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.
