Audien – “Iris”


Connecticut’s Nate Rathburn, or as you may know him, Audien, has got to be one of the more exciting young names in the world of progressive house and trance. The young producer/DJ Audien has had a number of releases on the Anjunabeats label so far bringing together his bubbling euphoric sound to make smashes like “Wayfarer.” Audien recently released “Iris” and while it’s not an official follow-up to “Wayfarer” there’s no doubt that this could have been the flip side to that single.  Audien manages to keep a signature sound without going stale.  Uplifiting melodies, an ever-so-slight electro bassline, and wet percussion make “Iris” an anthem for this summer’s stage.  It’s not a banger in the traditional sense, but it will surely lift dancefloors to new heights.
