There's one flag that Audien isn't afraid to let fly, and it's his love of progressive house.
So goes the artist's latest, "Drifting Away" (with Joe Jury), a scene-setting anthem that captures the otherworldly magic of its title. Featuring a sprinkling of keys and lush synths, the track finds Jury's voice floating like velvet above a celestial soundscape before it elevates into its heart-pumping drop. Altogether, "Drifting Away" is as nostalgic as it is invigorating.
"That's the magic of progressive house: it's timeless," Audien tells EDM.com. "And I think 'Drifting Away' encapsulates that. It's a timeless classic."
