"Not going to lie this collab remix is actually pretty dope, definitely a good vibe" - Ghastly
After living in New York for most of his life, Spirix moved to Hong Kong, where he has been residing for two years.
"I started producing because I wanted to do something that i've been aspiring to do as a hobby for ages but never had the time to do so. Moving to Hong Kong allowed me to find myself, as I was sort of a nerd in New York, but moving to Hong Kong really opened me up," Spirix told us.
The young producer has plans to move to California to attend Chapman University. Look out Los Angeles! We have a feeling this isn't the last time we'll hear from Spirix.
Check out the viral remix for yourself below, and try and tell us this doesn't hit you right in the feels.
