Just when you though one of the best tracks from everyones favorite Parisian was left for dead… our boy Valentino Khan has revived Gesaffelstein’s Bromance monster “Control Movement” and beefed it up for the main stage. Khan toured this year with The Bloody Beetroots and then recently with Skrillex, so this one has been heard far and wide… now its yours for FREE!
First debuted in his mix for Diplo&Friends on BBC Radio 1xtra, our friend Valentino Khan‘s new tune, “Cavepaint,” goes into the Jurassic era with caveman chatter and enough pumping bass to feel like you’ve been hit over the head with a club. “Cavepaint” also comes along with a Trap VIP counterpart, where Valentino slows it down and brings in the real dinosaur bass. What is dinosaur bass you say? Only one way to find out. And make sure to catch Val’s upcoming remix for Felix Cartal out on Dim Mak in the next few weeks!

Our friend and familiar Valentino Khan continues to stun the blogosphere with his versatile range of production. Today he finally released one of his uptempo weapons, a slimy techno driven ride that we actually named at the GDD HQ scurrying for captains chairs while working on music. I am humbled that the name stuck, and for this track you’ll see why it also is fitting to it’s ‘intergalactic acid’ driven progression. Grab onto this one and HOLD ON TIGHT.
In the next installment of his Hot Sex giveaway series, Valentino Khan shows us an uptempo side of his production – perhaps an influence of his recent tour w/ The Bloody Beetroots? Or just his transformation into new genres? This is definitely a high-energy rollercoaster ride, even villainous in its tone! Listen for yourself and grab it below…

All amidst, he is kickstarting another weekly giveaway with a double download of his massive intro track “Luxe”, kept in secret for almost a year now. if you hadn’t of guessed it, he created a “Trap myself” version on top of it, which is equally as filthy.
