Jazz sensibility with future dancefloor orientated grooves, deep funk, tough drums and tropical rhythms…
Will Holland, aka Quantic, is one of the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today. Recording under various guises, (Will’s musical projects also include The Limp Twins, a duo he formed with sometime DJ partner Russell Porter on vocals, and his unmistakably savvy production completing the magic), it is under the Quantic moniker that he has blazed a trail where others have followed, enjoying consistent acclaim and success, with solo work leading to live bands the Quantic Soul Orchestra and more recently Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro, plus the intriguing Flowering Inferno side project.
Dog With A Rope’, out now on Tru Thoughts, is the second album from Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno, the tropical dub/reggae side project that Quantic introduced to the world with 2008’s highly acclaimed ‘Death Of The Revolution’. With the Flowering Inferno, Will ‘Quantic’ Holland brings dub and reggae flavors to the Latin American and African sounds that he has been chasing round the globe since he first started collecting records.
Quantic continues to spread his crate-digging magic with regular DJ tours… and he is coming to America.
