Au5 forges an emotional bridge between different feelings in his latest spellbinding album.
One can only compare Au5‘s rapid ascend in the electronic scene to a meteorite with no signs of slowing down. The sound design maestro continues to be a force to be reckoned within the bass music scene as he blasts out his seizure-inducing signature sounds and impresses fans around the world with his impeccable releases.
A classically trained musician, Au5 embodies the essence of a well-rounded producer as he demonstrates his dedication to making music that inspires the betterment of the world. Earlier this summer, he announced that his sixth studio album Bridges Between will make its grand debut on Ophelia Records as the fans eagerly anticipate the momentous arrival of his latest record.
Bridges Between speaks to Au5’s commitment to depicting the different stages of emotions throughout his career while simultaneously charting a newfound mission for the future. His talent as a creative visual artist shines brightly through the undeniable synergy between the album’s self-made cover art and the music therein. Portraying a tranquil path of water, the quasi-spiritual imagery cues listeners to dive into a profound journey of transformation. In essence, it reflects a vision of the outer environment from a distance that symbolically represents inner peace and solace.
In the lead-up to the release, the influential artist offered his fans a tantalizing glimpse into the soundscapes comprising the new record as he unveiled four singles, each depicting a different chapter of a tale. These were “Waiting,” “Paradise,” “Before You Leave,” and “Bridge,” all of which featured an impressive roster of collaborators whose voices and creative contributions brought a breath of fresh air to the project.
With the new album now available in its entirety, fans can immerse themselves in a treasure trove of eclectic sounds across ten tracks. Between progressive house, trap, future bass, midtempo, heavy dubstep, and more, Au5 masterfully combines these tunes into a dazzling and unique package. The title track “Entrance” aptly opens the album with a mix of aquatic echoes and futuristic vibes. Cascading over a gentle arrangement of trance-inspired melodies, excitement amplifies onto a rolling bassline that reaches for a peak climax.
“Future Without You” is another standout. The euphoric soundscape layers soaring energy atop singer-songwriter EMME‘s stirring vocals. Along with other stunners like “What You’ve Done” and “Summer Days,” the album is a crystal-clear testament to Au5’s power as a world-class storytelling and fearless innovator.
When you think you have heard it all, “Resurrection” surges forward with an electrifying pace. It builds from dramatic chords to skyscraping synth stabs before the last solo track, “Escape,” finally sees the influential force lay down a swirling touch of celestial aura with shimmering bass lines and gradual synth progression.
Au5 is set to kick off an exhilarating fall headline album tour as he joins forces with Ophelia Records to take his collaborators and fellow label mates on stage with him. The tour will see him perform tracks from his latest album and make stops at major venues in Minneapolis, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Orlando, and other cities.
