Baauer's got a new EP coming out next week, and the first track is a fiery electronic / hip hop crossover track featuring AlunaGeorge and Rae Sremmurd. Listen to the official SoundCloud audio stream above.
Combining the sweet voice of London's Aluna Francis with the hard edged raps of Mississippi duo Rae Sremmurd is a fantastic combination, and Baauer has delivered an infectious melodic track with a killer beat. Here's what Baauer had to say about the unlikely collaboration with The Fader:
I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met... The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said 'you gotta give me something to work with' and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA V loading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded reaal good. :D
