Following the release of "Bones" earlier this week, Excision (real name Jeff Abel) and Dion Timmer have dropped their highly anticipated collaborative EP, Breaking Through.
Absolute madness front to back, the four-track EP is exactly what fans of both artists have been craving. Kicking things off with the high-octane namesake track "Breaking Through," things stay heavy as the EP moves onto "Proceed With Caution" featuring Shiverz. Abel and Timmer switch things up a bit on "Time Stood Still," incorporating a haunting vocal sample alongside a melodic-yet-heavy drop. The pair round things off with "Bones," using a digitized vocal sample to bait listeners into another neck-breaking drop.
Abel is an artist that needs no introduction. The dubstep pioneer has revolutionized the dance music scene in a number of ways, most notably hosting one of the biggest bass music festivals in the world, Lost Lands. His recent releases include his fourth album, Apex, as well as two massively successful singles from the album, "Gold (Stupid Love)" with Illenium and "Rumble" with Space Laces.
Since partnering with Abel early on in his career, Timmer has made himself known in the dance music scene. The young talent has recently released a number of popular singles, such as "Internet Boy" featuring Micah Martin and "Leave" featuring Luma as well as his Very Extra EP. Timmer has also found himself partnering with huge names in the dance music industry, like Zeds Dead on their collab "Rescue" and Dubloadz on their joint effort "Neon Phantom."
