Beatport Link: Audien – Iris
It has been one hell of a start to 2013 for Nate Rathbun, AKA Audien. His first huge single, “Wayfarer”, was not only the opening track for Group Therapy 001, but was also included in the coveted Anjunabeats Volume 10 compilation album. Audien has followed up that performance with another massive progressive/ big room tune, “Iris”. “Iris” has been getting a ton of attention since its preview earlier in the year, having made several appearances on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy radio show and in the sets of Madeon, Knife Party, and of course, Above & Beyond.
The production quality from this teenager is laughably good. Audien has already proven a true master of sound design, and this big room anthem is no exception to that. From its catchy and uplifting melody, unforgettable piano riffs, catchy stab-synth bass line, and euphoric build ups and breakdowns, “Iris” will put a huge smile on your face and a rush of happiness through your heart. It is truly a masterpiece of a track, and is sure to continue getting significant attention in the trance community. It is also another huge release for Anjunabeats, who have been absolutely destroying the electronic music scene in 2013 so far, with solid release after solid release. Check it out below, and be sure to grab it on Beatport if it tickles your fancy.
