QuanticMishaps Happening ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. Used ... $8.99
Massive work by Quantic – his third album, and easily the best one so far! There's a sophistication to the grooves here that we never would have expected in the earlier recordings – a keen love of a globe's worth of influence – summed up in the deeply changing mood of the set, as the music runs from breezy bossa to heavy Afro rhythms, sweet soul jazz, and classic 70s deep funk! The gimmicks are gone, the strings are cut, and the only thing supporting Quantic at this point is his own genius for the groove. Great throughout, and with surprising guest work by funk legend Spanky Wilson, Afro funk singer Sonny Akpan, and fellow Tru Thoughts labelmate Alice Russell – on tracks that include "Mishaps Happening", "Use What You Got", "Angels & Albatrosses", "Prelude To Happening", "Perception", "So Long", "Furthest Moment", and "Trees & Seas".

✨✧ QuanticOne Offs, Remixes, & B-Sides ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), Early 2000s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Will "Quantic" Holland – easily one of the hardest working men in the groove business! Will's work under the Quantic and Quantic Soul Orchestra name is well known from a few key albums over the past few years – but he's also got a resume that spans far beyond those full length sets, and runs into dozens of rare singles, remixes, and related projects. This overdue collection brings together the best of that extra Quantic work – pulling together a nice range of differently-flavored tunes that further expand our understanding of Will's funky genius – a good portion of which have been out of print for awhile! 2CD package is overflowing with great work – the Quantic titles "Archipelago", "Quick Sand", "En Focus (Pilooski mix)", "Departure", "Giraffe Walk", "Perception (Nu:Tone mix)", "Off The Beaten Track (Carmel mix)", and "Don't Joke With A Hungry Man (Seiji mix)" – and remixes that include "Girl Who Wasn't There (Quantic mix)" by Victor Malloy, "Where's Vicky (Quantic mix)" by Bathysphere, "So Sudden (Quantic mix)" by Handpolished, "1958 (Quantic mix)" by Skalpel, "In Your Own Time (Quantic mix)" by Dynamoe, "Secrets (Quantic mix)" by 3 Mins with Mark Murphy, "Transworld (Quantic mix)" by UFO, "Bababatteur (Quantic mix)" by Awa Band with Tony Allen, and "Bukom Mashie (Quantic mix)" by Oscar Sulley & Uhuru Dance Band.

✨✧ Quantic Soul OrchestraPushin On ... CD
Tru Thoughts/Ubiquity, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
If drums were enough to make us love a record, we'd love this one to death – but it's also got a heck of a lot more to offer! Quantic Soul Orchestra return with a smashing second set – one that's even tighter and funkier than the first one – with a sound that really bridges both sides of the Quantic camp! The first go-round, the classic style of Quantic Soul were kind of an experiment – one that got back to older forms of funk from the more electronic studio style of the Quantic releases. But by the time of this set, the Soul Orchestra format is very firmly in place – and instrumentally, the group are at the top of their game – coming across with a blisteringly live blast of guitars, horns, and drums that crackle with energy from the very first note! The strength of the set cannot be understated – as the group have really got their whole game totally down pat for this set – a tight, kinetic, highly frenetic approach to older deep funk modes – and one that's not just rehashing a 70s groove, but finding more than enough space for funk in the 21st Century! Alice Russell sings some great vocals on 5 of the album's 11 tracks, and the rest are all hard-smoking instrumentals. Titles include "Pushin On", "Introducing The Quantic Soul Orchestra", "The Conspirator", "Get A Move On", "End Of The Road", "That Goose On My Grave", "Feeling Good", "Hold On Tight", and "Paintings & Journeys".

✨✧ QuanticMagnetica ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quantic goes back to the old school with this sweet little set – and by that, we mean his own old school – from the years when he was mixing a lot more electric elements in his music! The record takes all the great Quantic sounds in recent years – his experiments with deep funk, Latin, and other global styles – and brings them back to that crispy production sound of the earliest Quantic records for Tru Thoughts – albums we really loved, but which also never had the sort of depth of this one either! The colors, flavors, sounds, and styles are stunning – definitely that rich tapestry that Quantic's come to express over the past decade – and if anything, the album's even more striking in the way he brings it all together with his magical touch. Guests include Alice Russell, Shinehead, Pongo Love, and Nidia Gongora – and titles include "La Planta", "Soul Clap", "Magnetica", "You Will Return", "Painting Silhouettes", "Aguas De Sorongo", and "La Callejera".
