As spoiled as the Northwest is when it comes to the best in dance music touring throughout our region, we’ll always accept more. When Excision makes six stops in five Northwest cities in late-January to kick-off his 2016 ‘The Paradox’ tour, he’ll understand exactly what we mean. The British Columbia-native consistently makes a point of annually touring in the Northwest, playing shows in places from BC to Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and beyond. In the last half of this year, Excision has played two shows in our region, performing alongside the best in bass at Shambhala 2015 in August, and the Seattle stop of the Safe In Sound 2015 tour in October.
Beginning the tour with two Vancouver shows on Januarasy 22nd & 23rd, Excision will then showcase his new stage production, ‘The Paradox’, with 150,000 watts of PK Sound in Spokane, Eugene, Portland, and Boise on consecutive nights. While the lack of a Seattle tour stop is somewhat disappointing, any reasonable Northwest bass-head should more than understand the lack of a booking, just a few months removed from his special guest appearance at Safe In Sound, and his annual set at Shambhala.
Excision, also known as Jeff Abel, has made many friends throughout his career, and is bringing two of bass’s best along for the ride on ‘The Paradox’ tour. Figure and Bear Grillz, two of dubstep’s heaviest artists and fan-favorites of bassheads around the globe, feature as support on many of the tour’s stops, and each of the Northwest shows. So, if you’ve missed Safe In Sound, FreakNight, or any of the trio’s recent Northwest shows, here’s more than a couple of chances to make up for it.
You can get tickets to each and every stop on the tour via Excision’s official website, and get pumped up for the upcoming tour by (once again) enjoying his set from Shambhala 2015. Let us know if you’ll be attending one of the shows and how excited you are for ‘The Paradox’ tour by commenting on Facebook, or replying on Twitter!
