QUIX goes melodic with a new original “Riot Call”
As more talent is discovered outside the US, QUIX is a name that continually recirculates to the top. The New Zealand producer has quickly risen the ranks and has just begun the first leg of his first North American tour. Its not surprising that he is following up his success with a big release on Aoki‘s imprint Dim Mak Records. “Riot Call” is a step away from his usual dark experimental percussive style and is a tune aimed at a broader audience.
As he switches roles to a more generically pleasing style, I’d have to applaud QUIX on the production of this tune but I can tell that the track might have seemed a little forced. Without Nevve‘s beautiful vocal work, this track would have been sidelined as just another odd future bass production. However knowing Dim Mak, I could see how the events unfolded and as such I see this track as more of a strategic move than a creative one!
Check out the tune and let us know what you think. Be sure to catch him on tour while you can!
