about

"QTM is Quinn McCarron, a 23 year old graduate student in architecture originally from New Jersey. Growing up and to this day, his family spends summers in Holgate, the southernmost town on Long Beach Island. His debut EP Holgate is to some extent the document of a life anchored by those summers, all 23 of them spent in Holgate at the vacation home his grandfather built in the '70s; the same house decorates the cover that McCarron helped design for the release. He calls the town "a primary source of both continuity and musical inspiration". A drummer since 13, McCarron turned to making mashups and sample music when his living situations prevented having drums. Over the course of subsequent years he expanded the range of those first experiments, changing his focus to making truly original compositions, for which Holgate is first and best testimony. Though the mood in the photograph is somber, McCarron's music is colorful, animated in large part by catchy sample arrangements and cinematic juxtapositions of vocals and effects." -Dwight Pavlovic

"...an absolute must-have for anyone who loves big beats, shimmering synthesizers, and atmospheric vocals. That’s not to say that there are actually singers on here, though. Rather, QTM — a 23-year-old dude named Quinn McCarron — samples and meticulously manipulates lifted vocals, like on cloud rap-inspired bangers “Rocket” and “Diamond Dallas Trill”. Side note: Is that not the best song title you have seen in a minute? Anyway, stream and download the project below." -Potholes in My Blog
