Valentino Khan delivers a severe dose of a booty-shaking bass house on his newest track “Pony,” the first tease from his upcoming EP – out soon on Mad Decent. With plenty of bounce and heavy-hitting basslines, the track’s filthy drop and catchy vocals are decidedly g-house influenced, while sound effects such as the clip-clopping of a horse’s hooves in the background give it a cheeky edge. Heading into the summer festival season, “Pony” is guaranteed to light up festival dancefloors around the globe. It follows Valentino Khan‘s “Novocaine” with Kayzo, which was released in January, as well as his sold-out show at the Hollywood Palladium featuring a b2b set with Shaquille O’Neal (also known as DJ Diesel) and a surprise appearance by the legend Snoop Dogg. Stay tuned for more news about Khan‘s upcoming EP and exciting collaborations coming soon!
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, TI. and more. Khan has set the stage for his best year yet, and with the release of “Pony” he’s well on his way to achieving it.
