Valentino Khan is back on Mad Decent with “Blackmail,” the lead single from his upcoming EP. 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. Continually innovating his signature sound, the producer breaks new ground as we are presented a taste of what’s to come with his upcoming “French Fried” project.
“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
