Canadian DJ and producer Excision is an inimitable talent. Eluding expectations at every turn he continues his rapid ascent to international acclaim with each step, leaving a string of blown speakers and stunned clubbers in his wake.
Now, having officially joined the Mau5trap clan with Deviation - a collaborative effort with long-time sparring partner Datsik that featured on the recent Meowingtons Hax compilation - we are proud to announce the next chapter in his story with the release of his debut album X Rated. One of the earliest proponents of dubstep in North America, Excision has played an integral part in the international growth of the burgeoning scene and pioneering new interpretations of the sound. Ever since releasing his sell out debut single No Escape on his own Rottun Recordings label in 2007, Excision has defiantly created his own path and has not diverged from it since remaining resolutely singular in everything he does. Dissecting an eclectic array of influences in his tracks that stretches from drum and bass to hip hop, metal to electro, his productions are always both unique and progressive. Ten tracks strong, X Rated allows Excision the room to spread his creative wings and explore the diversity of his tastes and myriad of facets to his sizeable production talents. He is also joined by a number of like-minded collaborators on the album who help him to bring his vision to life, with appearances from Messinian, Downlink, Datsik, Savvy, SkisM and Mr Hudson. You can be assured that X Rated packs enough heat to send any club into pandemonium, but Excision has created more than just a collection of tracks with this album. This is a masterfully crafted mission statement that gives the fullest insight into the breadth and depth of his talent yet. (added: 2011-11-22 09:14:06 )
