Having surged his way to center stage with his unmistakeable output on the trap tip, the New Zealander known as QUIX flexes in an entirely new way on his latest outing on Dim Mak.
Teaming up with Jaden Michaels, a Nashville singer/songwriter whose collaborative credits include a whose who in the pop music world, the resulting “Make Up Your Mind” is a straight up drum and bass burner destined for the festival circuit. As QUIX tells it, the tune is in many ways a nod to his homeland, New Zealand, where drum and bass reigns supreme.
Since music knows no borders, we can easily imagine the vibe of this one crossing over into massive and clubs alike as the emotion-charged vocals of Jaden ride on the turbocharged energy that QUIX hammers home on every front.
“I actually started writing this beat last year during a twitch stream,” QUIX says. “Funnily enough, Jaden had already sent me the topline months before. Essentially, I mashed up the beat with her vocal and surprised myself with how well they worked together. I’ve never made a DnB song like this before, and I wanted to challenge myself to incorporate the mainstream style with my signature style.”
The drum and bass flex is in full effect as QUIX rides the vibe all the way through to the very last drop. It’s a true testament to QUIX’s abilities as a producer but also to the almighty power of bass at 170+ beats per minute.
