SKYLER shares, “Although I finished this track before my rebrand and it’s a future-bass sound that’s different from what you’ll be hearing come from my project this year, I am still extremely proud to release “Fix Me” because of the raw, complex emotion behind it. The title of the song is a play on words, begging the world to ‘fix you,’ but the lyrics reflect the pain one feels when they are at the crossroads of knowing only you can fix yourself.”
Josh Rubin adds, “The hardest part about going through struggles is finding the courage to ask for help. A lot of times we’re our worst enemy and our biggest critic. It’s important to reach out and talk to friends and loved ones. A lot of times, we don’t realize it, but we’re all more similar and connected than we realize. Never be afraid to ask for help. You’re never alone.”
SKYLER is making waves through the scene with her genre-bending stylings and eclectic trap sounds, garnering the likes of electronic heavyweights like Illenium, who played her recent release “Hit My Line” in his Phoenix Radio show, and Flux Pavillion, for whom she made an official remix of “Sink Your Teeth In (feat. Drowsy).” She continues to hit milestones in her meteoric rise, including her festival debut at Tomorrowland last year and her first gaming sync in Rocket League with “Hit My Line”. She’s gearing up to release more heavy-hitting bass records that will be included in her upcoming EP, due this summer on Monstercat.
Singer-songwriter and musician Josh Rubin debuted on Monstercat alongside bass producer Fransis Derelle with the 2021 single “Same Mistake,” which has accumulated more than 2 Million streams on Spotify alone. He’s made appearances at major festivals like Coachella and EDC Las Vegas and has had renowned electronic producers Alison Wonderland, Gryffin, and more play his tunes out in their sets. Currently studying music production at ICON Collective, fans can look forward to music to come that fully captures his vision with his own production skills.
Based out of Los Angeles, California, SKYLER has immersed herself in multiple facets of the music industry for the past decade. With years of experience as a headlining open-format DJ, she decided to take her passion to the next level by releasing her own fine-tuned production arsenal. Inspired by an array of different genres, SKYLER’s diverse sound transcends beyond the typical norms of bass-driven music. She has created her own wave which she feels can be best described as “Future Trap.”
Her unique blend of euphoric and dreamy bass with in-your-face trap infused sounds caught the attention of many. She released her debut EP ‘Iridescent’ on Circus Records in 2021 and quickly followed up with a debut single on Monstercat. She entered the year 2022 in full force by releasing an official remix of “Sink Your Teeth In” by Flux Pavilion and Drowsy. In addition, she announced her first breakout festival appearance at Tomorrowland in Belgium later in the year.
Since her decision to pursue music full-time and to focus on production, she’s garnered an immense amount of support from bass artists such as Flux Pavilion, Krewella, Nitti Gritti and more. SKYLER works hard at continuously evolving her sound. She looks forward to sharing more music and taking you all on her creative journey!
