Canadian EDM duo DVBBS and singer-songwriter Quinn XCII know exactly what kind of music we all need right now. While 2020 has played out as one of the most stressful years in recent history, sometimes all it takes is one carefree song to help us forget our troubles, even if it’s just for two minutes and 30 seconds. DVBBS and Quinn do just that with their breezy, replay-worthy “West Coast” single.

After appearing on tracks like MAX‘s “Love Me Less” and Louis The Child‘s “Little Things”, there’s no doubt that Detroit musician Quinn XCII can stitch together a great pop collaboration like no other. His vocals mesh well with every genre that he tackles and “West Coast” is no exception. He perfectly complements DVBBS’s dance-pop production, which the EDM duo gushed about while talking about the song, telling fans that if you “sprinkle some DVBBS sauce on a Quinn XCII vocal, this is what you get. Whether you’re from the West Coast or East Coast, we’ll be turning up together soon.”
Nothing soothes the soul better than an easygoing song during difficult times, which was the original intention behind the Golden Coast homage. “‘West Coast’ is about finding that easiness in life that we all need from time to time,” said Quinn XCII. “The song came about in the studio one day after playing this raw piano melody that inspired this carefree feeling. DVBBS did an amazing job giving the song a fresh approach to a dance record that I’m excited to be a part of.” Needless to say, they accomplished their goal and provided a lively track that’s an absolute delight to listen to.
Quinn XCII’s latest album, A Letter To My Younger Self, and DVBBS’s nine-track LP, Nothing To See Here, are available on all major streaming services. You can listen to “West Coast” below.
