Will Holland is one of the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today. Recording under various guises, Will first found acclaim as Quantic. As well as Quantic and the Q.S.O, Will is one half of The Limp Twins, a duo he formed with Russ Porter. Initially a deejay partnership, it wasn’t long before they started recording, with Russ taking on the vocal ... Read more in Amazon's Quantic Store
The first official single from Quantic’s freshly announced ‘Magnetica’ album is “Duvidó” featuring Portuguese resident, Angolan born vocalist Pongolove. Premiered by The Guardian, with a stunning video filmed by B+ in Colombia, the vinyl single drops in March ahead of May's album release. A gem for DJs and collectors, the “Duvidó” 12” boasts two exclusive vinyl-only tracks – an entrancing and polyrhythmic Alternate Version of the lead song, and a new club cut “Mambe Nights” - as well as the “Duvido” instrumental. A fiery vocal delivery, with lyrics in Portuguese heavily dosed with slang from Portugal and Angola, makes this intoxicating party cut all the more unique, and showcases the style that made Pongolove a go-to collaborator for Buraka Som Sistema (most famously, aged just 16, fronting their huge 2008 hit "Kalemba (Wegue Wegue)"). Set against Quantic’s heavy electronic bass and authentic and experimental melodic elements, the playful, street-smart artistry of this great MC and singer calls to mind flashes of M.I.A., another early Buraka collaborator. Look out for Quantic Live tour and festival dates throughout the UK, Europe, US, Australia and beyond.
Will Holland's immersion in Columbian music and culture has borne another heady slab of dense, danceable funk - you can buy this with confidence if you enjoy up-tempo contemporary South American music.
This maxi-single will connect with you immediately and you'll absorb it hungrily, never to be forgotten once heard! There's so much going on in the mix, Pongolove's frantic vocals, widescreen percussion, hi-life guitar chatter, synth and brass wedges - knock the dust off your speaker cones and put it on repeat play!
The imminent triple-LP clear vinyl release is gonna be quite something, if this gem is anything to go by. Can't wait for the UK live dates!
