Excision Delivers All Of The Bass With ‘Codename X’

Excision Codename X

One of dubstep’s demigods, raining bass upon us at his every chance, has delivered another batch of incredible tunes. Excision’s Codename X is out today on iTunes and Beatport via his very own Rottun Recordings and, for fans of his Shambhala 2014 set, it’s been a long time coming. It is Excision’s, also known as Jeff Abel, second solo album and first since X Rated in October of 2011.

The Kelowna-native is currently in the middle of the Northwest-leg of his latest Executioner tour, which features 150,000 watts courtesy of PK Sound. He’ll be celebrating the release of Codename X in Portland tonight, after shows in Vancouver and Eugene earlier this week, and a trip to Boise on the schedule for February 4th. The album features collaborations with Pegboard Nerds, The Firm, Downlink, Dion Timmer, and more over the course of 11 tracks, as Excision continues to consistently bringing high-quality bass-heavy tunes to the table.

Releasing an album at the beginning of a tour would generally mean that the artist doing so had taken time off previous to the enormous amount of work that goes into such things. But, Excision is different. He’s somehow able to find the time to release tons of tunes (his and others) and never stops working. Whether it’s running one of bass music’s most important labels in Rottun Recordings, touring and releasing tunes with Destroid, or touring and releasing albums as a solo artist, Excision does it all.

Artists like Excision are what make dance music great, as they continue to test the boundaries of what’s expected, or even seemingly possible. Dubstep most certainly isn’t dead, and thanks to Codename X, us bass-heads have more evidence to back up our argument. Let us know what you think of Excision’s latest solo work and what your favorite track from Codename X is!
