"Harlem Shake" is a song that was recorded by American DJ and producer Baauer. It has become a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.
On May 22, 2012, Baauer had his song, Harlem Shake, released by the record label, Jeffree's of Mad Decent.
The song consists of a mechanical bassline, Dutch house synth riffs, a dance music beat drop, and sound effects of lions growling. The lyrics are sampled from Plastic Little's "Miller Time" and Hector El Father's "Las Terroristas".
The song usually references the popular hip-hop dance in Harlem, known as the Harlem Shake, which consists of making jerky movements with the arm and shoulder.
However, the dance that's associated with the song was based on the Internet trend, popularized by a video , made by Filthy Frank. It mostly consists of a person dancing to the song in a zany constume, when later, as the beat drops, a multitude of people dance to the song, all in zany outfits.
