Someone from Germany checked out the site yesterday. Thought that was cool, so here’s to the German dude –
My roommate told me about a kid from Connecticut named Nate Rathburn, aka. Audien. At age 17, his friends were applying for college while he was sending out demos to producers trying to make it. Pretty ballsy move. Now he’s playing shows in Vegas, LA, and New York. He’s been featured on Tiesto’s “Club Life” and Armin Van Buuren’s “A State of Trance”. Who needs college when you’re among a growing list of teenagers crushing it (see Martin Garrix)?
I am not well versed in EDM, really just started listening to it a couple of months ago. However, my roommate tells me that Audien’s first musical endeavors were rooted in trance, and he has gradually shifted his style to bring a progressive-house feel to his original mixes. He also remixes a Bruno Mars song, seemingly created by an equation as your run-of-the-mill pop song, and makes it interesting.
So none of this was relevant to the German dude. Sorry Hans, but here’s a freebie: Watch any video on YouTube, pause it, and without clicking anything else, type “1980”. A gift from your friends across the pond.
