Versatility remains the key to longevity. Any artist must be able to deliver regardless of the setting, whether it's in the studio or on stage. For Morgan Page, it doesn't matter where he is. His number one concern is sharing quality music. As an artist, DJ, songwriter, and even radio show presenter, he continually offers a unique and undeniable perspective, evolving with the times. No matter what he's working on, he delivers for the audience.
Page has become a seismic presence at festivals such as Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Big Day Out, and many more worldwide events. In 2012, he was nominated by the IDMA's in the "Best American DJ" category alongside Skrillex, Kaskade, and Deadmau5. Two Grammy Award nominations are credited to his name, and his 2011 full-length album, In The Air, debuted at #1 on Beatport's "Top 100 Albums" Chart and #6 on Billboard's Heatseeker's Chart, while the single reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Chart and resided in the Top 10 for a staggering 25 weeks. With all this along with sales figures that put him over 600,000 digital track sales and YouTube views that surpass 19 million, it's no wonder the Wynn Las Vegas tapped him for a prestigious residency in 2012 and Sirius XM gave him his very own radio show—aptly titled "In The Air" (on its 162nd episode and counting.) Even with all of this, he shows absolutely no signs of stopping. As a veritable tastemaker, this trailblazer is now taking EDM to new places altogether.
Welcome to the age of Morgan Page…
At a time where the upcoming talents in the scene of Electronic Dance Music seem to get younger by the second, another promisingh his incredible sense beautiful melodies and a production quality that deserves a lot of recognition, Nate "Audien" Rathbun is starting to show off his skills in a trance and progressive scene that many had mistaken for being dead and gone.
At age 18 and hailing from the Northeastern shores of USA, Nate has silently been honing his skills ever since his first encounter with EDM at age 15. Having been brought up in a family with a mother that was very passionate about music in general, and a father that expressed his joy through guitar playing and singing, undoubtedly helped to shape Nate's passion for music. Starting off with up-tempo techno gradually transitioning to trance and progressive. It did not take long fo prospect of tomorrow has appeared. Witr people to see that Nate had a flair for the melodies and the production skills required to create quality productions.
Recently Nate has seen his originals and remixes getting picked up by heavyweight UK trance labels Armada, Enhanced Recordings, Flashover, Black Hole, and Alter Ego among others. Recently Nate signed a track to Ferry Corsten's dutch imprint Flashover Recordings which ended up on Ferry's hot compilation theory entitled "Once Upon A Night" among many other compilations lisenced by Armada, Enhanced, and others.
Nate has never had a problem with airplay. His productions have frequently been featured on radio shows such as A State Of Trance with Armin Van Buuren, Trance Around The World with Above and Beyond, Corsten's Countdown with Ferry Corsten, Tiesto's Club Life, including many other shows hosted by credible and established Producers and DJs.
On the remix front Nate has proven himself capable at working at an amazing pace; finishing remixes for before mentioned, Enhanced Recordings, AVA (Armada), the also UK based Alter Ego, and with numerous other deals in the works it is safe to say that it will not take long before the world will be making the first encounter with young, yet incredibly gifted American.
Another essential component of Anjunabeats' creative heart, Israel's rising star Maor Levi is co-headlining the tour - having debuted on the label with 2006's "Lital" at just 17 years old. In the years since, the prodigious producer has consistently moved his sound forward with hits like the genre-blurring "On Our Own" withBluestone, the brilliant Boom Jinx & Ashley Tomberlin collaboration "When You Loved Me" and his recent smash "Holding On" - with Armin Van Buuren, Arty, BT and Morgan Page amongst his many fans.
"Having first joined the label as a 17 year old prodigy, Israel's Maor Levi has matured into one of our most reliable, accomplished and talented production forces. We can't remember the last time we played a set without at least one of his productions in it." - Above & Beyond
