Legendary hip-hop producer Just Blaze and rising-star DJ/Producer Baauer will release their collaboration Higher featuring Jay Z on August 13. The track has been building underground buzz since being posted on Just Blaze’s Soundcloud six months ago and has since garnered over 1.5 million plays.
The collaboration between Grammy Award-winning DJ/Producer Just Blaze and Brooklyn DJ/Producer Baauer was sparked earlier this year when the two were on a co-headline tour. Just Blaze (Justin Smith) is best known for his production work for hip-hop legends Jay Z, Eminem and Kanye West. 24-year-old Baauer (Harry Rodrigues) made his debut in May 2012 with the dance-floor anthem Harlem Shake. In February 2013, the song went on to create an even bigger cultural impact, becoming the catalyst for a YouTube and internet phenomenon. Harlem Shake is now one of the best-selling singles of 2013.
