Pics or It Didn't Happen: Just Blaze & Baauer's "Higher" Release Party

Blaze celebrates his new record by caking Baauer, Young Guru and Nick Hook get jiggy.

Much to the dismay of a few persons, Jiggaman did not show up at Baauer and Just Blaze's release party for "Higher," their new single that dropped yesterday on Priority Records. But there were plenty of models and bottles in the building—the exclusive Chelsea club 1OAK in the heart of New York Citayyyy—along with the two producers themselves and Jay Z producer Young Guru. Guru, a longtime friend of Blaze's and fellow Jay Z producer, effortlessly dropped hip-hop cuts in the way you would expect from someone who has been living for beats for over 15 years. Local favorite Nick Hook also took to the decks, after dousing himself and his friends in a bottle of Patron, and the night drew to a climactic close in the last hour when Blaze pulled an Aoki cake move and smashed a custom Higher sheet cake into Baauer's face. The fearless Kaitlin Parry of Shoot People captured it all in pics.
