Baauer made his BBC Radio 1 essential mix debut last week with a massive two hour set amidst cries from every corner of the music writing world that trap is dead. A shining example of what the genre used to be, and could still be, his essential mix is one of the most interesting and diverse 2 hours of trap you can find today. Similar to Bassnectars’ immersive music mixtapes, (another one of my favorites) his eclectic style shines and his samples range from Kanye to Purity ring to Kaskade. Never boring, and continuously surprising, this is one of the best essential mixes I’ve heard yet. With this release Baauer proves that trap music is alive and kicking and has solidified his place among the top DJs in the world. Sold.
