QUIX releases sophomore EP, ‘Illusions’Unnamed 2

QUIX has released his second extensive EP offering entitled Illusions. The six-track release sees the New Zealand producer and DJ come into his own, with a range of engaging, dynamic work throughout the EP standing to solidify him as a creative force in the world of bass and future bass music. Ever the juggernaut, this EP continues a slew of exemplary releases from the rising star.

Illusions follows the release of the emotionally engaging single “Giving Up,” featuring Jaden Michaels on vocals, and the track is a microcosm of what the EP offers. With each track offering new insight into varying moods and music that ebbs and flows stylistically from R&B, trap, bedroom future bass and wavy electronica, Illusions is immediately attention grabbing, continuing to captivate as it progresses.

QUIX will embark on a North American tour in conjunction with this release, kicking off this past weekend in Vancouver. Find more information here.

Vincent bends genres in new track with Ayelle, ‘We Could’Vincent We Could

Canadian-based producer Vincent has made a name for himself by continuously demonstrating his mastery of trap and experimentation. After a hit release with QUIX, the producer is back with new music in the form of “We Could” featuring Ayelle. The track doesn’t feature his typical trap chords, but rather blends subtle future bass notes with soothing vocals. With soothing introductory chords that lead into heavier bass, Vincent has created a unique blend of catchy and calming, giving the track capacity to enamor in both live sets and radio play. Its uplifting qualities and stellar production make it an exceptional addition to Vincent’s discography.

Vincent is unique in that he has self-released many of his remixes and originals. For this latest release, though, the producer has decided to team up with PRMD Music.

Brownies & Lemonade has spent years making a name for itself on the Los Angeles party circuit. Now known for putting on shows with impeccably on-trend bass, trap and future artists, open aux cord nights, secret venues, even more secret lineups, B&L has become a stalwart in the LA electronic scene through grassroots measures.

But the spontaneous and secretive nature of the events they put on is now shifting. After weeks of teasing new party locations on Twitter, the group announced its first-ever Brownies & Lemonade tour. Featuring the party’s frequently featured artists like Alexander Lewis, CRAY, KRANE, Luca Lush and Vincent, the tour will kick off on September 29 in San Diego. With nine total dates culminating in a show on December 8 in Houston, Brownies & Lemonade will tour the western half of North America. More information is available on the B&L website, where tickets are on sale now.

QUIX teams up with Vincent for hard-hitting ‘Hero’

New Zealand native QUIX has had a steady rise, thanks to hard-hitting releases on the likes of Mad Decent and Dim Mak. The producer has released another track on Dim Mak, and this time he has linked up with Vincent and vocalist David Shane to collaborate on the song.

“Hero” is not a track for those looking for some airy chords and a melodic drop. Shane’s vocals are radio-worthy with polarizing soprano notes that lure the listener in. While the song is seemingly smooth at the get-go, it falls into a commanding bass drop. Knife-like chords are layered over the bass to kick up the energy, making the track the perfect one for bass lovers to get their night going.

BLAISE – Love The Way [Prod. by Whethan]

This post was originally published on this site

BLAISE has been making fast moves as of late, propelling himself into the scene with his viral single “Dua” — a catchy love song to the English superstar — which received a stellar remix from DJ/producer Vincent. As one of Atlantic Records‘ newest signees, the singer/songwriter is definitely one to keep an eye on with the release of his new single “Love The Way” produced by Whethan.

The multi-talented musicians collaborated prior on BLAISE’s track “Aw Yeah,” taking this latest release to grave new heights. Whethan creates a downtempo, R&B-esque bass-line that drops into off-beat, distorted synths, complimenting the LA-based singer’s smooth, heartfelt vocals.

Vibes abound on Vincent’s stunning new single, ‘Show Me’

Vincent productions make for easy listening, and the Canadian artist’s latest offering is a foray into airy aesthetics of sound.

Entitled “Show Me,” the single features Aviella, whom listeners might easily take for Jhene Aiko, given the tonal similarity, and the pure, weightless quality of both Aiko’s and Aviella’s vocals.

A low tempo background beat melts into futuristically styled drops that ebb and flow in fluid progression, the single a chilled-out newcomer to Vincent’s growing catalog.

Grandtheft – Square One ft MAX (Vincent Remix)

Grandtheft wrapped up 2017 with a massive original called “Square One” with vocalist MAX. In the months since, it’s garnered hundreds of thousands of plays and even had a music video released earlier this year. The latest “Square One” news is a rework by Los Angeles producer Vincent.

Vincent’s remix is combative and wild, incorporating grinding synths and full-bodied bass to take the song up a notch.

“Once the original track came out I started playing it in my sets – it has so much character and the sound selection drew me in,” Vincent says of the song. “I wanted to give it a grittier and more aggressive sound while trying to incorporate the elements I loved most. Something harder for everyone that remembers XVII and before my new original music comes out.”

Blaise – Dua (Vincent Remix)

LA-based DJ/producer Vincent puts a trapped-out spin on Blaise’s track “Dua,” a serenade of sorts expressing his love for rising UK artist Dua Lipa.

In a description posted to Vincent’s SoundCloud, the artist reveals he had a lot of fun making this one:

“When I heard the original track I couldn’t help but laugh and dance around…this is for the middle of a set where the energy can be taken to another level or the last song you play before getting out of the car and walk into a venue for a show.”

Vincent includes a dark piano melody with some hard-hitting bass and distorted revs that are certain to liven up any atmosphere.

 

Listen to James Blake cover Don McLean’s ‘Vincent’

This post was originally published on this site

James Blake has gifted fans a studio recording of Don McLean’s “Vincent,” a frequent addition to his live sets over the past year. Alongside the track, the producer also posted a video of himself recording the cover live at Los Angeles’ Conway Studios earlier this month.

McLean’s original was written in tribute to Vincent Van Gogh and originally appeared on his 1971 LP American Pie. While the track’s not an outright holiday song, it does make mention of a “starry, starry, night,” which is befitting both as an ode to the late painter and as one to the warm, inviting air of the holidays.

Canadian DJ/Producer Vincent continues on the path that kickstarted his career — his remix of The Chainsmokers‘ “Paris” — by debuting a spin on Marshmello‘s track “Wolves” featuring Selena Gomez that is nothing short of exceptional.

Vincent is sure to “maintain the integrity of the original” (as he indicates in the SoundCloud description), yet puts his own spin on it that gives off positive vibes only. With a similar, slowed tempo and instrumental elements on the verses, he creates a drop that includes synchronized synths and pitch vocals that adds a unique, feel-good take on the hit track.
