[PREMIERE] Illenium's Single "Afterlife" Feat. Echos Gets A Heavy Remix From Dabin

Illenium Dabin

Illenium's emotional and melodic single, "Afterlife" feat. Echos, has received the remix treatment from Toronto-based producer Dabin. The original track is part of Illenium's 12-track debut album Ashes and has sort of become an all-encompassing representation of his sound with its emotional core and explosive, melodic dubstep sound. 

Dabin beautifully rearranges the production to take on two heavily contrasting styles. The first half of the song embraces a chillstep style with feathery drum kicks to create more of a beat atop the orchestral melody. The drop maintains its essential elements, but gets layered with an angelic counter melody made up of Echos' lovely vocals. 

Things take an interesting and compelling turn in the second half of the record as the sound design shifts towards a darker set of elements before fully unleashing a powerful, dubstep drop. Dabin then bridges the entire song together with a third drop that seamlessly weaves Echos' vocals in and out of lush future bass synths. Taking on an Illenium song is no easy task but Dabin certainly steps up to the plate here with his bold rework of "Afterlife". Stream it below and enjoy!

Minnesota just dropped off a free chill change of pace, the 2 song Eternal Frequencies - Equinox EP . The first song "Bloom" is a slow paced incredibly melodic dubstep anthem featuring some live instruments in a unique fashion. The second track "Stardst Redux" is space theme adventure fueled by a catchy acoustic guitar plucked melody. This new sound is so much more dynamic and layered then his previous work, and a step in an exciting direction. Glad he decided to give these out for free as well. Find somewhere to play these loud. Enjoy!
