Eight things we learned from Illenium’s Reddit AMA

Coloradoan producer Illenium has been making a name for himself over the past few years with his innovative style of melodic beats, massive collaborations and his debut album, Ashes. This summer, he seems to be on almost every major festival lineup, with stops at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, EDC, Firefly, and more. In preparation for this ambitious set of summer dates, he’s been releasing new music and even took the time to do an AMA on Reddit. Here are eight things we learned from his Q&A session on May 9.

1. He started producing five years ago in GarageBand after he saw Bassnectar at Red Rocks.

2. His collab “Rush Over Me” with Seven Lions was done via email.

3. He looks up to Kaskade.

4. He’s hoping to bring some live vocalists for his EDC performance.

5. We can expect a new Illenium album by late summer.

6. We’ll see an Illenium x Zeds Dead collaboration at some point.

7. Like most kids who grew up in the ’90s, he loves Land Before Time.

8. He’s been listening to k?d, Boombox Cartel, RL Grime, Kasbo, and Dabin lately.
