GRAMMY®-nominated recording artist Audien and acclaimed DJ/producer 3LAU share new remixes from Two Friends and YOOKiE of their haunting single, “Hot Water.” Two Friends remix HERE, and the Yookie remix HERE.
The track, which features vocalist Victoria Zaro, is available for purchase and streaming HERE. “Hot Water” was co-written by Audien and 3LAU alongside songwriters Emily Warren and Scott Harris (The Chainsmokers, Alessia Cara), producer/writer Ido Zmishlany (Shawn Mendes) and singer/songwriter Jasmine Thompson.
Audien (a.k.a. Nathaniel “Nate” Rathbun) said, “There’s something about collaborating with a friend that encourages risk-taking, dares you to dig deeper sonically, and reminds you of why you make music for a living. 3LAU and I had an absolute blast making ‘Hot Water,’ and the amazing response from crowds that have already heard us play it out has reassured us that we’ve got something special.”
3LAU(a.k.a. Justin David Blau) recalled, “Audien & I wanted to make a song that stayed true to our euphoric roots, but that explored a mixture of genres. We wanted to create something that people wouldn’t expect; the result was this dark cathartic landscape of sound that I couldn’t be more proud of!”
Here’s a word from Two Friends on the track, “Audien and 3LAU have both been two dudes who have inspired us for several years- obviously starting with their amazing music but also with their overall brands, and we’ve now had the pleasure of becoming friends with both of them. We were stoked when we were asked to put our spin on Hot Water, which we were fans of since the day it came out. We fused together some future-bass/house/pop vibes, and there’s even some hidden trumpet in there. Can’t wait for all the upcoming stuff we have as well- gonna be a fun couple of months!”
