Baauer’s penchant for underground dance music has been unmistakable since the early days of his beat-making career. From the early 2010s with cult hits like “Dum Dum,” “Samurai,” and “Yaow!” to his phenomenon-inducing “Harlem Shake,” the Philly producer has continued to help usher in a new era of hip-hop and electronica. Now, four years after the release of his debut album Aa, Baauer has shared his sophomore album, PLANET’S MAD.

The new 12-track full-length is everything one would expect from the esoteric beatsmith: thick, shape-shifting synth work, thunderous basses, and thumping percussion. The producer ultimately injects a variety of influences into the album, sprinkling hints of drum & bass on “REACHUPDONTSTOP,” synth-pop on “HOME,” and more.

Alongside the album’s release, Baauer has also tapped Dominic Flannigan to create a visual accompaniment to the album. The 40-minute video was co-directed by Baauer himself and takes viewers across the universe while stopping at various planets.
