Hey Coogs! I hope the spring semester is going well for you! A few days from now, one of the best dubstep artists’ is going to be in town on Friday, March 24th. Excision, also known as Jeff Abel, is a Canadian DJ and producer. He is considered one of the first DJs and producers of dubstep. He often works with other Canadian producers, Datsik and Downlink. Excision’s influence comes heavy metal, hip hop, and the basslines of drum and bass. In 2007, he quickly became popular with his release of “No Escape,” which was produced under his label, Rottun Recordings. After his first release, it was obvious that many listeners tuned into the dubstep genre. So, Excision started booking shows around the world to showcase his aggressive and energetic music. Throughout the years, he has been consistent with releasing his music which allowed him to gain a massive fan base among the dubstep community, including myself.
Excision is currently on his tour, Paradox, after his latest album release, Virus, in October 2016. He will be performing at the Revention Music Center in Houston along with Cookie Monsta and Dion Timmer on Friday, March 24. Want more information about Excision or his music?
