Jeff Abel, better known by his stage name Excision, is a Canadian dubstep disc jockey and music producer.
Hailing from British Columbia, Canada, Excision frequently works with fellow Canadian dubstep producers Datsik and Downlink. Active since 2004, his first release was in 2007.
Excision's signature sound takes influence from the morphing basslines of drum and bass, the aggressive energy of heavy metal, and the laid back vibes of hip hop.
Upon the selling out and repressing of his 2007 release, "No Escape" on his own label Rottun Recordings, it became apparent that there was a large demand for the aggressive side of dubstep. Excision was later asked by Pendulum to remix their 2009 single "Showdown."
Excision has been known to use the computer software programs Steinberg Cubase, Apple Logic, Native Instruments Massive, Linplug Albino 3, and Access Virus TI in his productions.
His recordings from the Shambhala Music Festival in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 have received millions of downloads and are available for free.
During the year 2011, Excision toured with Downlink and Antiserum throughout the United States of America on the "Subsonic Tour".
In early 2012 he embarked on the North American "X Tour" with Liquid Stranger & Lucky Date.
