Quintron

OneBeat 2016 Collaborating Artist

Producer

New Orleans, United States

Robert Rolson (a.k.a) Quintron is a New Orleans-based producer and performer. Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and “Swamp-Tech” dance music in the Crescent City for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. He has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance. Quintron regards his most significant creation to be his patented instrument called the DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. (Notable DRUM BUDDY clients include performers Nels Cline of Wilco, Laurie Anderson, and Mr. Dibbs.)
