There are melodic bass producers, and then there is Nick Miller. The Denver-based producer known as Illenium has been turning heads in the dance music community over the past year and for good reason. Illenium has distinguished himself from the myriad of others through an unrivaled ability to create an immersive emotional experience of highs and lows that pulls on the heart strings and leaves the listener awestruck, accomplishing in the span of just a few short minutes what takes many a full set. He has displayed an adeptness for creating aural arrangements that vary in style, yet always maintain beauty, complexity and emotional depth. Illenium gave the world a taste of what he has to offer in 2014 with standout originals "Falling In," "So Wrong," "Make Me Do;" remixes of Dawn Golden, Odesza, Oh Wonder; and performances at Global Dance Festival, Decadence NYE and other select dates. However, as foreshadowed by his inclusion in UKF's "Ones to Watch: 15 for 2015," this is poised to be Illenium's breakout year.
Crywolf, otherwise known as Justin Taylor Phillips, is an electronic music producer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles, CA. Since Crywolf's conception just over two years ago, his epic, melodic, lyrical-based take on electronic music has been met with support from international acts such as Ellie Goulding, Arty, Adventure Club, The Crystal Method and more. After signing with Le Castle Vania's label, Always Never last year, his debut EP "Ghosts" was met with immediate success soaring to #18 on iTunes Dance Charts, top 20 on Hype Machine, and #1 on on the first day. Crywolf's most recent effort "Angels", set the tone for his signature sound and proved his arrival as an artist by blowing Ghosts out of the water - debuting at #3 on iTunes Electronic and charting at #24 on Billboard Electronic Charts. With loads more music set to be released in the coming year, Crywolf is poised to launch to heights never thought possible by the young multi-talented artist.

"Sultry vocals with crisp, effervescent production that carries the listener along on glistening waves of pure, sonic radiance"

" deep and has so much power and emotion behind the tone and lyrics, it's crazy…I've truly never listened to anything quite like it."
- This Song Slaps

"…one of my favorite new producers…dance powered tracks with electronic elements that have an amazing sound."
- This Song Is Sick

"Crywolf doesn't really care what everyone is doing around him. He doesn't care to bend around a genre. He doesn't care… at all. He exists in his own bubble, and I think that's where his subtle brilliance comes from."
- Earmilk
William Black
Gaining influence from a wide spectrum of artists, William Black has set out to deliver quality music that contributes to an emotional state of mind. William has only just immersed himself in the dance music scene, but he has already caught the eye of Gareth Emery who supported his remix of "Emotional" by Flux Pavilion & Matthew Koma, and Adventure Club who regularly play the remix he did of their song "Thunderclap". William's remix for Australian based singer Evangeline charted 3 in the US on Spotify and number 5 Globally.
