It should only take about 3 seconds into “Chambray”, the lead off song from Auriént‘s Aura Bath before you’re fully committed. The track’s glitchy, electro-disco is a downpayment on a party in your near future, unfolding over the course of the album’s ten tracks of house, synth-pop, and airy, spacious confections.
The album is the debut from the Los Angeles producer. We asked him to talk about a few of his favorites.
“Hip Girl” is special to me because it’s one of the first tunes I ever made for the project,’ Auriént says. “The vocals were sent through a text message almost 4 years ago. The tempo change is useful for dj sets too.”
His favorite at the moment is “Nu Phrench.” “Particularly for the moody part around 3 minutes in.” He’s currently holding a remix contest for the track here.
“‘Jackson Market’ is one of my favorites to play out because of the transition between french house and that jackin’ Chicago sound we all enjoy,’ he says of the track named for a Culver City market and deli he frequents.
Aura Bath is out today on Swedish label van Drumpt.
