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.
