Last weekend we caught up with Au5 as he is touring the country with legendary trance rock band Infected Mushroom. Au5 does not define himself to one genre as he has released songs in various genres. Hailing from New Jersey, Austin (Au5) is a young producer with a old-school mentality. Down to earth and extremely intelligent, we interviewed Au5 to see what his future plans entail. We wanted to know after producing “Snowblind Ft. Tasha Baxter,” if there are any plans for some new collaborations with her and other producers Austin has worked with in the past. Austin stated that he is working on new material with Tasha Baxter and Fractal. He will be featured in a song called, “Bigger Than Me,” from Tasha and he plans on producing more tracks with her. Au5 and Fractal have almost finished a full length album which we are excited about, however these is no release date on the album just yet. Austin is working on setting up a tour with another artist soon, however no dates have been decided. We heard that Austin would like to tour with Xilent, but again nothing is concrete. He plans performing at a few festivals this summer, one in Virgina and a couple to be determined at a later date. All I know is that this young producer has taken the EDM bass music scene by storm and there is no stopping him. Having plans for collaborations with many different artists, a full length album with Fractal, as well as a plan for his own full length album, Au5 is going to be dominating the scene for years to come.
Below is the full interview and a link to all of the photos from the Au5 and Infected Mushroom show at the Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL.
