Austin Millz, the Harlem-born DJ extraordinaire, is back with a new single featuring one of the biggest names currently in R&B: Sabrina Claudio.

It’s our first glimpse into the world of Austin Millz’ upcoming EP, Breathwork, reminiscent of euphoric moments with beats and sounds to match.
“Inhale / Exhale is a track that embodies emotion. Sabrina was the perfect co-star for this and the only person that I thought could bring this track to life and she did. It’s a feeling of dance floor euphoria while still bringing feelings through. It’s full of life, emotion, color and, energy while still maintaining that Harlem bounce that I capture in my music. I’m so excited for this to be my lead single to my upcoming EP, Breathwork.”

My favorite memory of making Inhale / Exhale was just the whole session in its entirety. There were a lot of laughs and dancing, just good vibes overall.
You create music that blends multiple genres. Do you have a favorite?

I would like to delve into jazz and incorporate that more in music in the future.

My favorite part of performing live is bringing that energy to life! And seeing people from all walks of life coming together for the greater good of music. I love seeing different cultures coming together and having a good time.
