Illenium and Kerli get together and produce ear candy that’s not very easy to walk away from. It’s addicting, wonderfully crafted, and bodacious. “Sound of Walking Away” is out on Seeking Blue/Kasaya, shortly after an astounding collaboration on “Feel Good” with melodic dance producer Gryffin and GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist Daya.
Nick Miller, the Denver-based producer better known by Illenium, has been gradually working his way into the music charts since his 2013 debut. “Sound of Walking Away” features Estonian vocalist Kerli and is built on a cunning electric guitar. It then morphs into the Illenium drop that is signature and expected in every one of his tunes.
“Sound of Walking Away” reels you in with Kerli’s angelic vocals at the beginning, and then slowly builds. The drop, which is really what doesn’t let you walk away, hits with an incredibly powerful kick drum. The soft, atmospheric, side-chained saw pads and distant vocals keep you on the edge throughout the drop.
Kerli’s ethereal vocals are instantly recognizable due to her work with the likes of Sevon Lions, Benny Benassi, and SNBRN. She is no stranger to versatility in music production, having Billboard No. 1 hits and impeccable dubstep-infused works under her belt.
Starting in May at The Masquerade with bass producer Said The Sky, fans can capture Illenium’s mind-bending tour that most certainly won’t be easy to walk away from.
