Everyone loves a good b2b combo, and this one will certainly not disappoint. After the release of their two-track collab EP, A-Trak and Baauer followed with a once-in-a-lifetime b2b fall tour announcement. Combining the live electro-house sounds of A-Trak with Baauer’s hip-hop infused bass is not an easy feat. Yet somehow, the two manage to rock the sh*t out of it.
Canadian DJ and turntablist A-Trak has had quite an interesting music career. His presence in the scene spans over two decades, with massive feats and even the creation of his own record label. Credited with jump-starting the careers of people we listen to today: Danny Brown and Flosstradamus to name a few. His latest (solo) track, “Believe” ft. Quavo and Lil Yachty, is the catchy tune you never knew you needed.
Baauer is a trap and bass producer and has made music since the wee age of 13. His sound includes heavy hip-hop influences; during his career, he’s featured countless rappers and hip-hop moguls on his tracks. One year ago, his album Aa released and featured artists such as M.I.A and Pusha T. Baauer’s remixes to tracks from artists in 2012 thrust him into one of the most talked about producer positions today.
The duo’s EP released via Fool’s Gold Records (A-Trak’s label) and was received quite well in the electronic music community. The tracks, titled “Fern Gully” and “Dumbo Drop,” ooze 90’s electronica nostalgia. In both tracks, you can hear bouncy jungle rhythms. Plus, they both contain some groovy beats that make you want to move! This back to back extravaganza is more than likely not going to happen again.
Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the bouncy, hip-hop bass sounds of Baauer b2b A-Trak.
