Slumberjack, QUIX and josh pan team up for a high-octane collaboration, Vision
A departing gift from three of 2017's trap heavyweights.
While many argue that the trap sub-genre is on its last legs, there are still a couple of exciting names keeping things relatively alive – particularly in Australia and New Zealand. Perth's Slumberjack and New Zealand's QUIX are two of these, with both Slumberjack and QUIX seemingly spending more time in North America than their home cities this year as a result of extensive touring and writing sessions overseas. While he might not be quite as big in Australia, LA's josh pan is another name to add to the list, with his often experimental and warped writing style proving a highlight, particularly in the US. Vision is where all three of these parties meet, departing 2017 in style with an energetic, warped production which no doubt goes down as a highlight for the sub-genre this year.
It's based on a dark vocal sample, which hauntingly squirms around the single's echoing bass kicks and quick-firing synth melody. It's a noticeably dark and malicious affair – something you would expect from RL Grime's Halloween mixes – but it goes pretty damn hard, especially in the last minute where those crunching bass kicks assemble a jersey-like pattern to up that energy level that little bit more.
