All great things have to come to a conclusion, and we have discovered that additionally comprises Excision’s beloved The Paradox in 2020.
The dubstep legend has officially announced that he will be debuting a brand new audiovisual experience to welcome the new year called The Evolution at The Thunderdome, which will be taking place at the Tacoma Dome in Washington in January.
While he doesn’t say we’re bidding farewell to The Paradox, it’s hard to believe he won’t be hitting the road with this new The Evolution production after its debut.
Check out Excision‘s official announcement below. Tickets for this event on sale Thursday at buytickets.com.
Headbangers, prepare for The Evolution. The brand new audiovisual experience premieres at the Thunderdome Jan 31+Feb 1. Tix on sale Thursday??
In honor of the release of the newest Super Smash Bros. game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we decided to have some fun and imagine some of the characters as EDM artists. Below are some of our favorite pairings.
7. Mario – Diplo
Since the 1980s, everyone’s favorite Italian plumber has been participating in a variety of fun activities like saving princesses, racing go-karts, and beating the shit out of the childhood characters you hold near and dear to your heart. Mario’s constant shift in style and form is quite similar to Diplo’s career.
Like Mario, you never really know what the Mad Decent boss is going to do next. We’re not sure if Diplo has ever saved any kingdoms. He is, however, a member of some of EDM’s biggest groups like Major Lazer, Jack Ü, Silk City, and LSD (although, Mario prefers mushrooms).
6. Samus – Rezz
When listening to Rezz it’s not uncommon to feel like you’re barrelling through space and time. The one they call “Space Mom” has left her mark on dance music with her dark, futuristic sound that perfectly accompanies Samus’ alien slaying.
Now this isn’t a perfect comparison as Samus’ Metroid series hasn’t delved into satanic rituals and soul stealing, but dark reboots are trendy right now so who knows what the future may hold.
5. Bowser – Excision
If you’re familiar with Excision’s Lost Lands Festival, you know that he loves giant dinosaurs. It just so happens that Bowser is a giant dinosaur… See where we’re going with this one?
The overwhelming power of the king of the koopas resembles Excision’s aggressive take on dubstep. His bone-crushing sound would lead you to believe that he can breathe fire, although we’ve reached out to his management to confirm this and have not heard back.
4. Pikachu – Skrillex
One of the most beloved and well-known figures in gaming deserves a worthy dance music counterpart. Similar to how many grew up on Pokémon cartoons and games, many of the current generation of dance music fans grew up on Skrillex, who would become one of the figureheads in modern-day dance music.
That being said, we’re not sure Pikachu dances like this:
3. Kirby – Porter Robinson
Porter Robinson’s debut album Worlds took listeners on a journey to a far away land of dreams and underlying darkness. Kirby’s Dream Land mirrors this with it’s pink clouds and monsters that our family-friendly protagonist kills then swallows whole.
Plus, listening to “Shelter” definitely makes us feel soft and pink inside.
2. Link – Armin Van Buuren
The hero of time needs a dance music counterpart who’s stood the test of time. Unlike most of the artists on this list, Armin van Buuren has been one of the biggest dance music artists in the world for almost two decades.
Like the dozens of games in The Legend of Zelda series, Armin van Buuren’s discography has enough entries that old school fans (see: trance snobs) can flex on new fans by name dropping songs that came out before they were born.
1. Yoshi – Any Riddim Producer
Is Yoshi a dinosaur or a lizard? Is riddim just heavier dubstep? Is that red thing on his back a spot or a saddle? All of these things are the cause of too many arguments on the internet.

Bass music fans — the second yearly Lost Lands Festival is significantly much less than 30 days off! This past year, Lost Lands debuted for the first time and immediately became a fan favorite holiday season. One of the chief reasons it had been such a success is because Jeff Abel, better called Excision, along with his staff put a lot of effort to the making of it.
On account of the success of Lost Lands 2017, Excision started to program for 2018 as soon as the 2017 festival had finished. He and his team have worked to ensure fans have a much better experience this year. In his Headbanger Facebook band page that he asked for questions, queries and much more to make Lost Lands 2018 as good as you can. Everything from the lineup to choosing food vendors, Excision paid focus on all fan feedback and has been tremendously involved in every detail.
Lost Lands 2018 will have two full size main stages this season plus 1,000,000 watts of bass brought to you by PK Sound gear. That is A LOT of bass, don’t forget to bring your earplugs! This past year, volcanoes about the stage taken fire in addition to heaps of lasers, pyrotechnics, and even giant dinosaurs produced an appearance. This past season, you can definitely expect production and also three times more dinosaurs.
After the festival is finished there will be Sound Camps which are going to be heading off during the evening. There are just six distinctively themed Sound Camps, special guest appearances, and surprise collections by Lost Lands artists. The Sound Camp includes a dedicated campground region at which you’ll be transported to a new world. Each stage at the Sound Camps will incorporate its very own unique theme design.
Other new changes this season include, expanded car camping areas — 50 sq ft. bigger, ancient entry pre-party inside festival grounds together with surprise b2b places Thursday night, silent camping, themed Sound Camps, along with also the 1,000,000 watts of bass. All of this was made possible because of the fan feedback that has been taken into account.
Lastly, I don’t have to say how stacked this years lineup is with numerous performances by Excision all weekend and other bass artists comprise Flux Pavilion, Illenium, Nero, Rezz, plus much more.
This past year, I saw that the festivities throughout the livestream at Couch Lands, where I saw and headbanged all weekend from my couch at home. This season I am excited to visit Lost Lands and experience it. Are you going? Allow me to know!
Still thinking about it? Act fast, GA tickets along with camping is 75% sold out. You’re able to get the rest of the tickets HERE.
