Baauer made his name with slyly heavyweight trap songs, and while his debut album has plenty of low end, it also looks beyond the party. It's front-loaded with tunes suffused with echo and edginess; that goes equally for the slinky UK garage cut "Body," the 150-BPM banger "GoGo!" and the slow-motion "Pinku," which sounds like a hazy Daft Punk. "Day Ones" is a double-barreled blast of grime, the globe-trotting "Temple" pairs koto with 808, and "Make It Bang" explores Baltimore club. Thirteen tunes, 13 different pins in his world bass map.
