QUIX delivers heartfelt tribute to Mr. Carmack by flipping ‘Rogue’Qui Mr Carmack

QUIX has delivered a beautiful tribute to Mr. Carmack by reworking “Rogue” off the Hawaiian’s Bang Vol. 3 project. On the heels of his “Look Back” remix for Diplo and DRAM, the New Zealand bass producer creates a celestial, orchestral build with a synthscape, future bass hook, punching snares, and vinyl texture.

QUIX wholeheartedly admitted Mr. Carmack is his inspiration, playing a major role in his perspective about music production. The original “Rogue” was the first track he ever heard of Carmack’s, and after that, down the rabbit hole he went into the prolific beatmaker’s seemingly endless original library.

Noting this very special connection, the producer currently on his QUIX summer tour took the time to praise his inspiration and draw attention to the care and detail put forward by his tribute.

“Mr. Carmack is actually my absolute inspiration and he’s played a big part in my music perspective over the years,” he says in the track description. “I just didn’t want to make a generic future bass flip of this track but I wanted to make something I really felt connected to and something that made me feel special for the intro/build and into the drop.”

Amsterdam Dance Event

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Chopped vocal samples and hip hop-inflected rhythmic additions make for an eccentric sound on Hanz‘s “Clutched.”

Progressive mastery is alive and well on “Keep My Light On,” a single that sees DubVision and Raiden team up for a release on Martin Garrix‘s imprint, STMPD Records.

Headhunterz makes his return to hardstyle production via a massive new LP, The Return of Headhunterz.  

Anjunabeats entity, Jason Ross puts forth his first single of 2018, “Through It All,” an uplifting number that harmoniously balances Fiora‘s soaring vocal with the song’s ascending synths.

Black Tiger Sex Machine make a statement on New Worlds, an album that sees the Canadian trio wield trap, bass, and electro production elements.

Dance music’s saccharine sweetheart Marshmello links up with Logic for “Everyday,” a single that epitomizes the carefree vibe characteristic of Friday.

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge jointly take on Signum and Scott Mac‘s “Coming on Strong.”

Paris Blohm and Myah Marie prove to be a collaborative dream on “Body High.”

Element constructs the quintessential filthy drop on his hard-hitting new release, “Needles.”

A soothing guitar melody complements Nevve‘s fluid vocal contribution on Boombox Cartel‘s latest, “Whisper.”

Ookay channels the bouncy synth work that has come to be characteristic of a Marshmello production on his whimsical new offering, “Loved or Lost.”

QUIX and JVMIE’s “I’ll Give You The World” is an expert example of lush future bass production.

Reminiscent of Foster the People and Portugal. The Man, the vocals in Lemaitre‘s “Machine” create an indie-infused groove.

Tisoki takes on Oliverse‘s “Leave Them Behind,” flipping the track into a smooth-gliding dubstep rendition.

KDrew and KVNNIBVL bring the weekend vibes with a smattering of falsetto-like vocals and a lighthearted, bobbing beat in “Body of Gold.”

This music video is dope as hell, just like the audio was when it first dropped. The extremely far-out, trippy, animated futuristic visuals are the perfect ‘vision’ for the out of control combination of sounds and feels by this group of next level producers. I’d really love to see more collaborations by these four, shit

What So Not is evidently aiming for the top in 2018. The artist has been laying low for most of the year besides a few shows and a B2B tour with Baauer… other than that he has been preparing for his worldwide takeover in 2018 with the release of his yet to be titled debut LP.

Premiere: UZ – Lobby ft QUIX & Chaz French (sumthin sumthin Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Experimental DJ-producer sumthin sumthin has delivered his rendition of UZ‘s “Lobby” featuring QUIX and Chaz French. The song is to be featured on the extensive remix album accompanying UZ’s Layers LP, released earlier this year via UZ’s own Quality Goods Records. Also released recently on Quality Goods was sumthin sumthin’s own Afterglow EP. The four-track EP displays the California-based artist’s innovative, genre-defiant production technique.

Sumthin sumthin has added his own wonky twist to the original melodic trap framework of “Lobby.” In addition to the heavily pitched-down bass, sumthin sumthin has also infused a bit of strangeness into the track with his own fragmented, shattered glass-reminiscent sampling. Still audible are the metallic textures from UZ’s initial effort, though the remix features a more warped, glitchy sound design.

What So Not & QUIX give away their edit of AWOLNATION’s ‘Run’ [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

AWOLNATION‘s “Run” shows off the band’s aptitude in electronic sound design, making the single an ideal candidate for re-molding. This reality finally manifested when prolific bass talents What So Not and QUIX elected to provide their take on the piece, and the result is quite raunchy.

The pair amplify the original’s hardened nature with a trap layout, creating an even more tense feel by moving the strong portions to the beginning and cascading into a deep pit of bass and wild synthesizers. If their aim was to design a piece to rattle the dancefloor, they’ve certainly accomplished it in full force.

What So Not has had quite a busy year in 2017, making each release a welcome treat by fans. Meanwhile, QUIX has been steadily burrowing his way into the bass sphere with a plethora of remixes and collaborations with other burgeoning talent.
