Pulling inspiration from his formative years listening to French electro, Valentino Khan showcases an incredible level of production, influenced by the blog house era of dance music.
“Blackmail” comes a handful of months after Valentino’s massive remix of DJ Snake’s “Trust Nobody” and“Obsession,” with fellow house music heavyweights, Ship Wrek. Featuring aggressive baselines, both garnered serious praise both in the press, and from eager fans around the world.
“My introduction to dance music over a decade ago came from passing by my brother’s room and hearing the distorted electronic sounds that were coming overseas from Europe. This music was fresh to my American ears and created a new culture that motivated me to push boundaries as a producer.
This next series of releases blends my own sounds with the inspirations I’ve drawn from this era of dance music. In doing that, I’m looking to continue to evolve as an artist by bringing a fresh perspective to the table sonically. I truly am looking forward to sharing these upcoming records with everyone and showing why I’m so passionate about dance music.“ –Valentino Khan
In tandem with his new release, Valentino Khan hosted a special Quarantino Khan livestream on Tuesday, September 8 to kick off the new project. Announcing there will be singles dropping every two weeks until EP release. Keep an eye out for more music on the way.
