A typically boring Friday afternoon suddenly became a little more intriguing today due to the appearance of a new Audien tune. If you read EDMTunes on a regular basis, you’re probably aware that we are very big Audien fans around here, so even this short two minute preview was enough to get us properly excited prior for the weekend. This time around, Nate Rathbun has taken a stab at remixing one of those radio hit, potential-one-hit-wonder, tracks of 2013 – Bastille’s “Pompeii.”
After venturing into big room house territory with “Elysium,” this remix goes back to what Audien does best: that progressive, uplifting house sound that saw him become one of dance music’s brightest stars in 2013. Featuring the hook-heavy vocals and melody of Bastille in the breakdown, “Pompeii” really takes off in true Audien fashion at the release, harking back to the “Wayfarer” sound that brought the youngster into the spotlight in late 2012.
