An Evening Out

These tracks aren’t really the types that you’d tear up a dance floor to, but I think they’d be great in a relaxed setting. I’d really like to listen to these on a beachside bar balcony with a view of the water, crisp cocktail, and the setting sun. A slight salty breeze ruffles my hair as dusk turns to twilight and the warmth of the cocktails and outdoor fireplaces set in…

This first track is a slooooow burn, but I really like it. Be patient with it and enjoy this dude’s wonderful voice.

This next track makes everything in the world feel right. Perfect for enjoying a setting sun as you contemplate things far bigger than yourself and your place in them. Make sure to download it. Its free.

Ok snap out of that existential daze. The sun has set by the time that this track comes on. Its a little more upbeat and would work well as a transition from atmospheric progressive to more upbeat late night tracks. It’d be perfect as a send off from a beachside bar to a club.

Say goodbye to that lovely bar because now you are off to a club to dance. Lets close out the evening with a pop song remix. Here is Audien’s remix of “Pompeii” by Bastille.

 

 

Audien’s set at Beyond Wonderland 2014

Want some good study music? Run music? A soundtrack to your next party? Look no further. Audien, one of my favorite producers, put on an incredible show at Beyond Wonderland and he kindly uploaded it to his Soundcloud. The intro to this mix gives me chills each time I listen to it. If my recent deep house posts have put you into a dreamlike trance then here is your remedy. This is an hour of high intensity and high quality mixing. Enjoy!

Audien Introduction

Next up from the Anjunabeats label is Audien. Audien is another consistent producer in the same vein as Ilan Bluestone and Andrew Bayer. While sharing much of the same fundamental musical elements such as pronounced bass lines and a driving beat, Audien diverges from the previous two aritsts by managing to imbue his tracks with a sense of lightness. Compared to the previous artists, Audien’s trasks are crisp and refreshing. Basically, Ilan Bluestone’s music reminds me of a packed club at 3:00 am, while Audien’s music reminds me of a mid-afternoon pool DJ show or a day on a boat. Perfect for summer! Hope you enjoy these tracks.
