From downtempo to funk, soul, salsa, traditional Colombian rhythms, cumbia, and trip hop, producer and multi-instrumentalist William Holland aka “Quantic“ has been making records for over a decade around the world, literally. Quantic’s contributions have in many ways redefined the traditional boundaries of electronic music through his ability to seamlessly combine many sounds into one cohesive composition and make it palatable to many, regardless of age or musical preference.
For good measure, here are a couple classic Quantic jams as a solo artist as well as one with Alice Russell during the time of The Quantic Soul Orchestra.
Quantic recently announced his first solo album in nearly eight years, “Magnetica,” along with a beautiful video for the single “Duvidó” featuring Pongo Love. The video was filmed in Baranquilla and Choco Colombia by Mochilla’s B+. If “Duvidó” is this dope and an indication of what’s to come on the album, his fans worldwide should be in for a treat.
The album is out May 6, 2014 on Quantic’s long time label Tru Thoughts.
Preorder the Magnetica here and catch Quantic on tour throughout the world (including SXSW in March) this year.
