The remix is set to drop on July 14th, and fans of Sickick’s signature style of genre- blending music can expect an electrifying rendition that will undoubtedly captivate audiences worldwide.
The DJ explained why he’s so excited to be working with these musicians, “I’ve always been a fan of Avril and Travis, and when I saw that Illenium did a collab with her I had to jump at the opportunity to put my own spin on the record.” Sickick first gained recognition through his groundbreaking “Sickick Music” series, where he unleashed a new track every Sunday for 25 consecutive weeks. These releases showcased his exceptional talent for seamlessly blending various music genres, incorporating elements of hip- hop and electronic music. With each song, Sickick’s distinctive remixes left an indelible mark on listeners, paving the way for his meteoric rise in the music industry.
When asked about the new track specifically Sickick gave some insight into what fans should expect to hear, “I rebuilt the entire track from scratch in terms of production; new progressions, new sounds. I wanted to make sure I had control over all the elements, and it was really important to me to envision a sound that would sound great on large speakers in the large crowds that Illenium brings out to all of his events. Not to mention… a brand new verse by yours truly!”
Among his notable accomplishments, Sickick’s track “Frozen” stands tall as his most played song on Spotify, boasting over 136 million plays to date. Featuring an incredible collaboration with music icon Madonna and the talented Fireboy DML, “Frozen” not only took the streaming platforms by storm but also became a massive hit on TikTok, garnering an impressive 1.3 million features.
While the DJ loves remixing, he says fans should look out for originals coming soon, “I believe I’ve shown off my skills in the remix realm, and I will continue to do them, but now I’m fully focused on showing the world what i can do in the original area of my career and I’m so excited. Everything I’ve learned to this point I’m using to create the pieces of work I’m making now and I absolutely love what is being done in the studio. Can’t wait to show the world!” Additionally, Sickick’s “Mind Games,” his second most played song on Spotify, has garnered over 66 million views. This track, showcasing Sickick’s solo artistry, is a testament to his ability to captivate audiences with his distinct sound and unique musical vision.
The Canadian sensation has proven his versatility time and again through collaborations with esteemed artists from diverse musical backgrounds.

Instagram reels and 15k TikToks, while simultaneously amassing over four million streams within a mere four days of its release. Sickick says his love for music has only grown over time, “I’ve been making music since I was for 4 and got my first keyboard so I don’t even remember a life where melodies weren’t flooding my head constantly. But I can say now through really taking this art seriously and opening myself up to the world of music as a maturing artist, I have a new level of compassion that I’ve developed.”
With each new project, Sickick continues to push boundaries, redefine genres, and deliver a musical experience that resonates deeply with his ever-growing fanbase.
