REVIEW: Audien feat. Cecilia Gault - Higher out on Anjunabeats

Responsible for some of the iconic summer records on Anjunabeats including ‘Wayfarer’ and ‘Hindsight’, U.S. producer Nate Rathbun aka. Audien returns home for the sun soaker ‘Higher’.

The last 4 years have seen Nate become a radio and touring powerhouse across North America, with ‘Something Better’ feat. Lady Antebellum crossing over to the contemporary pop airwaves. A sought after remixer, Audien’s reworks of Bastille ‘Pompeii’, Michael Jackson ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ and Bruno Mars ‘Treasure’ became festival favourites.

‘Higher’ is a return to his classic Anjunabeats sound, an airy vocal track that showcases Nate’s talent for memorable top lines and heartening melodies.

 [item value="10"]Audien feat. Cecilia Gault - Higher [/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Audien returns on Anjunabeats with his very special track Higher feat. Cecilia Gault. The track is a straight forward melodic anthem that moves within the realms of progressive trance and house. Pulsating basslines, electro crunchy grooves and superb euphoric synthy riffs merged with stunning vocals by Cecilia with her retro house tone. The lyrics are empowering and perfect to light up the rave fire on any festival goers heart. Higher aims to raise us a little bit higher and it does this actually very easily and effectively without trying too much. #PureGold Love It[/content]
