New Zealand artists have been on a hot streak of late. Think Lorde, and Broods. Plus The Naked and the Famous, Broods, Gin Wigmore, Ladyhawke and Kimbra. There’s no shortage of talent bubbling away in the Land of the Long White Cloud, and not all of fits the pop-and-rock mold. Enter, Quix. The newcomer has spent the past two years shaping tracks for Heaps Cool, a showcase of his signature wonky trap.
Quix' Dim Mak debut EP is a “great reflection of my progress as a producer; getting inspiration and support from other artists,” he tells Billboard.
Each track on Heaps Cool has a story,” recounts Quix, “whether it would be the crazy amount of changes that happened to ‘Alpaca’ that made it the track it is today, or the short amount of time I had before deadline to finish 'Four Letter Lie’ from scratch within a week." Billboard exclusively premieres the six-pack EP today (May 26).
