Swiss-based electronic talent Quenum has made his 2021 return to Crosstown Rebels‘ sister label, Rebellion, with his cunning Little Secret EP.

With over 30-years of dance floor experience under his belt, the Cadenza co-founder has cemented his reputation on stages worldwide, formulating projects such as his Azimute and Access 58 monikers while also collaborating with the likes of The Advent, UMEK, and Luciano. With over 30 EPs on some of the biggest labels in house and techno, the prolific Quenum has earned the respect of pioneers and newcomers across the dance music spectrum.

The new three-tracker is his follow-up to last year’s Valley Of True People EP on Damian Lazarus‘ imprint, and his subsequent Darly EP on Diversions Music. Filled with magnetic kick-hat combos, tribal percussion, and ethereal tones, the EP’s “Little Secret” and “Amnesia” are minimal late-night weapons. Tapping Watergate resident Yulia Niko for remix duty, the Berliner brings a subtle touch of acid to the title track that perfectly rounds off the record. Check out the EP below.

“When I made Little Secret, I imagined myself in a gospel church, with the chorus around me,” Quenum says about the release. “That’s why I used a strong and deep bassline, with vocals and the organ. ‘Amnesia’ is the darker track on this EP. It’s slightly hypnotic, as if you were meditating in the middle of the dance floor.”

Quenum’s Little Secret is out now via Crosstown Rebels. Purchase on Beatport.
