Who is the guy behind the music of Harlem Shake?
Baauer or @baauer on Instagram is the DJ from New York who composed the song.
Originator of the beastly trap classic “Harlem Shake,” Baauer (aka Harry Rodrigues) is quickly making a name for himself in the ever-expanding EDM community. An impressive series of releases has put the spotlight on the young Brooklyn-based producer, and his tracks have been spun by the likes of Diplo,Flosstradamus, and Rustie.
Ranked in the U.S. top 200 by the DJ List (and #9 in his hometown of New York City), Baauer signed with the LuckyMefamily in August of 2012, and made his debut for the label with Dum Dum, a minimal three-track 12-inch that announced his arrival on the scene. The unmistakable saxophone lead of the title track is one of the most well-known sounds in clubs today. The producer’s work seems custom built for DJs, with track lengths reduced to match the quick pace of live performance. Baauer’s resume to date has built up a great amount of anticipation for his first full-length EP.
