Bass maestro QUIX has just released his highly anticipated creation “Trust,” which has been blown upon amongst in-the-know fans after Skrillex dropped it in several recent sets. QUIX originally created the track in 2020 as a part of a compilation for charity, never thinking that it would see the light of day (lasers at night) at a festival like Lollapalooza. Opening with a creepy vocal riff and siren-like effects, “Trust” builds into its epic drop, which features a deep, dark bassline along with plenty of serrating mechanical synths to fulfill all of your headbanging fantasies. With its hard-hitting bass and mosh-pit pleasing sound effects, it’s no wonder “Trust” has found its way to one of dubstep’s legends. The track’s popularity spells only good things for QUIX, who has also released “Drop ‘Em” with SOFI earlier this year on Dim Mak, and whose remix of French Montana and DJ Snake‘s “Creep On Me” has become a festival anthem. Keep an eye out for more from this talented producer coming very soon!
“Originally I made it back in 2020, and it was part of a compilation album called “Boost Tape vol.1” (a r/Trap selection of songs that was put on Bandcamp for charity). After being approached to be involved in the compilation, I scrolled through some unfinished projects on my computer. I found “Trust,” polished it off, and sent it in, not really thinking it would get crazy attention or anything… Fast forward to 2023, and Skrillex now is now consistently dropping it in sets. The story goes a DJ/mash-up/edit maker from Australia by the name of Mushu got ahold of “Trust” and mashed it with the recently released Skrillex tune “Rumble.” From there, Mushu sent it to Benzi, the king of mash-ups and edits, who sent it over to Skrillex. Before I knew any of this, I remember going onto Youtube to watch a little bit of Skrillex‘s Lollapalooza set and saw in the comments a “tracklist,” and halfway through it, I noticed “ID – ID,” which always gets me a little excited as you know you’re about to hear some heat. Lo and behold, the ID was my very own “Trust.” And with the Skrillex hype, we’ve decided to officially release it alongside a VIP mix as well.” – QUIX
Hailing all the way from New Zealand, QUIX initially traveled to North America in 2017 for 10 shows and finished up doing an astonishing 42 stops. He has been tearing up the trap scene ever since, continuously shaking the new ground with his unique sound design. Coming off three headline tours in 2018, including Coachella and support on Steve Aoki‘s Kolony tour, QUIX had a break-out year with his “Illusions EP” on Dim Mak. It has racked up millions of plays and creatively merged genres with powerful vocals while staying true to QUIX‘s signature sound. He has also been honored by Spotify to feature on the cover of their two biggest international dance playlists, “Mint” and “Dance Rising,” and officially remixed the likes of Steve Aoki, GASHI, RL Grime, and more.
