Harrison Rodrigues is BAAUER. 29 year old New Yorker raised between London & Philly. One of his songs went viral and turned double platinum and since then he's managed to parlay it into one of the most surprising, hybrid careers of the decade. A DJ & producer working at scale at the intersection of dance and hip hop: there's no one who sounds quite like him.
In 2016, BAAUER, Adele and Drake were the only 3 artists to top 30 million streams in a week. In 2017, BAAUER & Drake were the only 2 artists to top 100 million streams in a week. His viral hit helped change chart rules indefinitely and he graced the cover of Billboard. Harry's debut album was announced via a Stephen Colbert late performance where he just sat on the sofa and hit the space bar. LuckyMe partnered with Apple Music to make videos by Hiro Murai & Thomas Rhazi along-side some of the greatest animators working today. With stand alone singles in 2018, BAAUER graced Spotify's Times Square Billboard.
In the 3 years since his debut album BAAUER's received accolades from New York Times, The Newyorker, Pitchfork, NPR, The Guardian, Complex & Fader.
Rodrigues has collaborated with Jay Z, Kanye West, Just Blaze, Pusha T, Future, A$AP Rocky, G Dragon, Kris Wu, Rico Nasty, Travis Scott, Missy Elliot, Jennifer Lawrence, Fetty Wap, Skepta, Joji, Lil Miquela, Rae Sremmurd & more.
BAAUER has a global fanbase that straddles dance & hip hop music. In 2020 he makes an awaited return with his sophomore album rooted in the crossover dance music he grew up listening to: Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, Basement Jaxx and Daft Punk. No one is working in this space where genres blend togeth- er - and yet no idea better encompasses the culture we live in. BAAUER's back and leading the pack once again...
