There are a few ways to interpret the stage name Illenium. It could be a reference to the artist’s generation (the millennials). Or it could be a remark on how this is going to be the “illest” or best Millennium yet. Or still, it might represent the new Millennium of techno, dub, and electronic dance movement. Or maybe we’re reaching, and it’s just a name – with no meaning behind it. Only Nicholas Miller, the DJ behind the name, knows. If you ever meet him, don’t forget to ask! To meet him, though, you’re going to have to go to a show. And whether you meet him or not – we highly recommend seeing him live!
Who is Illenium?
Nicholas Miller was born in San Francisco, but moved to Denver, a surprising capital of EDC music, in 2013. He started playing parties and clubs there, eventually putting out his EP the next year. Like many EDM artists, he started by remixing already-popular genre songs. How did he know those remixes were successful? The original artists themselves (like ODESZA) gave them a nod of approval. With that success behind him, he put out his first full-length original album, Ashes, in 2016.
There are a lot of EDM artists who dismiss popular music in its entirety. Illenium is not one of those artists. He’s not afraid to reach out and collab with pop artists, as he did on “Takeaway” with The Chainsmokers. Genre crossing, of course, is the way you get major-station radio play in the US. It seems like a smart move to us! If you like your EDM music with a little bit of personality and emotion in the lyrics, between drops, then you’ll love Illenium. He’s headlining quite a few tours in the upcoming seasons, so be sure to check it out.
