At long last, Illenium has just let go of his remix of Halsey‘s pop hit “Without Me,” which he first teased during his EDC Orlando set. His take on the release adds numerous of his own elements while still retaining the original’s ethos. The rising producer spoke about the remix, stating, “I’m stoked to finally get this one out to the world. I’ve always been a huge fan of Halsey, so being able to put my own spin on one of her tracks was really fun. Super happy with how it turned out, and I’m really hoping that it connects with both our fans.”
Illenium drops Halsey’s vocals into his signature future bass foundation, creating a more mellowed feeling, and frames them with guitar riffs and cymbal clangs. As the song progresses, the artist pivots from the instrumental layers into a drop meant to send his large audiences into a heartfelt frenzy. He connects the instrumental and future bass sections with building electronic layers, tying the remix together into a dynamic whole.
