We are just one day away from the anxiously awaited debut album release from Harrison Bauer Rodrigues aka Baauer, the man with two a’s in his name and the album title is one in the same. A few tracks have trickled from the vault where Aa is kept locked away. “GoGo!” “Day Ones,” and “Kung Fu,” have previously dropped, the last two respectively featuring some insane vocal guest spots. And just before the rest of this explosive album drops on the general public, comes maybe the most monster hit on the album.
There is some equation here to, “Paper Planes,” and Dipole’s involvement with MIA as something that made his career and changed the way the world looks at dance music, but there are too many words to speak about what that means to this release, and what Baauer’s track, “Temple,” means to the rest of this album, and what this album says about all of those things, and Baauer and music, and sort of everything all of that is about. Too many words for all of that, but just know, “Temple,” premiered as a Zane Lowe World Record, and anything and everything from the Baauer camp these days is so worth the praise it receives.
Aa is worldly sounds mixed with the vocals from all the corners of the earth to match, and a more perfect representation of that could not be in this track featuring MIA and G Dragon, and reminiscent of favela music of days lost. But really none of it was ever lost.
