ILLENIUM is the hero Gotham needs right now.

The electronic music superstar has teamed up with DC Comics and leading apparel brand Electric Family for a rare Batman merch collab. The DC-branded, limited edition collection is available now.

One look at the threads is all it takes to realize the undeniable synergy between the DJ's and superhero's respective imagery. The dark skies of Gotham are an ideal canvas for ILLENIUM's incandescent "phoenix" emblem and likeness, which glides around the iconic Bat-Signal.

Electric Family has long operated in the vanguard of electronic dance music and fashion. Over the years, the company's list of artist collaborations has grown to look more like an EDC lineup than a ledger. They've joined forces with the likes of Carl Cox, Skrillex, Marshmello, Tiësto and Kygo, among many others, to develop unique merchandise and empower the dance music community at large.

Electric Family and DC's new Batman-themed collection features various articles of clothing, including a t-shirt, hoodie, crewneck and a stunning, polychromatic baseball jersey—a fan-favorite among Illenials. DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscribers will receive early access at 8AM PT (11AM ET) before it opens to the general public two hours later.

DC is also releasing a limited edition "ILLENIUM x Batman" comic book cover on Friday, April 22nd. The first 100 of the 3,000 limited comics will be autographed by the Grammy-nominated Fallen Embers producer.

EDM.com caught up with Electric Family cofounder Steve Brudzewski to discuss the ambitious new collab as well as what the company has in store this year.

EDM.com: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the music industry in many ways, like democratizing live streaming for many electronic music artists. In what ways did it affect Electric Family and how did the company grow from it?

Steve Brudzewski: I believe Covid affected a lot of musicians because it took away the ability to perform live and earn a living from live events. Thankfully, we are an online focused brand with a lot of relationships in the music industry.

We were able to transform ElectricFamily.com into an artist merchandise superstore to not only give artists an additional channel to earn a living, but to give fans a chance to shop and support their favorite artists every single day.

EDM.com: Can you tell us more about the partnership with DC? How did it come about?

Steve Brudzewski: The DC Comics partnership started over three years ago with a vision. We felt that the iconic brands represented by DC and some of the artists we work with could have a great synergy. We had a meeting with them, and they embraced our vision and we have been executing it together since. We look forward to working with DC Comics and bringing some more high-quality collaborations to life in the future.

EDM.com: Clothing is perhaps the quintessential way many dance music fans express themselves. In your opinion, what does any particular fit say about the person who wears it?

Steve Brudzewski: I think over the past several years, people have really started to express themselves and who they listen to with their clothing. Seeing more and more fans wearing their favorite artists merchandise at shows and festivals is so cool. I hope more people continue to support their favorite artists and brands this way.

EDM.com: What else can our readers expect to see from Electric Family this year?

Steve Brudzewski: We have a lot of high-quality collaborations in the works, and some special activations later this year.
