Excision and Illenium Drop Long-Awaited Collab at Lost Lands - EDM.com - The Latest Electronic Dance Music News, Reviews & Artists

It's been a couple months since Excision and Illenium turned a rainy day into an opportunity to join forces on a collaboration. At the end of the former artist's bass music festival Lost Lands, the two delivered their first-ever back-to-back set. It provided them the perfect opportunity to test out the feels-heavy single. 

The as-yet-unnamed ID is markedly more melodic than typical Excision (real name Jeff Abel) fare. It instead exhibits the singalong quality more common to Illenium (real name Nicholas D. Miller) releases. Soaring over the top of the electrifying synths are vocals rumored to have been contributed by Detroit rock band I Prevail.

Abel has racked up a veritable laundry list of collaborators so far in 2019. In addition to entire joint EPs with Dion Timmer and Wooli, he's revealed that he and Bassnectar have a collaboration in the works.

It hasn't exactly been a slow year for Miller, either. Shortly after releasing his third studio-length album, ASCEND, he kicked off a tour of its namesake that included his debut headline event at Madison Square Garden in NYC.

At the time of writing, neither Abel nor Miller have disclosed a title or release date for their collaboration.
