About Excision

Famous for being the “loudest” DJ in the bass music scene, Excision leads the community with innovative productions. He’s also founded two record labels and an annual dubstep festival.

• He grew up listening to mostly hip-hop and metal, taking influence from metal’s heavy guitar riffs and hip-hop’s tempo and flow.
• An early adopter of dubstep’s grimy sound, he broke out with 2009’s Boom EP, featuring UK-based Flux Pavilion and fellow Canadian Datsik.
• All four of Excision’s studio albums have made Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and three went Top 10. He’s also released numerous compilations, EPs, DJ mixes, and singles.
• In 2013, he formed the dubstep trio Destroid, with Downlink and KJ Sawka joining on midi guitars and drums.
• He earned the title of “loudest DJ” in 2012 when he went on tour with an ear-busting 100,000-watt sound system. He upped the voltage again in 2014 with a 150,000-watt unit, and he continues to perform remarkably loud concerts.
• Dedicating himself to heavy sounds, Excision launched the dinosaur-themed, bass-centric Lost Lands Festival in 2017.
• His most popular tracks are some of his more recent ones—many of which incorporate more melodic elements to expand his sound.
