From Zhu to Marshmello, the rise of producer anonymity has recently allowed some artists to successfully synergize a visual esthetic with a sound to completely captivate audiences to the point of obsession. The next to add their name to this stacked list of producers is Slushii, a promising future bass producer hailing from “LA to Tokyo”. Slushii has only 6 songs up on SoundCloud at this point, but make no mistake – “Julian S” is not completely new to the game. Slushii now enjoys strong support from JAUZ, Brillz and Marshmello (each core members of Moe Shalizi’s powerhouse crew at Red Light Management), however much of his earlier content has been wiped from SoundCloud to make way for his signature makeover. Coming of out the gates, Slushii turned heads with his playful future bass remix of Kaskade’s “Disarm You” which dropped 9 days ago. Refusing to let the hype cool down for even a split second, Slushii then followed it up with his remix of “In My Head” by Galantis which combined a grimy drop bordering on dubstep with a vocoder effect that made his newfound audience beg for more.
From there, Slushii continued to keep fans guessing with his remix of “Deeper Love” by Botnek & I See MONSTAS and more recently his remix of Zedd’s “I Want You To Know”. However, Slushii is more that just a remix factory; his original track “All I Even Wanted” lays down R&B-esque vocals with a slower future bass bop, meanwhile his ultra vibey Valentine’s Day collaboration with Marshmello made even more waves in the blogosphere and Twitter.
Not too much is known about Slushii, and don’t expect a grand reveal any time soon; Slushii’s bio (translated from Japanese of course) reads “when the problem is solved … not everyone is ready for a solution”. Get ready to #slushitup, since Slushii’s unique blend of melodic undertones, future bass hits and finally heavier dubstep elements has seemingly earned him a spot in Marshmello’s JoyTime Collective and the hearts of future bass fans all over.
