Following a brief hiatus, Portland native Quinn Brown AKA Quiet Bison returns to the forefront of emerging electronic talent. “High Like This” featuring rapper Reo Cragun is the lead single to Quiet Bison’s forthcoming debut album. “High Like This” is slated for release Friday, October 2 via Ultra Music.
Quiet Bison’s music dissolves the barrier between genre and sound. After his breakthrough debut EP Trials and Tribulations sent a shotgun blast into the dance music atmosphere, Quiet Bison captured the attention of the entire industry. Furthering his ascent into the fantastic world of avant-garde production Quiet Bison released his sophomore EP Sequence in 2019. The 4-track EP captured the attention of NEST HQ, Skrillex’s former media giant who subsequently hosted Quiet Bison for a NEST HQ MiniMix and interview. Sequence was followed by an official remix for What So Not’s single “We Can Be Friends” featuring Florida songstress Herizen. The tail end of 2019 was a fiery one for Quiet Bison as he scored an inclusion on Flume’s Hi This Is Flume playlist, joined Alison Wonderland on her Radio Wonderland podcast, and later debuted his live set opening for A-trak, Whipped Cream, and Hex Cougar. Wrapping up his busiest year yet, Quiet Bison delivered his third studio EP Nightfall which garnered praise from tastemakers like Billboard Dance, Future Classic Recommends, Dummy Mag, and Dancing Astronaut, just to name a few. In the midst of a global pandemic and a sea of social unrest, Quiet Bison emerges to transport listeners to the mainstage once again with his highly-anticipated debut album. The album’s lead single “High Like This” is steeped in a psychedelic bravado, blurring the lines between hip-hop and experimental EDM. Watch this space.
I could talk about the technical side of making this song, but I really want to take this time to say that working on it with Reo was really inspiring and I owe a lot to him for making this song something special. Thank you to Reo for being you. – Quiet Bison
