Wow, what a week it was for young star AUDIEN. From his Grammy nomination for his remix of Bastille’s “Pompeii” all the way to getting signed to a legendary record label, and much more in between.  Reality has become such an amazing thing for this mystic, Connecticut native.

AUDIEN, also known as Nate Rathbun, is already a veteran of countless worldwide festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowworld, Mysteryland.  For those who have attended these events and caught his set, you should be very familiar with his remix, “Pompeii.”  This track was recently nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical” category. Impressively enough, this is not the first nomination that Nate has received. He was also nominated for “Best New Artist of 2013” by SiriusXM as well as very frequent Beatport top charts.

But wait, there’s more!  AUDIEN has signed with NYC-based dance music label Astrawkwerks; part of the Capitol Music Group.  He has not only gained an exclusive recording contract, but also has new music planned for 2015.  We can all rest easy knowing that he is in good hands; the hands of which have helped drive the music of other crossover artists such as Duke Dumont, Porter Robinson, Eric Prydz and tons of others to new heights.

“We are truly honored to have Audien join the roster at Astralwerks. In a short amount of time Nate has crafted a sound that is unique to him – no easy feat; his outstanding talent and skill as a musician and producer is matched by his dynamic personality and boundless energy. It’s very exciting to have home grown talent of this caliber coming right from our backyard in Mystic, Connecticut.”- Glenn Mendlinger, General Manager, Astralwerks

AUDIEN has just finished his very first headlining tour AUDaCITY in partnership with Insomniac and Live Nation.  Along the way he played sold out shows at New York’s Irving Plaza, LA’s House Of Blues and the highly recognized Fillmore in San Francisco.  With this tour and huge festivals already under his belt, it is so exciting that AUDIEN will be joining Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub in Las Vegas as an exclusive resident in 2015.

“We are thrilled to welcome Grammy nominee Audien to the Marquee family for 2015. Marquee is a place where our guests can let go, have fun and celebrate, and his uplifting tracks are the perfect fit for that experience. We believe Audien is an artist who represents the future of EDM.” – Jason Strauss, TAO Group Partner

Crazy how fast things can happen sometimes, especially all in a week!  This talented producer has only just begun his journey and there can only be more incredible things to come.  Keep a lookout for new music, news, shows, etc. as well as his soon to be partnership with 808 Audio, owned by Voxx International Corp.  This new partnership will be launching the 808 Performer Headphones in 2015; working very closely AUDIEN hopes to create quality headphones that both the performers and music lovers can enjoy.  These headphones will be showcased in January 2015 at CES in Las Vegas.

“808 audio is so happy to be working with Audien. He is an artist who truly cares so much about the product he produces and that has translated into a great relationship as we developed the 808 Performer headphone in 2014. We look forward to working even closer in 2015 and expect many successes for both of us”. – Ian Geise, SVP Voxx Audio Corporation
