Event Review: Excision Takes Over The Wellmont Theatre
By Anthony Cordero & Michael Toscano
In the EDM arms race for bigger and better production rigs, Excision’s Paradox stage stands alone. After debuting in late 2015, The Paradox was dubbed “the future of production,” a fitting title if you ask anyone who has been blown away by 225,000 watts of sound.
After crushing Forbidden Kingdom on back-to-back nights, Excision bought the Apex Tour to Montclair, New Jersey for the first time. He brought along HE$H, Sullivan King, and Squnto as support. This was a huge win for the New Jersey EDM and dubstep communities because we rarely get EDM events in New Jersey.

When it was time for him to come on he addressed the crowd from behind a huge black curtain covering the stage and asked the crowd if we were ready and we definitely weren’t ready at all!

He’s one of the best in the game and he did not disappoint in Montclair. I hope after this incredible turn out Excision brings back his tour next year to New Jersey and I hope this inspires more EDM artists to come to NJ as well!
A pioneering figure in dubstep, Excision has been showing off his custom rig throughout his tour, which includes two shows in New York City at the Hammerstein Ballroom on March 8th and March 9th. Excision also recently shared his Lost Lands 2018 Mix, which can be downloaded for free on SoundCloud here.
