Bio Dennis Quin
Bass driven, groove-catching house music with a twist. That’s the best way to describe Dennis Quin’s sound. Quin’s trademark is the effective combination of raw analogue elements with an irresistible rhythmic drive. In addition to being a highly successful solo producer, Quin is Hardsoul’s co-producer and works with Roog (Hardsoul) on their collaboration projects.
This dedicated artist has worked with some top-notch producers such as Low Steppa and the legendary Todd Terry, and has become a highly-renowned artist in his own right on labels such as DFTD (Defected), SIMMA Black, SNATCH! Records, MadHouse, Brobot and Get Twisted Records.
Selling tracks by the bucket-load, he reached the Top 20 of Beatport’s top-selling House Artists of the Year in 2016, took position #30 in the Traxsource Top 100 House artists and was runner up in the Bass Music Awards 2016 House category.
Dennis Quin is a real house fanatic, focussed on bringing the combination of style and energetic sounds into his productions. He has the ability to enrich today’s vogue with timeless elements from the past.
As a quick background, Quin was bitten by the early house bug in 1993. His rookie days consisted of buying and spinning vinyl. He enjoyed a classical musical upbringing too, playing the piano at age 15, these skills proving essential in his development as a fully-fledged artist today. Despite the fact that he is relatively new to production (Quin only started in the studio in 2011), he is fully focussed on presenting a truly unique sound.
Quin’s trademark sound features a strong drive and rhythmic elements which have a major impact on the dancefloor, whilst retaining an abundance of musicality. When he goes deeper and darker it somehow always retains his trademark strong groove, always a firm ingredient within his unique sound. The ability to produce raw sounds with old-school elements, and placing classic analogue sounds alongside modern digital synth sounds, is unquestionably the secret to his success.
As a DJ Dennis consistently presents a real show behind the decks, both physically and aurally. His sets all contain those key goosebump-inducing moments that make it all worthwhile. Enjoyment and interaction with the crowd is unquestionably his forte. He creatively combines his specially-crafted edits and live additions of looping and using acapellas, seamlessly merged with his own productions and conscientiously selected tunes thus taking the Quin vibe to another level.
