Baauer Turns Our Music High

May 24, 2016
Post Image

Harry Bauer Rodrigues, a.k.a. Baauer, has been producing dance music since the tender age of 13, but it wasn’t until 2012 that this colossal trap artist officially exploded onto the dance music circuit with his debut on LuckyMe Records. His infectious, 808 infused production style first reached the masses with his three-track, 12-inch LuckyMe EP, entitled Dum Dum, and only continued to gain footing with thunderous, crunk hip-hop releases like “Infinite Daps” with RL Grime, and remixes of Flosstradamus’ “Rollup” and What So Not and RL Grime’s “Tell Me.” On top of this already exceptionally stellar musical resume, the brightest moment in Baauer’s career thus far came in 2013 when his viral track “Harlem Shake” debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and was later awarded Dance Song of the Year and EDM Song of the Year at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. His collaboration with legendary hip-hop acts Just Blaze and Jay Z, “Higher,” followed suit, making for a monumental year for Baauer. Since then, Baauer has only furthered his musical exploits with 2014’s five-track EP, ß, and most recently, the release of his full length studio album, Aa.

Baauer will grace the stage at EOS Lounge on Friday, June 3rd for an intimate and bass heavy performance. Tier 1 tickets for this 21+ event are already sold out, but Tier 2 and 3 tickets can be purchased here! And be sure to head to our Facebook event page to RSVP and check out details for the show.

What So Not In Our Backyard

February 18, 2016

Hailing from the sandstone bedrock that is Sydney, Australia, ‘What So Not’ (formerly a collaborative project between electronica breakthrough act Flume and its remaining member, the eclectic musical powerhouse Emoh Instead) set their sights on conquering the music world with uniquely electrifying, high intensity live shows and a sound that transcends genre molds and BPMs. Their infectiously innovative take on electronic music production has since caught the attention of dance music heroes like Major Lazer, Skrillex, A-Trak, and Flosstradamus. And with boundary blurring, pacemaking crossover tracks like “Jaguar,” “High You Are,” “The Quack,” “Touched” and their monstrous collaboration with RL Grime, “Tell Me,” What So Not has quickly become a highly coveted, world renowned dance music phenomenon in its short 5 year life.

Despite WSN’s poster child, Flume, dropping out of the equation early last year, Emoh Instead has been holding the namesake down properly since adopting the project by dropping their tunes at every major festival around the world and continuing the evolution of the What So Not brand beyond just the music. Now standing as Emoh Instead’s solo venture, Emoh has been focusing on the next chapter of What So Not by collaborating with various musicians like RL Grime, George Maple, Dillion Francis, Skrillex, and 1970s rock band Toto, as well as teaming up with multiple visual artists and creative minds to submerse live crowds in a complete, one-of-a-kind, What So Not experience.

Luckily for us, this globe trotting, one-man dynamic is being transported to our backyards on Thursday, March 10th for a rare, intimate show at EOS Lounge. Tickets will sell out fast, so be sure to grab yours when they go on sale Friday, February 19th at 10 am here!

Flying To Europe With What So Not

September 25, 2014
Post Image

The Afro-beat, dub house thunder from down under, What So Not just released an epic new mix entitled “Flying To Europe” to kick off his October-November European tour dates. In true What So Not fashion, this mix is dripping with the signature swanky style and cool and laid-back mixing we’ve all come to know and love. The structure of this mix is amazingly diverse, as it encompasses both ends of the spectrum, from low-tempo sexy beats to party starting, head bobbing tracks, while still managing to be silky smooth with every transition. This spot-on hour long mix is one we’ll have bumping through our speakers for a while.
