Quenum drops understated new track ‘Fast Action’


Swiss techno artist Quenum has unveiled pounding new track ‘Fast Action’, released as part of a SUM 8 compilation on the Second State label, out 12th June.

Founded by German duo Pan-Pot in 2014, Second State has since released a steady stream of records from some of the most exciting names in techno, including Amelie Lens, Andres Campo and Michael Klein – as well as a handful of EPs from Pan-Pot themselves.

Making music since 1996, Quenum’s back catalogue reads like a who’s who of some of techno’s most lauded labels, including Supernature, Serialism Records and Cadenza, the label he created with fellow Swiss don Luciano. More recently he released three-track EP ‘We Are Together’ on Spanish imprint This And That.

Underpinned by a forceful kick drum, ‘Fast Action’ builds in tension across its seven minutes, an understated cut that’s both moody and cinematic. A refined, invigorating techno track on a similarly stellar V/A compilation, ‘Fast Action’ will undoubtedly become a post-lockdown staple in clubs across the world.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
