The Untz FestivalWith Ashes just over a month away (a February 15th release is on the books), melodic bass producer Illenium today revealed his new mega-hit "Afterlife." With a massive Decadence play featuring Said The Sky and Crywolf kicking off 2016, Nick Miller wasted no time in getting back to studio mode, teasing the forthcoming full-length with an indie-electro gem that features Portland's Lexi Norton and Tal Richards, who produce and perform as Echos.

An unconvential drop that literally drops out is the centerpiece of this emotive selection. Co-written by Miller, Norton, and Richards, the carefully crafted verses culminate in a powerful chorus that turns the not so sunny topic of death into a hopeful, uplifting tune. Illenium has been on a hot streak, churning out cuts across the genre spectrum, all the while gaining hundreds of thousands of plays along the way. We're expecting to hear more singles as the album's release date approaches.

And we never miss an opportunity to remind fans that you can see Illenium, along with Said The Sky and Crywolf at The Untz Festival in Mariposa, CA from June 2-4. It's our first festival, and we're excited to lock down some of the best in melodic bass for our inaugural event. Join us and soak up these young talents, because they're blowing up fast.
