Excision & Illenium Team Up On Hard-Hitting, Melancholic New Single “Gold (Stupid Love)”


Today’s a good day to be a basshead! Back in March, Illenium shared that he and Excision had been in the studio together – and after a few teasers and some confusion as to if the collab would ever see the light of day, “Gold (Stupid Love)” is finally here.

We weren’t sure what to expect out of a collab from the two heavyweight producers, but this latest offering is even better than we could’ve anticipated. Starting off slow with some warbling guitar and soft vocals courtesy of LA-based duo Shallows, some powerful percussion and rising synths quickly transform the track from an emotional ballad into a hard-hitting dubstep monster. Although both Excision and Illenium have traveled down slightly different paths on the bass-music spectrum, their unique sounds perfectly compliment each other on this new one. Check out “Gold (Stupid Love)” below and enjoy!
