Hindsight’. ‘Kate’. ‘Wayfarer’. ‘Rebound’. Some of the iconic Anjunabeats tracks that have been penned by Nate Rathbun, Audien, and Artem Stolyarov, aka Arty. Pioneers of the progressive trance sound, ‘Never Letting Go’ sees these trailblazing talents collide for the first time; a dream collaboration becoming reality.
“It finally happened! It took us 3 years, a lot of turned down ideas, and a lot of sleepless nights, but we made it happen! Nate is an incredibly talented person, a great friend, and a great soul. It’s amazing to see how he has evolved as a producer since his remix of my track “Come Home.” Throughout the years we have shared the same passion about the music we make, we like, and we play in our sets. And that’s what we aimed to express in “Never Letting Go” – it’s emotional, hopeful, and uplifting. I really hope our fans will feel the same way because this song is made for them,” Arty says.
Audien adds, “Working on a song with Arty is more than a bucket list item, more than a milestone. To me, it’s something that had to happen. It’s crazy, I grew up idolizing Arty’s work, to work with him is a dream come true. We’re very similar, him and I, and I don’t mean just musically. I see a lot of myself in him even in our personal lives. Honestly, he’s the man, and he’s one of the few people I can call a true friend. Excited about this song.”
