Artist : Quantic
Of course, when you really consider that for someone in their mid twenties to be, in 2006, releasing what is essentially their 8th album, and racking up nearing 30 remixes since his first release in 2002, then that is quite astonishing.
We all know though, that quantity does not equal quality, so what really astonishes is the fact that every single release is a winner. Every single release is worth your time and sees him trying something different, exploring sound, and translating his own huge thirst for new sound into his own work.
There isn’t a musical genre out there that’s related to the hearts of funk and soul that he hasn’t turned his hand to, and yet at the same time he his one of the few producers around that always sounds like himself.
Whether it’s under his original Quantic moniker or as the live rocking funk soul heaviness of The Quantic Soul Orchestra you can spot a Quantic production a mile off, even if it doesn’t sound like anything you’ve heard him do before.
It’s a talent that has seen him work with some of the finest names around. Remixing Charlie Parker and Breakestra, collaborating with Sharon Jones and Mr. Scruff, sharing a live stage with De La Soul, to producing and writing with Spanky Wilson, Quantic’s is a talent that is admired by producers, vocalists, and musicians of all the ages. And naturally, clubbers around the world have felt the Quantic pressure too.
From the festival stages of The Big Chill, Glastonbury, and Roskilde, super smooth clubs in Europe and Japan, hard core roadtrips around the USA and Australia, tiny Muscovite basement sessions and Puerto Rican Candela sweat boxes, where there’s the music love Quantic will go. Literally, where there’s a Will, there’s a way.
2006 is set to be his busiest year yet. The ‘One Offs, Remixes, and B Sides’ collection has just been released on Tru Thoughts, his limited edition collection of rumba, plena, and cumbia music ‘Mofongo Para El Alma’ is just out, July sees him unleashing his brand new Quantic album ‘An Announcement To Answer’, and September is the launch of his QSO collaboration album with US soul legend Spanky Wilson.
Time for a rest perhaps? Never. Believe it or not there are still countries he hasn’t DJed or dug for records in, still sounds he hasn’t experienced, and still so many great records to make. Onwards and upwards my friends, onwards and upwards…
