QUIX Joins Forces with Grammy-nominated SOFI for Spoken-Word Dark House Single "DROP 'EM." Out Now on Dim Mak Records.
QUIX teamed up with renowned singer/songwriter, actor, choreographer, and all-around entertainer SOFI for their new release "DROP 'EM," a dark spoken-word house track that packs a punch. SOFI's performance - most recognizable from her work with deadmau5 on his smash "4x4=12" album ("Sofi Needs a Ladder" and "One Trick Pony") is a nostalgic delight for longtime fans of electronic dance music and new listeners alike delivering style and sass with her rap-style vocals. QUIX's production prowess is evident in his seamless blend of hard-hitting basslines and danceable melodies, making "DROP 'EM" into a promising future festival anthem that's bound to be blowing up around the globe this season. Both artists also have plenty to weigh in on the track's inspiration.
"To be making a song with SOFI is a lifelong dream coming true. Before I even could produce music, I listened to her on '4x4=12' and especially resonated with her song "One Trick Pony." The aggressive powerful rap style vocal was so inspiring and to be here making a song with her now is a big full circle moment. Years ago, I originally had this beat made as a fun remix for a friend, but after some time, I felt that I really had to show the world this song as an original record and so I sought out looking for a top-line. House music isn't necessarily my go-to genre to produce, but I feel as though this is the best representation of my take on house, and I'm so happy to have worked with SOFI and not only credit to her performance on the record, but an amazing person to have collaborated with." - QUIX
"'DROP 'EM' is kinda my love letter to electronic music and its scene. The sense of defiance and, at the same time, full submission. Lyrically I like to play with double meanings, blurring the lines between being literal and metaphorical and leaving things up for interpretation. As soon as I heard QUIX's first draft, I felt like I wanted to create something that would be fun for me to perform live and that I would also feel hyped to bop to if I heard it being played out. There's a call-and-response element to it that feels unanimous. Like when you and your friend finish each other's sentences." - SOFI
