Electronic producer AUST is gearing up to release his latest single, ‘The Hive’ via Enhanced Music’s new Chill imprint, Enhanced Chill. The title track of his upcoming two-track EP pairs jagged electronic elements with thrumming basslines, all of which is soothed over with harmonising vocals.
AUST’s previous single, ‘Sunrise’ received over 80 thousand plays within one month with a feature on tastemaker Youtube Channel ElectroPosé and, in total, the producer has received over 1.4 million plays on Spotify. These numbers are spurred on by the fact that his track ‘Time’ went on to reach #56 on the iTunes US Electronic Top 100.
AUST reveals the little piece of oasis that inspired the song: “’The Hive‘ refers to the new place me and my wife live in,” he says, shedding light on the intimacy that lies behind the track’s title. “It’s a tiny house surrounded by wild nature where I recorded some sounds that are featured on both songs. I’ve also just built a second studio there to focus on new inspirations. The place was full of bees during the summer (which is unfortunately uncommon those days) and the chorus on ‘The Hive‘ took me back to those sounds.”
