Harlem Shake fad thrills US DJ behind it
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The up-and-coming Brooklyn DJ behind Harlem Shake said on Monday he's thrilled to see his cutting-edge electronic dance music (EDM) track going viral in a very big way.
"Honestly, (I'm) just happy to see people go crazy to my stuff," Baauer told fans during a two-hour ask-me-anything session on Reddit.com as more and more Harlem Shake memes kept finding their way onto YouTube.
"It will definitely create lots of hype but thats not something I worry about," he wrote during the online chat.
"The viral craze was something totally out of my control. I see it really positively. At the end of the day lots of new people are listening to my music. I'm hoping that my music will speak for itself."
