This really is a thing of beauty. Quantic has relocated to Brooklyn, built his new recording studio ‘Selva’ and taken a bi-monthly residency at New York club space ‘Good Room’, where much of this release was tried and tested.
You can tell. This LP is the first Quantic album under his main solo moniker since 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘Magnetica’, and in the interim the prolific artist has raised the stakes with further highly praised side projects including The Western Transient, Flowering Inferno, Quantic & Nidia Góngora and Quantic y Los Míticos del Ritmo.
Out on Friday (21st) on Tru Thoughts (obviously) featuring the singles “Atlantic Oscillations”, “You Used To Love Me ft. Denitia” and “Motivic Retrograde”.
‘Atlantic Oscillations’ marks the return of world-renowned British producer Quantic with his most cohesive and intricate album to date. Bringing together new players and concepts with a dance orientated sound that has enchanted fans and tastemakers across the world for nearly two decades, it showcases Will “Quantic” Holland’s artistry and rare ability to intertwine the electronic with the orchestral. Embracing his own love of travel, Holland utilises the space created to explore more creativity as a producer, taking inspiration from his experiences across the world. Nidia Góngora features alongside other familiar Quantic collaborators, Alice Russell and multi-instrumentalist Sly5thAve, alongside New York based vocalist Denitia.
“I think that the Quantic sound has always been around making electronic music more natural sounding and including live sounds that make you almost forget its electronic in nature, until something hits you in the face”Will “Quantic” Holland
