FRESH: ‘Heart Of Mine’ – Dan Quinn feat. Oxygene

Dan Quinn records about this “Heart Of Mine”

UK singer Dan Quinn made his debut earlier this year with “J+K” and has been very busy, as he has just released his fourth track, “Heart Of Mine”, a tale of heartbreak, but dramatised over the top heartbreak. Dan tells us that “It’s almost written with hypersincerity in that the feelings are true but are amplified in the song”. “Heart Of Mine” is a joint collaboration with producer Oxygene, who Dan met online, based in Serbia!

Dan explains how it all came about: “Right this actually is interesting. So, I was reached out to by the producer Oxygene to work with him on synthpop projects. He lives in serbia so all the production and recording was done remotely. Him producing in serbia, me recording in the UK. Was an interesting process and yielded yummy results. I had originally self-produced a very basic version of this song that was very very rough, so we re-recorded it and remade it into a slapping song”.

Dan started writing poetry as a child, they were almost raps, that naturally developed into him writing songs and, as Dan says, “I’ve always loved singing”. Dan is a huge fan of the pop girlies, like Charli XCX, Lana, Carly rae Jepsen. He adds: “If a woman is singing and its in the pop genre I’ve probably listened and loved them at some point”. Would Dan like to work with the ‘pop girlies’? Well, he tells us “I want to write songs for the major pop girls”. We wish you well!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
