Treyis is back, and he brought some melodic dubstep with him. Also known as Spencer Stumpf, the Seattle-native’s last releases came at the end of last year, prior to his performance at Resolution 2015. The tracks, Hourglass (a collab with Them Lost Boys) and Home are a couple of Treyis’ tracks that take us back to his debut EP. After a few months of dedicating more time to personal and work life, as well as finding all of the spare time he can to create new tunes, Treyis returns with a remix that will have fans re-playing The Sixth Floor EP in no time.
The remix, of Astronaut’s vocally-addicting progressive house tune Champions, is a festival-ready masterclass in melodic dubstep. Falling somewhere in a Bass Bermuda Triangle with vertices of Adventure Club, Seven Lions, and Zomboy, Treyis’ takes on Champions, in which he utilizes the vocals of Harry Brooks Jr. perfectly, and has us wanting more. The typically polished sound we’re used to from Treyis makes itself prevalent once again, and it’s only getting better. The remix is available as a free download, and is hopefully a sign of similar things to come in the future from the Northwest favorite.
I fell in love with the lyrics and the flow of the melody… this track allowed me to show more of my musical side. – Treyis
While devoting more time to family and personal life, Treyis is continuing to make sure we hear his name, and his tunes. He’s been a mainstay at Seattle’s Foundation Nightclub in recent months, performing both solo and alongside fellow Washington State University alum R0ME. Treyis has been featured at recent shows with headliners including Downlink, ℧Z, Dirtyphonics, and more this year, with plenty of shows on the way. His next confirmed show is opening for Apashe (with R0ME) on May 27th at Foundation.
[R0ME & I] are completely comfortable playing together. We never practice either, so every time it feels fresh, new, and completely improvised. I like doing tag sets for that reason, but I prefer to do solo ones so that there’s no confusion in branding. We are solo artists, both pursuing a solo career. – Treyis
Treyis is still writing music, taking his time, with talks of releasing singles, remixes, and even an EP in the coming months. Until then, let us know what you think of Treyis’ version of Champions, and if you’ll be catching him at Foundation next month! Comment below, on Facebook, or reply on Twitter!
