Biography

Austin Collins, going by the stage name Au5 (ā-yo̵̅o̅-fīv), is an American electronic dance music producer from New Jersey, USA.
In 2012 he teamed up with I.Y.F.F.E. and won the Seven Lions Official Remix contest on Beatport, with his remix of "Days to Come", which was released on Skrillex's OWSLA label. Au5 also collaborated with BT on the single "Partysaurus Overflow" for Walt Disney Records/Pixar, and was also featured with Matt Hales on BT's single "Surrounded", which made it to #2 on Beatport's dubstep chart. Alongside Bada and Fractal, Au5 contributed to the track "City Life" from BT's album A Song Across Wires, released on August 16, 2013 by Armada Music. On August 29, 2014, Au5 released his track "Snowblind" on Monstercat, featured on the compilation 019 - Endeavour and currently has over 5 million views on YouTube. Au5 has repeatedly made his way into Beatport's Top 10, spanning various genres by combining elements of electro house, progressive house, trance, and dubstep. He has collaborated with Fractal and I.Y.F.F.E multiple times.

History

Since the age of 4, Austin has been involved with music, and has had constant exposure to multiple genres, both old and contemporary. He received weekly classical piano training until the age of 12. He started using Easy Beat (a simple multi-track MIDI sequencer) when he was 8 years old, and when he was 11, he learned the program GarageBand. At the age of 12, he began taking production more seriously; having been in numerous bands, and learning how to mix, Austin decided to start a solo project as Au5.

Austin's debut album, Minimality, was self-released on 28 September 2010 and included Trance elements. He later self-released an 8-track album, Anchus Definy, on June 30, 2011. His EP Iconoclast was later released through Atom recordings on May 14, 2012.

"Sweet" (A collaboration with Auratic and I.Y.F.F.E), a complextro song, was Austin's first release on Monstercat in February 11, 2013. He later released "Halcyon", a drumstep track along with Fractal. Au5's first solo release on Monstercat was his Blossom EP, featuring the melodic bass track "Blossom" and the Drum and Bass track "Moonland." A 4-track EP was later released on Monstercat with Fractal on December 2, 2013, titled Secret Weapon EP, with 3 of the tracks uploaded to the Monstercat YouTube channel. In these releases, Au5 used Trance, Bass and House influences to create fast-paced, heavy yet melodic tracks.

"Follow You", a Progressive House song featuring vocals from Danyka Nadeau, was released through Monstercat in March, 2014, and a remix EP was released on July the same Year, featuring remixes from Virtual Riot, Rootkit and a VIP mix. Austin later released "Snowblind", featuring vocals from Tasha Baxter, a dubstep song that seamlessly fuses melodic, vocal parts and heavy sections with a unique drop, again through Monstercat, and has since become Au5's most popular song, reaching #1 on Beatport and amassing over 3.5 million views on YouTube. A free self-released remix EP was later released.

2015 saw Austin release Tracks of increasing variety. "Dream Of Love", a Glitch-Hop collaboration with Heavy J featuring vocals from Kenny Raye, was released on Simplify Recordings in May. Au5 later released 3 singles under Monstercat: "Inside", an electro song with vocals from Danyka Nadeau; "Atlantis", a dubstep song and "Guardians" a Progressive House song featuring Fiora. Au5's latest Monstercat release was a 2-track EP with Fractal titled Ison/Pavonine and includes "Ison" and "Pavonine", which are dubstep and Glitch Hop respectively.

It was announced on February 10 that Austin would be joining Infected Mushroom on their 2015 US Tour.
