This post was originally published on this site

Since his debut in 2013, Colorado producer Illenium has pushed the envelope with his feels-inducing musical creations. He’s thrilled the electronic music scene with his innovative originals and remixes, selling out venues wherever he goes.

Now, he follows up his sophomore album, Awake, with a stunning 15-track remix package for that same collection of music. He tapped the talents of some of the scene’s most inventive names for the set of reworks, and the result is a diverse compilation that truly has something for everyone.

From the heavier remix from The Glitch Mob of “Crawl Outta Love” to the euphoric Crystal Skies rework of “Let You Go” to Au5 and Fractal‘s drum & bass-injected version of “Sound of Walking Away,” Illenium has pulled together an exceptional body of work that displays varied interpretations of some of his best music to date.

The Awake remix package is out now on Seeking Blue.
