Illenium Goes Heavy in Bass Banger “Blood” Featuring Foy Vance

Sustaining impregnable momentum, American electronic dance musician and Denver-based producer Nicholas D. Miller unveiled another inspired single under his melodic bass stamp Illenium. “Blood” featuring Foy Vance lands as the artist’s fourth and final release before the imminent arrival of his third full-length studio album Ascend, which drops August 16 via Astralwerks.

Illenium previously gave fans a small taste of the highly anticipated LP; first with “Crashing” featuring electronic duo Bahari, then with “Good Things Fall Apart” featuring Long Island native Jon Bellion, as well as his high-profile collaboration with The Chainsmokers, entitled “Takeaway.”

Although the DJ has become well-known for putting his diehard fanbase in their feels, his latest track is something altogether different. Playing on his love of heavy bass while simultaneously staying true to his signature melodic sound, “Blood” encapsulates Illenium’s inimitable alchemy as a producer. In addition to its distillation of dubstep dissonance that’s sure to turn the crowd into a mosh pit, the brand new air also features soulful vocal transmissions that send a convincing reminder to us all: “We’re all together. We cope by having a community. We’re blood.”
