Baauer‘s known for his booming, trap-oriented, and at times chaotic sound; all of which have brought him a tremendous amount of success in a considerably short period of time. But with his latest cut, featuring the vocals of Aluna Francis, Baauer elects for a relatively dialed-down approach.
“One Touch” still possesses that big-scale dance music profile, yet simultaneously feels intimate and focused. This is primarily due to the sugary voice of Francis, and spacey sequences that actually allow the track to breathe. Listen below.
Here’s the scoop on the latest version of “One Touch”, which is almost entirely different with added verses by Rae Sremmurd and restructured production from Baauer. It’s pretty epic:
“I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met,” Baauer told The FADER. “The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said ‘you gotta give me something to work with’ and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA Vloading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded reaal good. :D”
