Illenium is the recording alias of Nicholas Miller, a producer and DJ who brings unabashed sentimentality and melodicism to festival-ready dubstep and trap. After debuting with several singles in 2014, he began releasing guest-heavy full-lengths starting with 2016's Ashes. All three of his albums reached the Top Ten of Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and 2019's Ascend hit number one.
Originally from San Francisco, Miller began producing electronic music in 2008 and moved to Denver in 2013, where he performed and released music as Illenium. His self-titled debut EP appeared on Los Angeles-based Prep School Recordings that year, followed by Risen in early 2014. The releases were well-received within the EDM community, and Miller issued additional singles as well as remixing songs by ODESZA, Dawn Golden, Oh Wonder, and others. He's performed at festivals including Decadence NYE and Global Dance Festival, in addition to solo tours. His single "I'll Be Your Reason" was released by Nest (a sublabel of Skrillex's OWSLA label) in 2015, and his full-length debut, Ashes, appeared in early 2016 on Seeking Blue and reached number six on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. In 2017, Illenium returned with his second full-length album, Awake, which peaked at number three on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
A remix set of that album arrived the next year, along with a slew of singles, including "God Damnit" with Call Me Karizma and "Gold (Stupid Love)" with Excision and Shallows. More singles continued to appear in 2019, including "Pray" featuring Kameron Alexander and "Good Things Fall Apart" with Jon Bellion, leading up to the August release of Illenium's third LP, Ascend. Issued by Astralwerks, the album topped Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart and reached number 14 on the Billboard 200, helped by the success of the hit single "Takeaway," a collaboration with the Chainsmokers and singer Lennon Stella.
San Francisco native Nick Miller, better known as ILLENIUM is one of Denverís most talked about EDM artists. ILLENIUM began making electronic dance music in early 2008 and quickly became known for his production quality and content. ILLENIUMís latest EP titled, RISEN exemplifies just that. Miller teamed up with the internationally acclaimed Sirma for one of the songs on this EP, after hearing DropTalkís remix of Wanderer and together they created the melodically beautiful track, Drop Our Hearts. This song was the first single from RISEN, premiering on Tuesday December 10th. Drop Our Hearts immediately rose to the #1 position on Dubstep.net.
ILLENIUM got his start on the scene when he released his 2013 debut self-titled EP with LA based record label, Prep School Recordings.
