Early this year, a new dance craze that made it to YouTube called Harlem Shake. What is Harlem Shake? According to Wikipedia, “Harlem Shake” is a song recorded by American DJ and producer Baauer. It was released as a free music download by Mad Decent imprint label Jeffree’s on May 22, 2012. This uptempo song which incorporates a mechanical bassline, Dutch house synth riffs, a dance music drop, and samples of growling-lion sounds.
