On March 26, ILLENIUM played Ultra Music Festival‘s main stage for the very first time—and he made sure to make it count. Throughout the action-packed 68-minute set, Dancing Astronaut’s 2021 Artist of the Year played out hits like “Crawl Outta Love,” newly minted mashups like “Calling” vs “Beautiful Creatures,” and brought out special guests like Tori Kelly for “Blame Myself” and Jon Bellion for an emotional live rendition of “Good Things Fall Apart.” He also debuted two brand new IDs. One of them, “Shivering” featuring Spiritbox, has now landed.
“Shivering,” which ILLENIUM originally teased during his secret ID-only set at Ember Shores, feels like a relative to previous ILLENIUM releases like “Feel Something” with Excision and “Story Of My Life” on account of its heavy trappings. The single manages to maintain the beautiful elements of melodic bass while crossing them with metal-like drums and guitar chords. On top of it all, Canadian heavy metal band Spiritbox supply the song’s chilling vocals, adding a layer of impact to a number that expertly transitions from melodic into heavy and back again.
“Shivering” follows ILLENIUM’s unexpected remix of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way,” debuted to celebrate a Batman collaboration with Electric Family for an exclusive merchandise drop. Stream “Shivering” featuring Spiritbox below.
