From hip-hop to EDM, Valentino Khan’s production style is boundless. A powerhouse figure in modern music, the LA-based composer returns with his 4-track EP French Fried. The blog-house inspired extended play is available on all streaming platforms via Mad Decent.
A true innovator, Valentino Khan is consistently celebrated for challenging his sound. Since his explosive debut in 2014, Valentino Khan has quickly become a household name on dancefloors across the globe. With production credits for Diplo, French Montana, and Lil Pump, just to name a few, Valentino Khan can’t be pigeonholed into any one single genre. Following two official remixes for DJ Snake and singles “Blackmail,” “Deathproof,” and “Division,” Valentino dives into the depths of his influences on his forthcoming French Fried EP. The aptly-titled project is a nod to the early years of French electronica and the birth of blog-house. Originally introduced to the genre by his brother over a decade ago, the EP is a deeply personal opus rooted in unwavering inspiration. The genre-bending project expands on the prototype for dance music with explosive drops and cutting-edge sound design. French Fried arrives at the intersection of original European dance music and modern bass.
“This body of work was heavily inspired by my first exposure to dance music. French artists played a huge role in creating sounds that drew me into the genre. When the first wave of this hit America, it impacted me by pushing boundaries in a unique way. I hope to continue that innovative spirit not only with this music, but with all my future releases as well. Enjoy.” – Valentino Khan
