Valentino Khan’s Highly Anticipated “House Party” EP Drives a Classic Sound into the Future

After months of teasing fans with the nostalgia-meets-modern, dancefloor-friendly concept of his “House Party” EP,¬†Valentino Khan¬†has finally dropped the full version for our listening pleasure. The six-track collection features three new tracks alongside previously released singles including the early summer anthem “Pony,” vibey house collaboration ‘”JustYourSoul” with¬†Diplo, and the in-your-face, sassy and sultry “Better” with¬†Wuki.¬†Valentino¬†also released “Flip the Switch” with¬†Chris Lorenzo¬†just a day before the full¬†EP’s release, unleashing a hard-hitting, bass-heavy opener for “House Party.” Tech house and classic four-on-the-floor house influences are strong throughout all the tracks, but each has their own unique sound – from the bouncy “What’s Your Name” to the driving beat of “BRB,”¬†Valentino¬†has created tunes that are just as good through your headphones as they are from a club sound system.

“I set out to make an¬†EP¬†with a simple concept: great house music. Even though it’s been the backbone of dance music, I still have always looked to drive the sound forward. I wanted you to be able to listen to the music anywhere – driving in the car, in your bedroom, at the club or played out at a festival. I also wanted to bring in some collaborators that I felt have always been pushing boundaries in¬†Diplo,¬†Wuki & Chris Lorenzo. So here’s my ‘House Party‘ EP. I’m truly proud to release this body of work to the world. Listen to this everywhere and anywhere.”¬†–¬†Valentino Khan

The world was introduced to¬†LA-based DJ¬†and producer¬†Valentino Khan¬†in¬†2014, when he burst onto the scene with his debut¬†EP¬†“In Khan We Trust” on¬†Skrillex’s¬†OWSLA¬†label.¬†Khan’s sound possessed a unique versatility, incorporating elements of trap, bass, hardstyle, house and more into a driving, often heavy sound that found homes on labels such as¬†Mad Decent,¬†Spinnin Records, and¬†Ultra. In¬†2015,¬†Khan’s original track “Deep Down Low” became an international sensation, earning the title of “Most Played Track” of the year and topping¬†Sirius XM’s¬†#1¬†Song of¬†2015¬†on¬†Electric Area. Since then, he has earned a reputation as a remix master with official renditions of¬†RL Grime’s “Pressure,”¬†Alison Wonderland’s “Good Enough,”¬†Calvin Harris’s “One Kiss” and more. His original productions include “Pump,” which has over¬†17M¬†streams on¬†Spotify, “Gold” with¬†Sean Paul, as well as production credits for the likes of¬†2 Chainz,¬†B.O.B.,¬†Dizzee Rascal,¬†Iggy Azalea,¬†T.I.¬†and more. On the touring front,¬†Khan¬†sold out his show at the iconic¬†Hollywood Palladiumthis year, featuring a b2b set with¬†Shaquille O’Neal¬†(DJ Diesel) and a surprise appearance by legend¬†Snoop Dogg.¬†2019¬†has already been an epic year for¬†Valentino Khan, and we can’t wait to see what happens in the second half!
