After months of waiting for THE artists who is a forerunner during The Summer of Trap to come to the windy city and throw down, Mr. Harlem Shake himself took over The Mid last night and put on the performance of the year at a venue that brings thru the best talent the industry has every single weekend. With Maker, Dani Deahl (yet again happy birthday girl!), the always tired and true Zebo, and another debut for Jim-E Stack all taking turns doing work on stage, the night was on a whole other level of insanity long before Baauer graced the stage at the 2:30 mark. We were guaranteed that Baauer would set The Mid on fire after the first two tracks and it was more like bombs on the trap variety were dropped right off the word GO. Dropping everything from Fu*k This by Munchi, Higher Ground by TNGHT, and of course the banger of the summer Harlem Shake, Baauer played for a crowd that kept feeding off his high energy and left everying breaking a sweat from the floor to upstair and backstage. This WILL NOT be the last time he graces this city and we will be looking forward with great anticipation for the next appearance. We will be posting more video’s from the night on our Youtube channel so check it out and here is a brand new remix that Baauer just came out with for your audible pleasure! Enjoy mes Amis

Big thanks to Face Melt (Nigel), Mac & Smash (Bernice), The Earmilk Chicago crew, Miranda Wright and everyone at React last night.
