Illenium stopped by BBC Radio 1 to provide some evening listening to fans on the Annie Nightingale show via his debut Ignition mix. He constructed a light, yet moving mix that perfectly demonstrated his general ethos. Across thirty minutes, he expertly blended together a melange of tracks which included a couple of his own works such as the newly released “Fractures,” along with tracks by Flume, Seven Lions, and more. He ends the mix with a burst of energy with his re-work to “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers, leaving his audience craving more from the prolific newcomer. Listen to the full mix below.
2017 is shaping up to be an excellent year for Illenium, who already put out one of the year’s biggest tunes in the form of “Fractures” and will be hopefully be releasing his sophomore artist album in the coming months. In addition, he’s among the top tier of artists appearing at a multitude of festivals including Middlelands, Electric Forest, and more.
