Quentin Hiatus returns to Translation Recordings with a vengeance, delivering four vibrant,
dancefloor-igniting tracks on the 'Passive Boycott' EP.
Up first is title-track 'Passive Boycott,' whose serene pads provide the perfect calm before
a surging bass drop that rides atop shuffling glitch percussion, crushing everything in its
path. Next, Quentin rolls out the drums on 'Obsessive Nature,' a slice of rugged, tribal
futurism with a punishing 808 bass stomp of uncharted magnitude. The pace lets up to a
modest 160 BPM on 'Under It All,' where a warm Rhodes piano keys and percolating low end
frequencies set things up for the final track -'Keep It Gangster,' an infectious halfstepper with
West Coast hip hop flavor and ample jolts of electrifying mid-range bass.
From peak-hour dancefloor madness to a head-nodding 85 BPM, the tracks on the 'Passive
Boycott' EP showcase Quentin Hiatus' dynamic musical range and knack for blending the
sounds of old and the new into a hard-edged, future funk that is uniquely his own. With
vibes like this, it's no surprise his music has garnered the support of forward-thinking
producers like Om Unit, Loxy, and Resound.
