Just Blaze & Baauer – “Higher”

By Tom Breihan / January 18, 2013

Last year, the Brooklyn-based dance producer Baauer built a name for himself with tracks like the blaring dance anthem “Harlem Shake.” He’s about to head out on tour with the great New York rap producer Just Blaze, who’s been trying his own hand at dance tracks lately. And now the two of them have hooked up for “Higher,” an absolute monster of a track that laces vocal samples from frequent Just Blaze collaborator Jay-Z into blaring TNGHT-style midtempo thunder. (I’d call it trap-rave if that wasn’t the worst genre name ever.) The track will obliterate your brain and convince you that it’s already the weekend, and you can hear it below.

I mean, holy shit.
