NUDE153: Audio State


Romanian-born DJ and producer Audio State is proving to be an intrinsic name within the next generation of rising techno stars, with a rich catalogue of high-impact records to his name. Having only been active on the circuit for a few years, the burgeoning talent has already graced some of the most influential labels in the scape, including Terminal M, Elevate Records, Unrilis, Legend Records and Extima Records to name a few. Championing an adaptable blend of melodic-driven, peak-time techno alongside raw, hypnotic cuts, Audio State’s boundless creativity is setting him on a path to dance music royalty. 

Launching his career in the tech-house sphere, Audio State saw huge success under his preceding aliases before maturing his sound palette into a harder and faster strain of underground music. Now standing as one of Romania’s most promising components, Audio State’s deserving reflection from fellow DJs has ensured his elevation to even greater heights in the last two years, with his productions proving commonplace among the touring playlists of Charlotte de Witte, Adam Beyer, Sam Paganini, Enrico Sangiuliano, Joyhauser, Pig & Dan, Thomas Schumacher, Joseph Capriati and Sama Abdulhadi, to name a few. With notable footholds inside Beatport’s Peak-time Top 100 chart and Hype section with every single one of his releases, the producer’s flourishing discography only grows to hold more future hit records. 

Moving from the countryside to Bucharest during the city’s golden era of dance music, Audio State’s versatile perspective on the genre stems from these early experiences and aims to raise the profile of the country’s relatively undiscovered nightlife. In addition to his local performances within Romania’s notable clubs, Audio State has played alongside artists such as Jon Rundell, Stiv Hey and Alex Mine, as well as closing one of the stages at the acclaimed Untold Festival. With a string of shows in countries like Finland and Holland and Germany, Audio State looks ahead to his performances in the second half of 2023.

Today, he joins the NUDE Techno podcast, with an hour of Techno. Listen to it below on SoundCloud & Mixcloud. If you are feeling this series, then please consider supporting it on Mixcloud Select.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
