Baauer Just Blaze Jay-Z Priority Records

This Okayfuturist has learned that Priority Records, an imprint of Capitol Music Group, plans to relaunch as an electronic music label.  Their first release?  Just Blaze and Baauer‘s “Higher” featuring some Jay-Z vox.

Originally a hip-hop label started in the 80’s, Priority’s stable of artists included a few names you might recognize: Dr. DreIce CubeMaster P, N.W.A. and Snoop Dogg.  The historic label ceased to operate in 2004 with a only short reboot in 2006 to put out Snoop’s Malice in Wonderland.

This time around the future of Priority Records will see “a wide, innovative array of electronic and progressive music” and intends to “a home for producers,” as “[t]he emergence of the producer as an artist and brand within the global electronic music scene and beyond has heralded a paradigm shift in the way music is created, discovered and spread,” said Michael Cohen, Priority’s president.

Just Blaze and Baauer’s “Higher,” which is already at 1.6 million plays on Soundcloud, will officially release on August 13 on Priority.  Stream it here.
