Taking influence from Drum and Bass, Metal, and Hip Hop, Excision is a Dubstep artist who must be heard to be fully believed. Combining the morphing bass lines of Drum and Bass, the aggressive energy of Metal, and the laid back vibes of hip hop, Excision’s style is incomparable.
At only 22, this young Canadian’s passion for music has already driven him to become one of the biggest Dubstep acts of North America. If you’re lucky enough to catch a live set, expect an assault of bass-heavy tracks, mixed quickly and seamlessly.
Upon the selling out and repressing of his first release, “No Escape” on his own label Rottun Recordings, it became apparent that there was a large demand for the dark side of Dubstep. This was proven to be true when Excision was asked by Electronic Music Superstars Pendulum to remix their latest single “Showdown.”
At Canadian music fest., SHAMBHALA, Excsion shared the bill with the likes of Bassnectar, AC SLATER, Benga, and Sub Swara. The crowds left all talking about Excisions set that decimated the dance floor.
His tracks featuring bass badboy Datsik have been been some of dubsteps most talked about tracks of 2009. An Excision set will be one to remember!
Look out for collaborations with North American Bass Guru Bassnectar, Pendulum, and many others ranging from Drum and Bass heavy-weight SPL, to Dubstep womp master DZ. With an upcoming U.S. tour alongside Pendulum, and a set at the fabled Shambhala Music Festival among many other Canadian and U.S. dates throughout the year, Excision is one to watch.
