Audaciously driven and already inaugurated to the melodic stronghold that is Anjunabeats, Connecticut’s Audien is far from your everyday American breakthrough. Back with vengeance to follow-up last August’s ’Eventide‘ EP, Audien kicks off 2013 with his second release for the label, ‘Wayfarer’.
In the same vein that Anjunabeats have continued to evolve with the times without compromising on the upfront quality of their releases, the young American producer finds a considerably comfortable middle-ground between the uplifting properties of Trance and fertile energy of modern Progressive House. Still driven by melodic progressions and full-bodied synth work, Audien sticks to his guns with yet another gem that highlights the essential talent that can still be found outside of Europe and its atypical Progressive House regions.
