Infusing his signature breed of wonky trap across productions that range from glossy, to experimental, to undeniably heavy, QUIX conjures a spellbinding masterpiece on his sophomore Dim Mak EP "Illusions."The New Zealand native's matured production capabilities are on full display throughout the suspenseful opener "Get Down." QUIX's use of organic-meets-electronic elements continues on "Giving Up," a dreamy, future bass meets hard-hitting trap heater, and "Earthquake," a colossal trap-dubstep hybrid that partners perfectly with Bok Neros dominant flow. The next two tracks further showcase QUIX's wide range of skills, shifting gears for the Vincent collaboration "Hero" and the R&B-influenced crossover "Ride or Die" with vocalist Reigan. The EP finishes with Aviella's wavy vocals over QUIX's archetypal-style production on "All I Have."
