Baauer shines in his Essential Mix debut

Baauer‘s debut album Aa landed a week ago, and so far the highly-anticipated LP has lived up to every bit of the hype. Aa is a colorful patchwork of Baauer’s sonic influences, fearlessly exploring the inner-workings of every genre that has guided his imagination. After surviving the “Harlem Shake” mania that catapulted him from bedroom producer to cultural phenom nearly over night, Baauer sat back and honed his craft until the he was ready to re-emerge. Aa resonates as Baauer’s personal experience in swapping ubiquity for autonomy, and now almost as if to complete his post – “Harlem Shake” renaissance, Baauer joins the Essential Mix ranks with his debut two-hour live session.

For those wondering if “Harlem Shake” would be played during the mix, if Baauer would cemented it as a part of his legacy, the track only makes an obligatory cameo during Pete Tong’s introduction. Once Baauer takes the reigns, he’s abundantly clear — that track isn’t even a blip on his radar. Instead, Baauer mixes tunes from Mr. Carmack, DJ Sliink, newcomer OshiHudson Mohawke, and Shlohmo matched with a healthy serving of hip-hop from Jay Z, Yung Thug, and Swizz Beatz. Tied together by cuts from the new record, the Essential Mix opens and closes in the same fashion as Aa, with Baauer and and fellow LuckyMe standout Rustie taking you to “Church” on the mixes intro and outro. Check the tracklist below and listen to the mix via the BBC iPlayer.
