Illenium Drops 13-Track Sophomore Album ‘AWAKE’

After months of anticipation, Illenium’s sophomore album, AWAKE, is finally here! The young producer kept constant attention on this impending project throughout most of this year, dropping singles “Fractures,” “Feel Good,” “Sound of Walking Away,” “Crawl Outta Love” and “Leaving” on a fairly consistent basis. Minus “Leaving,” which was released just last week, each of these singles has racked up millions of plays across streaming services. The final project presents us with another eight tracks that make for a stirring offering from start to finish.

AWAKE is fairly vocal-heavy, with the artist teaming up with performers like Daya, MAX, Nevve and many more to create pieces that wholeheartedly embody the melodic dubstep genre. Although each of these stands out in their own way, Illenium’s true skill shines in “No Time Like Now,” “Where’d U Go” and “Taking Me Higher,” tracks that shy away from the use of vocals and allow his clean production to take center stage. These songs also give the producer the opportunity to dip into other styles that mix elements of progressive, future, indie and more. 

In addition to these, the final track of the album, “Let You Go” feat. Ember Island, is an absolute standout. The group’s heavenly harmonies marry well with Illenium’s emotional style. The producer utilizes a gentle, almost trance-like style to guide you out of the project, a move that will no doubt send chills down your spine.

Hundred Waters Deliver Chill New Indie Album ‘Communicating’ Via OWSLA

Hundred Waters Communicating

Los Angeles-based trio Hundred Waters have just released their new album via Skrillex's OWSLA label, following the Currency EP they dropped just this May. Communicating, the group's third LP, includes previously released singles "Particles," "Fingers," and "Wave to Anchor," alongside eight brand-new tracks.

Hundred Waters' unique blend of electronic elements and organic, acoustic instruments sets them apart from their peers. This new album only builds upon that sound they have produced, which comes with a wave of melancholy over every beat and note. One minute lead singer Nicole Miglis' beautiful vocals will be hushed, restrained, and haunting, and the next she will open up with huge notes that show off her incredible vocal range. The impeccable production on this is expertly crafted, which really requires headphones to get the full effect of its intricacies. Enjoy!
