The latest producer adding his personal touch to Illenium's work is Hong Kong based producer WE5. His last release was an immersive and future rendition of NGHTMRE's "Holdin' On to Me". It's evident with each release WE5 is expanding his sound though the exploration of musical styles and more intricate sound designs. Shifting from progressive house tactics to more inventive and one of a kind future bass styles, WE5 is unbound to a specific genres, making his sound flexible and constantly dynamic in it's nature. His latest remix of Illenium's "Without You" is a classy rendition of the already chilled out tune. WE5 adds a kinetic dimensionality to the track with it's fluttering synths that contribute to the overall emotional timbre of the track. Through added vocal manipulations and unique winding sensations of sound, WE5 brings the track forward with his unique take. The lagged blips and percussions slow down the track, drawing listeners in a fully immersed poignance of the remix.
