Did you know that a track from Skrillex’s “Quest For Fire” album samples Hilary Duff’s music?
For the kids of the 90s, IT that’s what dreams do.
Who can forget the 2003’s The Lizzie McGuire Movie, when Hilary Duff’s Lizzie overcomes her fear of singing live by belting out her bubblegum pop anthem “What Dreams Are Made Of” in Italy? Apparently not Skrillexwho was hilariously tearing down the stages of his post-hardcore band, From First to Last, at the time.
Skrillex, of course, is finally on his own and now acts as one of the prolific music producers in the world. And after the release of Search For Firehis long-awaited comeback album, we were all reminded that his creative genius is far beyond the limits of the last recordings we heard on streaming platforms.
Case in point is the “Hazel Theme,” a spacey one QFF cut that samples Duff’s turn-of-the-century hit, “What Dreams Are Made Of.” According to a vigilante Bauerwho sniffed Skrillex’s sampling of the song’s ad-libs and took to TikTok to tell the story.
