Excision has joined forces once again with longtime collaborator Dion Timmer for a mammoth bass single titled “Salvation” featuring Alexis Donn via Subsidia Records. The track follows the pair’s previous works that span both producers’ catalogs including cuts from Virus, Apex, Plug Me In, Breaking Through, My World, and most recently Arcane. Speaking on their latest collaboration, Subsidia label head shared,
“When Alexis Donn sent me the vocals I instantly knew what I wanted to do with it, and that’s really rare. It’s one of the strongest vocal performances I’ve ever gotten to work on. I really like the message of the lyrics, too. When things are going wrong, you sometimes have to put in a ton of work to improve the situation, not just accept things as they are. I think people always need this reminder.”
“Salvation” perpetuates Excision and Dion Timmer’s patent arrangement of empassioned vocal build ups and compelling basslines that characteristically throttle listeners on a typically intense rollercoaster ride. The complementary combination of each of these three collaborators demonstrates a capacity to tap into both the harder and melodic ends of the spectrum, while putting together an exhilarating experience that all bass enthusiasts can revel in.
