Nathaniel "Nate" Rathbun better known under his stage name Audien, is an American DJ, record producer and musician.[1][2][3] He produces progressive house, trance, and electro house.[4]

History[edit]

Audien hails from Mystic, Connecticut[5][6] to a musical household. His mother is a jazz aficionado. In 2008, he became introduced to electronic dance music through the trance songs in video game soundtracks. Fascinated by the sound of trance, he learned to recreate songs from Armin Van Buuren's 'A State of Trance' podcasts.[7]

At age 17,[7] Audien was first signed to Dutch producer and DJ Ferry Corsten's label Flashover Recordings. Flashover Recordings released Audien's first single, "Rise & Shine".[8]

Musical career[edit]

Audien has released many singles and remixes for electronic record labels including Enhanced, Perceptive, Armada, Black Hole, and Nervous.[9] His tracks have appeared on Corsten's Countdown, Tiësto's Club Life, Above & Beyond's Trance Around The World, and Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance compilations.[10][11]

In 2012, Audien began to include elements of progressive house into his music with the release of "These Are The Days".[12] Audien's August 2012 release, "Eventide," is noted for being played by Above & Beyond during their DJ set at the 2012 Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.[13] Audien's track "Sup" was featured by Dutch icon Hardwell on episode 87 of Hardwell on Air.[14][15] In 2013, Above & Beyond premiered Audien's track, "Wayfarer" as the first song ever played on Above & Beyond Group Therapy.[16]

In 2014, Audien played Tomorrowland.[17]

In 2015, Audien signed to Astralwerks[18] and released his debut EP called 'Daydreams' with the track "Rooms".[19][20] He received a 2015 Grammy Nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical for his remix of the Bastille (band) song, "Pompeii".[21] On March 2, 2015, Audien released the single "Insomnia".[22] "Insomnia" peaked at number one on the US Dance Charts.[23] His 2015 track "Something Better" featuring Lady Antebellum cracked the Billboard Top 40 in Pop Songs marking Audien's first appearance on a pop chart.[24] The track had already went to #1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart on September 26, 2015.[25] In 2015, Audien announced his 'Audacity' Tour [26] and played music festivals EDC Vegas,[27] EDC Brazil,[28] TomorrowWorld,[29] and Electric Zoo.[30]

In 2016, Audien performed at Lollapalooza's 25th year.[31][32] Audien released "Crazy Love" featuring Deb’s Daughter in August 2016.[33] The track hit #1 on the Mediabase Dance Airplay Chart twice.[34]

In 2017, Audien and MAX released the track "One More Weekend".[35] In January 2017, Audien's US Tour 'Feels Trip' was announced.[36] Audien is on the lineup for Electric Zoo 2017.[37]
