Baauer today unveiled the second single from his upcoming Planet's Mad LP, "AETHER," a haunting trap tune that was released alongside a video game-inspired music video directed by Actual Objects (Rick Farin and Claire Cochran).

"AETHER" is a dark, menacing trap number with ferocious breakbeats and thunderous 808s that sounds like it's straight out of an action scene from Blade Runner. The accompanying music video laces the track through an alien landscape, taking viewers on an audiovisual journey through the mind of one of the most forward-thinking producer in electronic music.

Along with "AETHER" comes a b-side track called "YEHOO," a quirky, moombah-inspired bass single produced in collaboration with fellow Portugese beatmaker Holly.
