Excision’s Paradox Pulverizes a Sold-out HOB Orlando [photo gallery]
This past weekend, Central Florida was shaken to it’s foundation in a bass-heavy throwdown that took place at Orlando’s House of Blues. The event sold out, as have most of the shows have on round two of Excision’s Paradox run; a tour with the production likes of a chest-rattling 150,000 watts of PK sound, as well as supporting talent from some of the heaviest hitters in the game. Cookie Monsta, Barely Alive, and Dion Timmer were up first, amplifying the hype for the one-and-only Jeff Abel to take the stage and bring his mind-boggling stage structure to life.
Hailing from Massachusetts, USA, bass project Barely Alive was launched in 2013 – and the dynamic duo already has already been represented by the likes of record labels such as Disciple, Skrillex’s OWSLA, Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and more. Supporting artists such as Datsik, Skism, Excision, Trolley Snatcha and more on tours throughout the US and beyond, Barely Alive’s ambition is driving their tracks to chart-topping status, which the twosome is well-deserved of.
All though he’s a UK native, Cookie Monsta has been all over the US dubstep map since he started producing unto Circus Records, a prestigious label founded by names like Flux Pavilion and Doctor P – artists with whom he has worked heavily with. Tracks like “Ruff” ft. Tima Dee and “Soundboy” from his latest Wobble EP have garnered Cookie Monsta mass amounts of support from his fans, and there’s no telling what he’ll throw at us next.
Canadian-born Jeff Abel AKA Excision destroyed the crowd with lasers beaming from his massive Paradox stage.
Fans were entranced by the vortex of colors spewing across the stage as Excision dropped devious bass in the form of 150,000 neck-breaking watts of PK sound, a staple of his Paradox tour production.
The hardcore X man fans were most definitely in full flex as they threw their X’s up at the sold-out HOB event.
Of course, we know every Excision show would be incomplete without him playing “Robo Kitty“, an outrageous banger with even crazier visuals.
Mosh pits ensued as he threw down tracks like Destroid’s “Raise Your Fists”, then quickly turned into shuffle city when the crowd heard songs such as “Crank It” by Mija and Ghastly.
