Denver-based artist Nick Miller, known professionally as Illenium, has signed to Astralwerks and makes his debut on the renowned dance label with the highly personal single Take You Down. After hearing from many fans about how his music has gotten them through dark periods, he felt compelled to share how music saved his life, too, following a heroin overdose six years ago.

In a letter to fans, posted HERE, Illenium explains, “Take You Down is about my struggles with addiction and what it can do to families and loved ones. It’s more specifically about my mom, and how no matter what, she never gave up on me. To anyone struggling like I did, not just with addiction but anything in life, I hope you guys can find peace in your struggles and know that anything can be overcome. I’ve been clean since that overdose and I owe that to finding my passion and being surrounded by the most loving people I could ever ask for.

In addition to a full slate of festival performances, including Outside Lands, Bumbershoot, Electric Zoo, Lost Lands, Austin City Limits and EDC Orlando, he will play a sold-out headline show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on August 29. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at http://illenium.com/tour/.

Reviewing Illenium’s Coachella 2018 performance, Your EDM.com noted, “In the hour long set, Illenium played his heart out to tens of thousands of fans, some of whom were probably only at the festival to see him. Bringing out some deeper cuts as well as all of his newest music from Awake and Ashes, Illenium proceeded to take fans on an absolutely wild ride.

Illenium creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the 10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017 by Billboard, it included such singles as Feel Good (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and Crawl Outta Love. Praising the album as a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics, Dancing Astronaut said, While it might seem premature to call an album a masterpiece, no other title would fit Awake so well. Billboard observed, “The phoenix is Illenium ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.

Illenium’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s Say It earned him an Electronic Music Award for Best Remix in 2017. Illenium’s recent collaborations include Don’t Give Up On Me with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and Gold (Stupid Love) with Excision ft. Shallows.

20th Anniversary of Fatboy Slim’s Album

Today, Astralwerks released the 20th anniversary reissue of Fatboy Slimߣs Youߣve Come a Long Way, Baby. This seminal album effectively ushered in the electronic era in America. Originally released on October 20 by Astralwerks, Youߣve Come a Long Way, Baby was the first album by a DJ to sell one million units and achieve Platinum certification in the U.S. The reissue is available for purchase via Amazon and Vinyl Me Please. A limited-edition blue vinyl with coffee splatter color variant is also available for purchase exclusively at Vinyl Me Please and is strictly limited to 2,000 copies worldwide.

2018 marks twenty years since the release of the album that spawned era-defining singles Rockafeller Skank, Gangster Trippin, Praise You and Right Here Right Now. Youߣve Come a Long Way Baby reached Number One in the UK album album charts, breaking the US Billboard Top 40, creating a global superstar and putting a new wave of UK dance music on the global map.

First released in 1998, Youߣve Come a Long Way Baby become one of the defining records of the 90s, irrespective of genre. Swinging from hip-hop, to reggae and jangle pop, with Youߣve Come a Long Way Baby, Norman Cook broke stylistic ground and delivered a wildly original album, filled with imagination, huge hooks and even bigger beats.

Bigger than being just a dance album, Youߣve Come a Long Way Baby was a genuine phenomenon, enjoying huge critical and commercial success; it contains 4 UK Top 10 singles, earning Cook a BRIT Award for best producer and two further nominations (Male Solo Artist and British Single) along the way. Embraced by the rock and pop press equally, the album was included in a Q magazine readers’ poll of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever,Éd; and provided a global breakthrough for both British dance music and the Big Beat sound. Singles Rockafeller Skank, Gangster Trippin and anthemic UK Number One single Praise You (which scored 3 MTV VMA awards with its iconic Spike Jonze directed video) pushed dance music into the stratosphere, resonating with music fans and breaking electronic music to middle America. Norman Cook had caught lightning in a bottle, and in one genre-defining moment, the seeds of the noughties EDM US boom were sown, paving the way for the next generation of global superstars.

Fast forward twenty years and Fatboy Slim remains one of the most groundbreaking and prolific of the original Superstar DJs. Over the past eighteen months alone – as well as launching his own Beat 1 show and playing back to back with Eats Everything – he has played stages as diverse as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, his first Ibiza residency at Cream Amnesia, B2B with Eats Everything and in December of this year, headlined The O2 – essentially turning the 20,000 capacity venue into the biggest nightclub London has ever seen.
