Dubstep, Glitch | Adele – Skyfall (Quincy Kwalae Remix)

Posted by on October 18, 2012

When Adele releases a new song, the world listens.  Regardless of you’re preference for music, you, at the very least, have to acknowledge and appreciate her voice.  Producer Quincy Kwalae, who recently released an awesome qollab EP with J.T. Roach, “Piñata After Party”, is back with an original mix to Adele’s latest single, “Skyfall”.  Quincy shared with me how this track came about;

“When I heard Adele’s “Skyfall” last week I knew I had to remix it. I’ve always liked Adele, but there is something mysterious about that particular track…maybe it’s the warm, vintage sound that seems to belong to a past decade yet remain relevant. I don’t know. But I do know that my mom got me an N64 for my (24th) birthday back in August, so Goldeneye already had me in the Bond mood. I actually snuck a Klobb gunshot sample from that game into my remix.” – Q

Described as “dubby, glitch-hoppy $ clippity cloppity” by the man himself, take this for what it is and enjoy the latest from the Midwest’s own, Quincy Kwalae.

Albums, Electro, Pop, RnB | Quincy Kwalae & J.T. Roach – Qollab [Free EP]

Posted by on October 1, 2012

Often times artists will blend genres and fail miserably.  The spike in the popularity of EDM has left hip-hop, pop, and r&b artists with the daunting question of “how to incorporate these new sounds into their music”.  Midwest natives, Quincy Kwalae (producer) & J.T. Roach (vocals) crossed paths after graduating college and instantly felt chemistry in their music.  While J.T’s background runs deep as an acoustic artist with roots in R&B & Soul, Quincy’s production is native to both hip-hop and EDM instruments.  Their debut Qollab EP, Piñata After Party encompasses an infusion the duo’s sounds, creating a compelling new genre of their own.

“The whole project sounds like a wild blend of Trey Songz, Skrillex, The Weeknd & Xaphoon Jones…yet, sounds like none of them at all. Maybe we made a new genre….R&BEDM?” – Q

Although this is just the beginning for these two aspiring artists, they have both been at it for quite some time, which is evident in their music.  Although it’s only four new tracks, you’ll hear something new in each one.  Slap on some pine tar and take a swing at this musical Piñata, you won’t be disappointed with what you find inside.
