Band of the Day: (7.21.10) – QUANTIC (Will Holland) for today it’s his Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno

21 Jul Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno

BOD: (7.21.10) – QUANTIC (Will Holland) today’s version of Quantic is the Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno

Okay, I hope you’ve realized that NBD is not a one trick pony, a one hit wonder, a comfort zone type of guy. I’ve covered Beard Bands, Animal Bands, the Canadian Indie scene, even ventured into Sweden, Finland and Europe for a short time. Today I was feeling like I skipped my favorite part of the world…South America. I was reminiscing about our trip to Cartegna and Bogota and was missing the weather, the food, the beaches, the people and mostly the music and it’s ability to infuse it’s rich history into it’s modern music. South America has long been a settling point for Europeans and even Americans to lose themselves, but what you’ll find is that the music scene is like a ball of tape, it just rolls around and grabs from those same Euros and Yanks and creates a very unique sound. Most nights are filled with hot, steamy outdoor dance floors being managed by DJs spinning modern tracks overlayed with the cities historical latin roots. Countries like Colombia, who’ve infused it’s rich cultural sound with the sounds of the Caribbean are ripe for the taking when famous sound scientists move-in….Will Holland

Holland is a musician, DJ and record producer from Bewdley, Worcestershire. That’s London dudes. He is known for drawing in elements of salsa, bossa nova, soul, funk, jazz, guitars, pianos, samples and whatever city he’s living in at the time. Holland now resides in Cali, Colombia, a very traditional Colombian city, untarnished by American or European influence. His greatest passion is unearthing lost treasures from Colombia’s musical past and making new music with the array of talent available. Colombia is the perfect home-base to empower his remarkable creativity. Now Holland has started his latest project, Quantic’s latest album, Dog With a Rope, features Colombian musicians playing with a mix of cumbia, reggae, jazz, hip-hop, electric guitars, mambo’s and a smattering of other instruments. The Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno is yet another experimental approach to cross the great genre divide to bring mind-bending new sounds. It’s a summer album like no other. If you haven’t been to Colombia, you’ll be there soon. The album’s bare bones approach is unadultered by DJ bullshit, it’s raw, historic and modern. It’s music infusion that makes you love having two ears. Please listen and enjoy.
