Besides being at the forefront of the electro-trap music movement, Brooklyn-based producer Baauer made headlines when his track "Harlem Shake" became the first viral sensation to debut on top of the Billboard charts thanks to calculating YouTube plays. An aspiring bedroom producer since the age of 13, Harry Rodrigues took the name Baauer to brand his electro-trap tracks, which combined crunk hip-hop beats, dance music tempos, and clever samples off video-sharing sites.
Football teams, firemen, college kids dressed as Power Rangers, and even SeaWorld animals were all seen doing the Harlem Shake, and the collective views quickly climbed into the thousands, then millions. Baauer benefitted from YouTube's new "Content ID" system, which allowed users to use the song with the producer and label benefitting from any ad revenue. At the end of February, as Baauer was at the point of announcing his debut EP for Mad Decent, along with a collaboration with hip-hop producer Just Blaze, Billboard changed their formula for calculating charts and added YouTube-streaming data to the mix of sales and radio plays. "Harlem Shake" debuted at number one the next week.
