Devil Music featuring Quix and Elliot

Los Angeles' Quix has just come out with a new mixtape and has been gracious enough to give us at Penned Madness the head's up. The mix, entitled Devil Music, is the efforts of Quix himself and his producing cohort Elliot. These two have teamed up to bring something that all the kids will enjoy.

No shit, this is one of the best mixes I have heard in a good minute. Now some of the songs aren't the most topical, but I subscribe to the school of thought that a good mix doesn't need to be briming with every recent banger from the past 2 weeks to actually be good. A good mix needs to-and I know it sounds cliche but-tell a story... not just be filled with killer OONTZ OONTZ. Quix and Elliot both get gold stars for just that, for weaving such a stunning story and keeping my toes tapping for a solid 37 minutes.

Devil Music is skillfully blended and constructed in a way to properly appeal to damn near everyone; hip-hop heads, indie fucks, remix kids and even those oblivious to the awesome that is modern party music will get behind this mix.

Only people that hate fun and dancing will ignore this mix and fuck those people anyway right?

Remember that little town in Footloose, this would be the bane of their existence.
