Future melodic-bass producer Illenium, aka Nick Miller, will be taking the spotlight at this year’s Shaky Beats Music Festival, and fans are highly anticipating this event.
The most special part about this performance is that it will be performed LIVE.
Miller plays both live sets and DJ sets, so making his live set centerpiece is appealing to many attendees. After his set on Friday, he will also be playing an after-party DJ set with Said the Sky at The Masquerade. This after-party in such an intimate setting is something that you don’t want to miss out on. $1 from each ticket sale will be benefiting the Songs for Kids Foundation, an organization that brings music to kids with terminal and rare diseases.
The Colorado native began making music in 2013 and has quickly improved and grown substantially, especially in the last year: his “breakout year”. His early releases include a project featuring similar melodic-sounding Said the Sky titled “Drop Our Hearts Part I and II,” a self-titled EP, and numerous track releases since.
The Said the Sky collaboration helped Illenium develop the sound he has established now, including everything from powerful original tracks to beautifully remastered remixes to popular artists. Last year in February 2016 was the release of his debut album Ashes which helped to establish Miller’s credibility in the electronic music world and brought attention to his name.
His most recent release, “Fractures” featuring Nevve, features an intimate and emotional track that showcases Miler’s soft side. The live instrument usage and stirring vocals by Nevve possibly foreshadow what more Miller might have in store for 2017.
Miller’s most influential show of 2016, according to fans, was his Global Dance Music Festival set at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Denver, Colorado. After this set, he received nothing but praise on multiple social media outlets and left fans excited for what is to come by the producer.
Many are anticipating something spectacular from Illenium in the 2017 festival season. With his special live Shaky Beats performance and after-party set, hopefully, his momentum from 2016 continues and he proceeds to make 2017 his best year yet.
