Canadian DJ Jeff Abel is renowned as the master of bass music. Excision being his stage name, he is also a music producer who has worked for numerous Canadian dub-step artists such as Downlink, Datsik and Dion Timmer (a Dutch producer). Jeff’s music is described best by terms like enlightenment, overload, destruction, brutal filth and morphing. It is the name of the man itself that presets a terrifying image- ‘a forced and mangled extraction or removal by forcefully cutting’. However alike that suggested by the name, the sounds aren’t that filthy, unforgiving and brutal.
Excision is the founder of the Routtun Recordings. He started his musical journey in the year 2004 but the ups and down he went through landed up with his first official music release in the year 2007. As of the present status, he has another recording company with the label “Destroid Music”. Talking of his first album, it was released with numerous other artists such as Space Laces, Downlink, Fat Too Loud and Bassnectar. However, almost all the tracks are created by Jeff. It is in the year 2013 that he came up with his single album that was titled “Get Stupid”. This one was released under the label of his second recording company- Destroid Label.

It is in this very tour that he featured “Executioner”, a new3 video by him and has also bought another 1, 50,000 watt new sound system for that tour.
