Listen: Mr Fijiwiji Remix of “Fortress” from Illenium’s “Ashes Remixes”

By Alex Brown - 20.12.16

Denver-based melodic bass producer Illenium has released “Ashes Remixes” via Seeking Blue and Kasaya Records. The San Francisco-born EDM artist has already notched up a No. 1 spot on the iTunes Electronic Charts for his debut album  “Ashes, and now offers a selection of high-profile artist remixes.

After honing his skills in the bass music sphere, Illenium has gone on to remix Kaskade, Odesza and Galantis and has performed at Red Rocks himself. Shortly after releasing his debut album ‘Ashes’, in early 2016,  Illenium’s  “Fortress (ft Joni Fatora)” went viral on Spotify.

“Fortress” was quickly handed to Mr Fijiwiji for remix duties. Mr Fijiwiji is the pseudonum of paper headbag-obsessed Brendan Galdo. His slow, ethereal take on the track is a bold deviation from what fans of EDM might put at the top of their playlist, but lives and breathes with its own clicky, snappy energy and must-have vocal pitching regardless. An album closer if ever there was one.
