Now that we know who is behind the mask, does the duo lose their appeal? Not one bit. On our latest visit over to Dim Mak we are checking out “I Miss You”, the latest single from Pushing Daizies. Originally seeded around two years ago, Pushing Daizies is a brand new project of two prominent US producers who embrace the concept of life and put it into their work. Initially beginning as a series of collaborations between the two artists, a unique link was uncovered and they knew that they couldn’t let his energy go to waste. The duo’s moniker refers to the concept of “pushing daisies” or the flowers that are grown over a burial plot after someone dies. While death may occur and is inevitable, life can be reborn from its ashes. However, after over a year of covering our favorite flowers we finally know who is behind the project. Riot Ten and Stoutty, time to take center stage.
“‘I Miss You‘ is that one song for someone we always miss. We hope this song brings back great memories of whoever that is, as it did for us during the creation of it.” – Pushing Daizies
“I wrote this song when I was reflecting on the memories of a past relationship. It dawned on me that everything that I used to get really annoyed with ended up being the things that I was actually missing. Missing someone, whether it be a lost friendship or a failed relationship, is hard. The trips, the fights, the hanging out, the going out, it leaves a certain void that isn’t just replaceable overnight. To me, that’s what I wrote this song about, the absence of the presence of the person.” – Lucii
“Pushing Daizies is a project that really began during the pandemic. With no shows happening, my livelihood all but taken away, stuck in quarantine with no end in sight, life became a little depressing. However, with the new found time, I began talking to my good friend Stoutty about exploring new genres together. Initially, we weren’t even thinking about making an entire project out of it. We just wanted to make powerful and emotional music that would be relatable during such crazy times. Something completely opposite of the music that we currently make, and we wasted little time before going full steam ahead. We worked so much on the sound that in just a few months we ended up with 2 albums worth of music, literally. At that point, we knew this had the potential to be something special. And thus, Pushing Daizies was born. This project means so much to us because it allows us to take listeners on a completely different journey. And it allows us to express our art and push boundaries further than we ever thought possible. We are pushing daizies.” – Riot Ten
After taking a quick break (completely well-deserved after how many singles they dropped since their debut), the last thing we expected would be for Pushing Daizies to come back and reveal their identities. We were pretty surprised when we found out it was Riot Ten and Stoutty, who created the project during quarantine to make music that is completely out of the norm from their catalogs as individual artists. However, even though their identities are public knowledge, it doesn’t take away from the fact that they continue to make meaningful music as our favorite flowers. The latest addition to the catalog, “I Miss You” is built around that familiar feeling of missing someone through the vehicle that is future bass. While their signature future bass style runs the show, the duo bring on singer/songwriter Lucii to provide vocals that will pull on the heartstrings of any listener that pushes play. We may know who Pushing Daizies actually are, but the feelings they provoke stay the same.
