Trap music is alive and well in the hands of New Zealand-based up-and-comer QUIX. He capped 2016 off with an inventive update to Skrillex and Nero’s “Promises,” a widely-supported collaboration with Boombox Cartel, and managed to drop off a boisterous original piece, “The Cut,” as his meteoric year came to a close. Now QUIX, joined by fellow New Zealand-native Ian Munro, is circling back to another Skrillex original for his first release of 2017, offering up a heavy-handed trap take on one last year’s top tunes, “Purple Lamborghini.”
Renaming their rework with something that’s a little more aligned with their own taste, QUIX and Ian Munro’s “Purple Ford Falcon” is pure unabashed, ultra-hype trap music from front to back. Unloading a full clip of percussive, wonky 808s, the pair of emerging producers flip Skrillex and Rick Ross’ collaboration into their own bombastic trap weapon, polished with off-kilter clicks and aced sample arrangements cropped from the original.
Among the impressive pool of talent emanating from Australia and New Zealand, QUIX continues to stand out as an increasingly formidable force in the bass music spectrum. Tune in and turn this one up.
