Pulling inspiration from his formative years listening to French electro, Valentino Khan channels his younger self for inspiration as we receive his newest single ‘Blackmail.’ Announcing his forthcoming EP set to release on Mad Decent, fans are treated to an appropriate taste of what’s to come. Constantly innovating his signature sound, Valentino Khan pushes boundaries in his newest, combining heavy bass house with melodic overtones. A classic four-on-the-floor sweeping house track, Valentino Khan returns to his roots with nuanced flare in ‘Blackmail.’
“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
