Illenium is Back With his Signature Soothing Sound on New Album 'Awake'
If you haven't been listening to Illenium this year you've either never listened to electronic music or you've been living under a rock. For the well initiated, the wait is over for Illenium’s sophomore album Awake and it delivers just what you would expect and more.
Very early on a lot of people discredited Illenium for sounding too similar to Seven Lions, but in the last two years especially, Illenium aka Nick Miller has stepped out of that shadow and carved himself his very own spot at the top of the bass music scene. The man himself does indeed cite Seven Lions, ODESZA, and Porter Robinson as influences; the influence of all three being more apparent than ever in this record. Influences aside it feels like we're at the point where Illenium has created his own following such that it doesn't matter what other producers he sounds like anymore.
He sounds like Illenium. And it's beautiful.
