Illenium blends melodic bass with stirring vocals, which just might move you to tears. With every track, whether it be an original or a remix, Illenium leaves his mark. He creates a sound that is undeniably his own.
Nick Miller (Illenium) began his endeavor in 2012. Before, he was just like you or me. He loved going to EDM shows, but after a life-changing Bassnectar set at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Miller was inspired to start making his own music. And so, Illenium was born.
He gained his momentum through a relentless tour schedule. He preformed at several music festivals in 2015, including SXSW, Electric Forest, Decadence, and more. He’s constantly getting his name out there.
In addition to his ceaseless touring, Illenium is very successful with his remixing abilities. Last summer, Kaskade held a contest for the best remix of his track, “Disarm You” featuring Ilsey. Illenium won. “Disarm You (Illenium Remix)” has over 5.8 million plays on SoundCloud.
He has remixed songs from several other popular artists, like Odesza, Galantis, Niykee Heaton, and Chill Harris (formerly Kill Paris)—each remix has over a million plays on SoundCloud.
While he can create a beautiful remix, he excels at producing original tracks.
Last month, he released his debut album, Ashes. The album flew straight to #1 on the iTunes Electronic Album chart. Some of the tracks, like “Fortress”, went viral on Spotify. Illenium is blowing up.
See what all the hype is about—take a peak at his album, Ashes:
