Here’s That Skrillex-Lizzie McGuire Sample You Ordered

Did you know that a track from Skrillex's "Quest For Fire" album samples music by Hilary Duff?

For 90s kids, this is what dreams are made of.

Who could forget 2003's The Lizzie McGuire Movie, when Hilary Duff's Lizzie conquers her fear of singing live by belting her bubblegum pop anthem "What Dreams Are Made Of" in Italy? Apparently not Skrillex, who was ironically tearing up stages with his post-hardcore band, From First to Last, at the time.

Skrillex, of course, ultimately went solo and now operates as one of the world's most prolific music producers. And after the release of Quest For Fire, his long-awaited comeback album, we were all reminded that his creative genius extends far beyond the confines of the final recordings we hear on streaming platforms.

Case in point is "Hazel Theme," a spacey QFF cut that samples Duff's turn-of-the-century hit, "What Dreams Are Made Of." That's according to a vigilant Baauer, who sniffed out Skrillex's sampling of the song's ad-libs and took to TikTok to tell the tale.

Quest For Fire was the first of two new albums Skrillex released within a span of 24 hours last week. The second, Don't Get Too Close, hit streaming platforms during his larger-than-life performance at Madison Square Garden.

Check out "Hazel Theme" and—while you're at it—the nostalgic scene from The Lizzie McGuire Movie below. You've just got to love cringey old Disney movies.
