Excision,born as Jeff Abel, is an dubstep DJ and producer from Canada. He frequently works with fellow Canadian dubstep producer Downlink.He is known for his dark, bass-heavy music, incorporating the morphing basslines of drum and bass, the aggressive energy of metal, and the laid-back vibes of hip-hop.
Excision only started producing music in 2004 and since then has become one of the most prominent musicians in the North American dubstep community, along with his friend and frequent collaborator Datsik.
The sounds that Excision creates in his songs have become an ongoing topic of discussion within the dubstep community. There has been much debate over how these sounds are created, but Excision is known to use Steinberg Cubase, Apple Logic, Native Instruments Massive, Linplug Albino 3, and Access Virus TI. His recordings from the Shambhala Music Festival in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 have received millions of downloads and are available for free.
Excision released his first album, X Rated, on September 12, 2011 through mau5trap and in early 2012 he embarked on the North American "X Tour" with Liquid Stranger & Lucky Date.
