Au5 has defied genre boundaries yet again with his new captivating track, “Answers”.
The producer takes us on a roller coaster ride of a journey with a mesmerizing tune. Starting off with a beautiful melody, far-out vocals (done by Au5 himself) echo creating a sense of nostalgia and entrancement. Eventually kicking up the intensity to full gear, he delivers both euphoric and hard-hitting synths, revealing a dubstep-influenced turn later in the track.
Throughout his career, Au5 has developed his melodic soundscape to blend trance and dubstep to create a unique forward-thinking sound. The young producer’s signature futuristic sound has landed him a recent collaboration with melodic bass luminary Seven Lions, a release on NCS, and his production prowess is unmatched, as his Ableton Sound Design Course is the top course at In The Daw since it’s release.
Au5’s debut on Enhanced Music marks the first release under the label’s new exciting rebrand, which boasts a new artwork aesthetic, as well as a slight shift in musical direction. The label enlisted esteemed designer David Malone to create the new artwork. Malone’s portfolio includes work with Jamiroquai, Rihanna, Marcy Gray, John Digweed, and his label Bedrock Records, Nicole Moudaber, and many more.
On the rebrand - Enhanced Co-Founder Will Holland says “Our Enhanced Recordings imprint has had several revamps over the last 12 years, and I think this might be my favorite one yet. We teamed up with the legendary David Malone, who has helped to deliver a new direction that feels both modern and timeless, and in keeping with our principles.”
