Connecticut dwelling Nate Rathburn, aka Audien is a true master of big-room melodic trance music, as shown by his catalog of releases on Above and Beyond’s label Anjunabeats. His latest track is already number 1 on the beatport trance chart, and its easy to see why.
Blending Audien’s trademark high-energy intro with an analogue style piano and pad breakdown followed by a genuinely massive uplifting chord progression and drop. The chords are the stand out feature of the track, at the same time big, unhinged, floor filling but also somehow calm and tranquil in a style that is truly Audien’s own. If Audien continues in this vein, and with his more electro-tinged tracks on Trice Recordings, EDM could have a new superstar.
