Subsidia Records, of course, eventually kicked the EDM community's door down with a stupefying 118-track debut compilation. Constructed as a four-part narrative, the expansive record explored a slew of electronic sub-genres, such as dubstep, future bass, and experimental trap.

After Subsidia shared the early artwork, Excision eventually chimed in with a tweet of his own to offer a bit more insight into the conceptual design of his flagship record label, saying his team's goal was to "create a unique city unlike any we had seen before." "We rendered the entire virtual future world in 3D for the artwork - can’t wait to show you more!" he wrote.
