QuanticAnnouncement To Answer (UK pressing) ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2006. Used ... $5.99
This guy never fails to blow our mind – and with this sweet little set, Quantic takes his groove one step further! Not content to rest on the laurels of his already excellent previous work, Will Holland brings in an array of sounds from around the globe – obscure samples, ethnographic instrumentation, Latin grooves, and soulful contributions from key players on the budding west coast scene – all in service of a style that stretches as far and wide as the telephone poles on the cover image! The sound is incredible – dug out of the earth by Will's richly creative imagination – jumping across genres willfully, but never in a way that's sloppy or disrespectful. If there's one man set to bridge the many worlds of music in the 21st Century, Quantic may be it! Features guest work by Noelle Scaggs, Ohmega Watts, and Tempo – on titles that include "Absence Heard Presence Felt", "Blow Your Horn", "Sabor", "Meet Me At The Pomegranate Tree", "Bomb In A Trumpet Factory", "Ticket To Know Where", "Tell It Like You Mean It", and "Politick Society".

Quantic Presents The Western TransientNew Constellation ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A tremendous new project from Quantic – a set that has him moving into spiritual jazz territory, with all the depth and care he brought to previous funk and Latin projects! The music here is a mix of electric and acoustic modes – played by Will Holland on guitar with a group that also includes tenor, flute, trumpet, keyboards, moog, and some mighty nice percussion – all used in these warmly flowing ways that are totally wonderful – like some lost, underground 70s set on a tiny label by a local combo – performed with an understated brilliance that really holds us rapt! For a guy who could come on strong at times, Quantic seems to do even more by laying back a bit – and really letting the group energy flow on songs that include "Jumble Sale", "New Constellation", "Bicycle Ride", "The Orchard", "Mirzan", and "Latitude". CD features bonus track – "Latitude (to the point version)". CD

✨✧ Quantic Presents Flowering InfernoDeath Of The Revolution ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tropical funk percussion, dubby rhythms, and reggae inspired grooves from Will Holland, aka Quantic – his debut full length as Flowering Inferno – and a step deeper from one of the busiest soulful soundscape architects alive! The muse this time out is 70s Latin, dub and soulful reggae, bred seamlessly with Quantic's trademark blend of organic instrumentation and programmed beatcraft – and it's quite wonderful! As prolific as Will is, it's pretty amazing that he never loses the plot – and delivers truly soulful sounds in whatever thematic territory he's into – and it sure doesn't hurt that he finds such incredible players to flesh out the sound and bring the work to life. The record was made in Colombia, and it sounds like it – with Holland on guitar, bass, accordion, keys, guacharaca and gaita – with additional players on congas, bell, double bass, drums and piano, and occasional vocals. Tracks include "Death Of The Revolution", "Mi Chocolatina", "Make Dub Not War", "Cuidad Del Swing", "West Bound Train", "Alegria En Bella Vista", "Dub Del Pacifico" (one of the few vocal tunes, and really sweet female lead) , "Cuidad Del Swing (Version), "Juanita Bonita" and more.

Whitefield BrothersEarthology ... LP
Now Again, 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... On February 19, 2016
The long-awaited return of the Whitefield Brothers – melding global funk and tripped out psychedelia as masterfully as on their massive In The Raw album – and tripping it out and funking it up even more this time! The psychedelic sounds get more pronounced play this time out, but it's still well within the funk realm – gritty drums and percussion under fuzzed out rhythms, keys that range from a jazzy funk groove to thick layers of fuzz and bubbling atmospherics, exotic string accents, heady bass grooves and more. Their reach is global, too, with influences from the east and the west – and a heck of an impressive guest roster – with leftfield MCs on a couple gems – Edan & Mr Lif on "The Gift" and Percee P & MED on "Reverse" – plus Bajka, Brooklyn funk revival masters the El Michels Affair, and fellow psych funk traveller Quantic. Titles include "Joyful Exaltation", "Safari Strut", "Taisho", "Sad Nile", "Ntu", "Pamukkale", "Alin", "Breakin Through" feat El Michels Affair, "Sem Yelesh", "Lullaby For Lagos" feat Quantic, "Chich" and more.
