Quentin Harris' DEBUT album

House music is not typically known for carrying a message but the title of Quentin’s album, ‘No Politics’, reflects a desire to rid music of niches, divides and genre boundaries: “I have this analogy – and this belief – that nothing is new. Everything’s been done before – we’re not re-inventing the wheel. I just like all music and what I make just so happens to sound like what it sounds like.” But despite his desire for music to be politics-free Quentin cites his own album as an example of current concerns. “There were disagreements between the American record label and Japan,” he explains. “It’s complicated but it became very political; that’s when I decided the album should be called, ‘No Politics’.” When asked what the album represented for him he enthusiastically declared “No Politics is a small window into my crazy mind. And my mind is only going to get crazier,” he warns. When talking about Quentin it is impossible to overlook his love of the legendary New York club Shelter; it has become a second home to him. It is here that he met the notorious producer Timmy Regisford; an artist and DJ that would provide him with great inspiration. In recent years he’s been experimenting with parties of his own there. “Recently I started a party called ‘Kiss My Black Ass…’ You laugh – that’s what the name was intended to do! I think people take themselves too seriously in music. I just wanted to create a night where people could come as they are; you hear it all the time, ‘Come as you are!’ But no, people were coming to my party really as they were; some girl had a lamp-shade on her head, I was like, ‘Oh, fine.” Hard-working and visionary, Quentin is respected by peers and fans alike. Three new singles are set to be released in the coming year from this album – ‘My Joy’, ‘Joy’ and ‘Can’t Stop’; and though you can never quite tell what Quentin will come up with next, you can always tell, without a doubt, that it’s going to be mind-blowing.
