✨✧ Quantic & Nidia GongoraCurao ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Will "Quantic" Holland has really turned out to be a hell of a fellow – a guy we first fell in love with as a beatmaker, then as a funk artist – and now as one of the few people who can ever mix grooves with global elements and make the whole thing come out sounding right! Quantic's working here with Colombian singer Nidia Gongora – whose voice really gives a strong focus to the kind of territory that he's explored on other records – at a level that really elevates the music past any sort of underground expression, and may well allow Quantic a bigger bridge into a the world of contemporary Latin music! Yet the set's hardly Latin pop, either – as all the rich textures and complicated elements we love from Quantic's production are still very firmly in place – providing a rootsy vibe and funky currents alongside the fantastic lead vocals. Titles include "Ojos Vicheros", "Amor En Francia", "Se Lo Vi", "E Ye Ye", "Que Me Duele", "Dub Del Pacifico (version)", "Dios Promete", and "Un Canto A Mi Tierra (version)". (Deep Funk, Global Grooves) CD

Quantic Presents Flowering Inferno1000 Watts ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
A dubbier set than even before from Quantic and his Flowering Inferno project – a record that's still quite heavy on the range of Caribbean elements he blended with funk on the previous two albums, but one that also seems to draw a bit more strongly from the sound of Kingston overall! The bottom end of the record is nicely pushed forward to the top – with speaker-rattling basslines and rhythms, peppered with moody trumpet and tenor lines, and sewn together with these beautifully bubbling Hammond lines from Roger Rivas – which are maybe the strongest element in the set, and which definitely give the whole thing its most classic quality. Quantic plays guitar throughout – and most cuts are instrumental, but the album does feature some guest vocals from U-Roy, Alice Russell, Christopher Ellis, and Nidia Gongora. Titles include "Spring Tank Fire", "El Disorden", "1000 Watts", "A Life Worth Living", "Homeward Bound", "Ikey's Vibe", "Shuffle Them Shoes", "Striding On Grand Street", "Macondo", "Night Shade", and "All I Do Is Think About You".

OndatropicaBaile Bucanero ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The second album from this cool Colombian project that includes Will "Quantic" Holland – a group that's very much in the same criss-crossing of cultures as his Flowering Inferno ensemble! The first Ondatropica album had a vibe that was maybe more traditionally Colombian at times – but this time around, the approach is looser and freer – and seeks to explore the range of cultures that found a crossroads in Colombia, particularly near the coast! Unlike efforts of this nature from a few decades back, which could often be forced or pandering, there's a really rich, organic vibe to the record – a very respectful merging of cultures to create something new and fresh, in a way that makes the whole thing another feather in the mighty large Quantic cap. Titles include "Bogota", "Trustin", "Bogo Canoero", "Come Back Again", "Soy Campesino", "De Mar A Mar", "Lazalypso", "Malaria", and "Estar Contigo". CD
Also available Baile Bucanero (180 gram pressing) ... LP 23.99
