When Quentin Harris and Jason Walker get together in the studio, there are pretty good odds that some magic is being made. From ‘Can’t Stop‘ to ‘Home’ to ‘Circles‘ all on Strictly Rhythm, Quentin and Jason have the track record of producing memorable music.
Later this month, their latest EP will be released under Quentin’s home base label, Def Mix with a remix from head honcho David Morales. One of the (many) things about Quentin that we have long admired is his ability to create music that works well beyond the dance floor. Remixing artists as wide ranging as Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Femi Kuti, Blaze, Tortured Soul, Dennis Ferrer, Bah Samba, Black Coffee, Barbara Tucker and many more, Quentin has a wealth of talent that is beyond measure. He has had a bit of a studio hiatus (his albums ‘Sac•ri•fice‘ and ‘No Politics‘ have not had a hiatus from our playlists), and ‘Stronger‘ is a welcome return. Jason Walker can be as genre bending as Quentin, lending his unique and distinct voice both as a pop and dance artist, even reaching #1 on the Billboard Dance chart for his work with Junior Vasquez.
On ‘Stronger‘ Quentin and Jason create a musical journey that “speaks of empowerment after moving from a toxic relationship” Jason’s incredible voice works in perfect harmony with Quentin’s trademarked soulful piano groove. Then the heavyweight David Morales beefs things up with his peak time ‘Muscle Mix‘ In all we get four songs, the original and David’s mix both in vocal and instrumental form.
“There is a great quote that says ‘music is what feelings and emotions sound like’. And on this song Jason Walker and I have created is a very personal and a testament to another quote that says ‘what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.’ We had no idea of what we were going to make that day in my studio, but boy did he and I have something to say!” – Quentin Harris
