’s Gold head honcho had to be on the way.
Now, the two superstar producers have joined forces for the first time, dropping off two tracks ahead of their stage-sharing debut. With “Fern Gully” and “Dumbo Drop,” Baauer and A-Trak find the common ground between their respective production styles, proctoring two groovy club cuts that were designed to bring a little fun down to the dance floor.
Catchy, upbeat jungle inspirations flourish on “Fern Gully,” a set tool that’s perfect for beachside bonfire dance parties. Things pivot slightly on “Dumbo Drop,” roped together by off-kilter clinks and breaks. Free of explosive drops and pitched down sample work, Baauer and A-Trak deliver two quirky cuts that mesh both of their styles without taking themselves too seriously.
