If Denali Records are not on your radar yet, that needs to change now. Curated by the talented artists who also run Bonsai Collective, the platform was created out of a desire to showcase harder tunes that fall under the bass umbrella while still showcasing some of the most promising underrated artists. Case in point, today’s latest release coming from French producer Audeon, who boasts less than one thousand followers on SoundCloud but is worthy of ten times that number.
A drum and bass aficionado who uses various styles to influence his music, Audeon has been on a tear as of late and looks to continue his momentum with ‘Cold Mind,’ out now via Denali Records. Coming off a runner-up placement in MUST DIE!’s ‘CHAOS‘ remix contest and a feature on OUTSIDERS PARIS‘ latest compilation, Audeon takes a more relaxed approach to drum and bass with his latest, but it doesn’t lack energy or groove. Hovering between techy and liquid drum and bass, ‘Cold Mind’ is hypnotizing in melody and inspiring in aura.
“‘Cold Mind’ is kind of an experimental song with white noise basses – and was actually made for a Discord musical challenge at first. Inspired by releases on DIVIDID, it also features huge pads & melodies yet is still as minimalistic as possible, as this is where I wanna go with my music,” says Audeon about his latest.
As someone who has been binging drum and bass for the better part of 2021, ‘Cold Mind’ is sure to skyrocket to the top of most of my playlists, and it should enter yours, too. Don’t miss it below.
