QUIX, a rising star from New Zealand, collaborated with SOFI, a well-known singer-songwriter, actor, choreographer, and all-around performer, for their latest single, ‘DROP ‘EM’.
QUIX traveled to North America for the first time in 2017 for 10 shows and finally completed an astonishing 42 stops. Since then, he’s been tearing up trap scenes and breaking new ground with his unique sound design. After three major tours in 2018, including Coachella and supporting Steve Aoki’s Kolony tour, QUIX had a breakout year with their “Illusions EP” on Dim Mak. It has garnered millions of plays, creatively blending genres with powerful vocals while staying true to QUIX’s signature sound. He was also honored by Spotify to be featured on the covers of two of their biggest international dance playlists, Mint and Dance Rising, and officially remixed for artists like Steve Aoki, GASHI, RL Grime, and more.
Released via Steve Aoki’s imprint, Dim Mak Records, ‘DROP ‘EM’, marks the first collaboration of QUIX and SOFI. A nostalgic treat for longstanding fans of electronic dance music and new listeners alike, SOFI’s performance – most famous for her collaborations with deadmau5 on his breakthrough ‘4×4=12‘ album (‘Sofi Needs a Ladder‘ and ‘One Trick Pony‘) – delivers flare and sass with her rap-like vocals. The seamless blending of hard-hitting basslines and danceable melodies in ‘DROP ‘EM’ demonstrates QUIX’s creative prowess and makes it a promising future festival song that’s sure to go viral this season. Both musicians have a lot to say about the inspiration for the song.
