Sales Information

Quenum is an extraordinary individual. A professional breakdancer that was raised in Africa, he
found love in London in the 80s through mastering the art of DJing to early electronic music and
broke into the spotlight as Acess58 in the 90s before forming the Cadenza label with Luciano in
2003.

His debut album ‘Face To Face’ is deliriously deep and melancholic, rhythmically complex and
gives a fragile new voice to techno. Across the eleven original tracks, Phillippe Quenum exudes
a graceful temperance creating tracks that flutter and take flight (indulge in the soothing hi-hats of
‘Escales’ and synth voices of ‘Children Of The Sun’) as well as rattle the bass bins
(sample the raw energy of ‘Basic Solution’ and delicate power of ‘Ritual’) Both sparse and insightful
(‘My People’) as well as intricate and anthemic (Never Loose My Soul’) Quenum’s delivery is always
quirky and slightly surprising and ‘Face To Face’ is a curious analysis into this honest musical
soul.
