Quentyn – Home Tonight
For his second release as a solo artist, Quentyn, formerly of Volt & State, has unveiled an uplifting house ballad called “Home Tonight.”
The single, out now on Enroute Records, contains the artist’s signature piano chords and showcases his progressive house background. With his new solo project, however, the producer aims to distance himself from traditional dance music and do more crossover work. “Home Tonight,” for example, contains acoustic elements and strays from the common break/drop/break/drop structure often found in dance music.
“I’m more likely to say I have a signature way in my way of making music. I’m always starting from a melody (made with a simple piano or guitar sound), instead of sound-shaping. I think this also creates some kind of handwriting into my productions. For now I’m exploring the crossover between [progressive] house and band/indie music. It’s more down-tempo, more 80s inspired synths and with less electronic elements.”
