Born and raised in Detroit, Quentin Harris came of age inspired by many of the legends of his hometown. Motown, Prince, P-Funk and of course, early techno instilled in Harris, a love of all forms of music. Today, he is recognized as one of the leaders in the field of deep house. It has been said that his work re-vitalized what had become a saturated and tired genre. Indeed Harris resists the very notion of working within genre parameters. So, where did this young Motor-City to New-York-City transplant get the Since then hes gone on to make a name for himself beside Darryl James, as the go-to remixer for major label R&B hits. His genre shattering remix of Mariah Careys Dont Forget About Us went to number one on the Billboard Dance Charts while Floetry Superstar hit number ten. Unlike any of his peers, he has captivated the attention of an increasingly attentive audience with the creation of house classics out of such accapellas as India Aries Ready For Love (also culled from the Motown CD) and Donnies Cloud 9. He has continued to evolve as a producer and DJ willing to take risks with genre. Mariah Careys Dont Forget About Us remix crystallizes his penchant for cutting edge writing and arrangement, as a seemingly effortless fusion of generic elements is, in fact, borne out of a sophisticated understanding of music composition. His body of work ranges, with near equal appeal, from vocal house (Solu Musics It Aint Love) to vocals laid over techy tracks (Bryon Stingilys Hate Wont Change Me / Jill Scott Not Like Crazy) to straight up techy (Quentin Harris Lets By Young) to afro-house tinged electronic / tribal cuts (Femi Kuti Traitors Of Africa). His tracks are A-listed by DJs as diverse musically as Danny Tenaglia, David Morales, Hex Hector, Carl Craig, Frankie Knuckles, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez, Deep Dish, Derrick Carter, Francois K, Joe Claussell and Danny Krivit. Each Harris record begins its life however, under the roof of New Yorks Club Shelter.
