This is what I've been trying to say and, while not really emphasizing it here because I was drunk and trolling dps, this is how I see it. It's the same way I feel about Dismantle/"electric carnival", I think it's ****ing dope and has it's place in a set, but I wouldn't expect 90% people to enjoy an hour straight of carnival/4x4 styled dubstep. But when used appropriately, it can really invigorate a set with energy.

Comes down to the dj really. Sure, Baauer takes the weak way out with djing and does a pretty half assed job at it nowadays. But can you blame the kid? He is self admittedly a producer way before dj. It's the same opinion I have for Zomboy. Even though I don't like his tunes (and even less his ability as a dj), he says in interviews that he was and is primarily a producer, and that djing was something he took up after being successful with production because it was pressed on him. Skrillex did the same thing, he sucked ****ing *** a year ago on his controller, and nowadays he's throwing down some respectable sets on cdj's, at least in comparison to where he was when he was at the peak of his hype wave.

The way I look at it is this, dude has obvious production prowess, regardless if you enjoy the tracks he produces or the style of music, they are well produced. Basic? Perhaps, but they're well balanced and produced. While the "trapstyle" sound is huge now and is the gravy train he rode all the way to the bank, his break through with the trap sound could expose him to all sorts of artists or connections he never had before.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't dismiss his potential simply because he's a boss at making what's popular right now, the potential roads he's opened for himself are promising. I also don't quite understand the "sellout" argument, since what, 6 months ago, nobody knew the name Baauer, Harlem Shake was being broken internationally by Skream/Benga, and I guarantee he couldn't have filled a club to half cap. Social networks catapulted him into the spotlight faster than anybody thought possible, he's just rolling with it the best he can. He's simply responding to the demand of the people, and a lot of the new people in the scene don't have a high standard for the performer (can you blame them? They're coming from people like Nicki Minaj, Drake, and One Direction), they have a higher standard for the music and what it says about them being there than the actual show they're supposed to be watching.

Plausibly getting a release tomorrow, quite a few digital retailers listed these up before quickly being taken down, and the release date was tomorrow, so who knows?


Edit: Yup, released. Awesome, hopefully this is just the tip of the iceberg
