Denver-based artist Nick
Miller—known professionally as ILLENIUM—shares his first single of 2019, ‘Crashing’ featuring Bahari, today via Virgin EMI. ‘Crashing’ is available for
streaming and download HERE.
Of the collaboration,
ILLENIUM says, “I really love how this song turned out. I heard the demo a long time ago and it
always really stuck with me. We started
working together a few months later and they played the idea for me again. I
was really stoked I was able to be a part of the record with such amazing
people. Working on the song felt natural
and I couldn’t have asked for a better duo to work with on it!”
“This song is so close to our
hearts. It’s been one of our favorite songs we’ve ever made, and we have been
waiting for the perfect time to put it out. ILLENIUM really captured the
emotion of what we were trying to portray with the lyrics. We couldn’t have
dreamed of a better collaboration for this song,” says Bahari.
Just last week, he unveiled the Hex Cougar Remix of his 2018 single, ‘God
Damnit’ with Call Me Karizma.
The original clocked upwards of 12 million total streams as Dancing Astronaut praised how he “plasters
his trademark drums and haunting melodies for a crisp, intimate production that
is primed to send chills throughout the human spine.” An explosive union of styles, rising L.A. producer Hex Cougar heightened the dark melodies
and hyper-charged bass of the tune, amplifying its energy all around. Check out
the remixHERE. It came hot on
the heels of ILLENIUM’s own remix of ‘Without Me’ by superstar Halsey.
Another fan favorite, it ascended to the Top 10 of the iTunes Overall Top Songs
Chart and amassed 14 million total streams thus far. Listen to ILLENIUM’s
‘Without Me’ remix HERE.
Finalizing a major tour announcement very soon, ILLENIUM will
headline New York City’s legendary Madison
Square Garden for the first time in 2019. This milestone follows up his
2.0 Tour, which sold out every single date including three nights at
San Francisco’s Bill Graham Auditorium and NYC’s Terminal 5 respectively, and
two nights at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.
ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional
experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary
in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his
credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed
the one billion stream mark
across his discography.
His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim
in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017
and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one
of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as ‘Feel Good’ (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and ‘Crawl
Outta Love.’ Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass,
piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing
Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a
‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake
so well.” Billboard observed, “The
phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s
mascot, and Awake is the
emergent moment of that story.”
ILLENIUM’sAwake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country,
and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic
Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s ‘Say It’ earned him an Electronic Music Award for ‘Best Remix’
in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include
‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ with Kill The
Noise ft. Mako and ‘Gold (Stupid
Love)’ with Excision ft. Shallows.
