Most of the hullabaloo over “Harlem Shake” last year overlooked a key fact about the Brooklyn artist behind its meme-generating bass lines. And that is Baauer’s status as a rising producer in his own right, complete with the co-signs of legit folks like the Glasgow label LuckyMe. “One Touch VIP” seeks to rectify that by making AlunaGeorge sound as club-ready without resorting to tired EDM tactics. Considering how close we are to the weekend, the digital single couldn’t have dropped at a better time; between its bleacher-stomping breaks, woofer-wrecking rhythms and revved-up vocals, the track is bound to be a bonafide anthem by the time Monday hits.
