The Dead Presidents Tour: Valentino Khan @ The Loft 8/21/15
by Bradley Loiederman


Valentino Khan, a producer and DJ hailing from Los Angeles, has been taking over the scene the past couple years with hit remixes and his chart-topping EP off of OWSLA. After more than a year of waiting, he is finally returning to Minneapolis on August 21st at The Loft!



Starting out just four years ago, Valentino Khan has made a huge name for himself in the dance music scene. After doing numerous remixes for artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Benny Benassi, MIA, and Bro Safari, Valentino Khan had the opportunity to co-produce with Diplo in 2013, coming together to create the smash hit, “Bubble Butt”. After his success with that track, Valentino Khan went on tour in 2013, touring around the country in support for Skrillex, Zedd, and The Bloody Beetroots. He got signed to OWSLA in 2014 after his tour with Skrillex and soon after released his debut EP, “In Khan We Trust”. Making sure that his fans always have something new to acquire, he recently released a track with Flosstradamus and an original track of his own, “Deep Down Low.”



It’s almost impossible to describe all of Valentino Khan’s music in a few words because his tracks are so completely different. One day, he’ll create a heavy festival trap track that will make the crowd grind and twurk until the whole club is steamy, and the next day, he’ll create a hardstyle track that transports you into a warehouse filled with trip pants and hard dance. You see this very well when looking at his EP: he goes from “Rock It”, which is a bouncy electrohouse track that’s perfect for festivals, to “Bloodsucker”, a hardstyle track that’s perfect for a 4am surprise Saturday night set. His ability to include all genres of electronic music, and his overall versatility in production and set-creating, makes it no surprise that his popularity continues to shoot up exponentially!



Not only is Valentino Khan a highly talented electronic producer, but he is also a very big name in hip hop producing and ghost producing. Throughout his career, he has produced for numerous multi-platinum and Grammy-award winning artists, such as B.o.B, T.I., Iggy Azalea, Bruno Mars, Tyga, and 2 Chainz. Having the experience of producing non-dance tracks definitely influences Valentino Khan’s versatility, giving his tracks and sets that extra sense of uniqueness.



Valentino Khan’s speedy climb to the top in the past few years has been well deserved. His talent and versatility in every genre of electronic music has created tracks and mixes that no one in the industry could’ve predicted. All this mixing together with his energy and personality that shines through his music makes him an artist not to miss! So make sure to get your bodies ready for a night of crowd-moving dance music across the board with Valentino Khan at The Loft on August 21st!
