Taking Care of Business: with ILLENIUM and Steve Bartels


Taking Care of Business: with ILLENIUM and Steve Bartels

A decade since releasing his first EP "Risen" and now five albums later, ILLENIUM is one of the most popular names in U.S. electronic music. The Grammy Award nominated, Billboard Chart topping artist fills the biggest U.S. stadiums and has been critically lauded for his output as both an artist and an in-demand king of remixes (artists such as Taylor Swift, Halsey, Flume and JVKE among them). Nick Miller’s 10-year run as the producer & artist 'ILLENIUM' has been nothing short of astounding, garnering 7 billion global streams to date. At ADE Beats ILLENIUM and music industry veteran Steve Bartels of MusicBartels LLC - and prior, a key principal of 12Tone Music, CEO of Def Jam Recordings and President Island Records - will present their unique business perspective, combining mutual expertise in a wide range of electronic music, hip-hop, bass and beats related projects, and creating a diverse scope of exciting outlets for ILLENIUM’s unique talent and highly successful sound, with elements of trap music, dubstep, rock, trance and future bass. They will discuss the current and future characteristics of the U.S. scene,how they intend on taking their diverse business experience to a global stage with many new opportunities they see and have created in its ever-evolving live market, and how ILLENIUM'S overall business portfolio -and his team- is evolving, with specific strategies driving to superserve & continue in building the global fan community he has built deep relationships with over the years.
