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.

With Mishaps Happening--12 new tracks of retro funk, soul and jazz with a contemporary twist--Will Holland is back under his solo moniker of Quantic. The title track is an epic take on café jazz, with Holland playing most of the instruments over a cut-up drum loop—it's fine stuff and a perfect introduction to the multi-talented instrumentalist. Quantic has a remarkable feel for 1970s soul-funk, capturing a lot of the essence that made the JBs sound so distinct. "Don't Joke with a Hungry Man" and "When You're Through", both featuring Spanky Wilson on vocals, sound like undiscovered funk breaks squeezed into an irresistible hip-hop groove. Two songs that step up the pace are "Furthest Moment" (Latin house with a deep tribal rhythm) and "Perception", an amazingly soulful drum & bass romp. Mishaps Happening is very easy to listen to and always very cheerful--a great record by a very talented individual. --David Trueman

There is no doubt that Will Holland, aka Quantic, is an extremely creative and talented individual. Already having two albums under his Quantic moniker, as well as one album with The Quantic Soul Orchestra and one album with The Limb Twins (i.e. Will Holland and Russel Porter), his third solo album sees Quantic collaborating with names like the funk-soul vocalist Spanky Wilson, ragga-inspired vocalist Sonny Kaplins, French MC Trinidad and Tru Thought's soulful Alice Russell (soon to release her first solo album). What is quite remarkable is that Quantic plays most instruments, including guitar, bass, tenor saxophone etc.
Mishaps Happening is musically diverse, yet the funk element is manifest throughout the album. Alice Rusell provides lead vocals for the excellent "Sound of everything" and the ethereal "So long" and also performs vocals for the title track "Mishaps Happening" and the superbly arranged "Prelude to happening". French hiphop is being offered in "En focus", which fits nicely in the album. "Angels and Albatrosses" is a very interesting downtempo track with - somewhat - oriental orchestrations. My favourite track has to be "Don't joke with a hungry man". Fantastic basslines, incredible chorus and the voice of Spanky Wilson is plain funky! In a similar vibe is "When you're through" again featuring Spanky Wilson. The rest of the tracks I haven't mentioned (4 in total), in my opinion lack imagination although they adequately fill the album, hence the 4 stars!

I stumbled over Quantic with their previous album "Stampede" and was very pleased with that. So I had no hesitation in buying this one. It's got the funk feel of the 70's whilst it's feet are firmly planted here in 2004! Track 11 (Perception) is pratically a drum 'n' bass track but funky!
So if you have enjoyed listening to their previous work you'll love this. This is music for the more discerning funk listener who wants 70's vibes delivered in todays club dominated society.

Mishaps is the latest in a line for great albums from the genius boy that is Quantic. This dude has been knocking out quality funky chillout music for the past few years now and this is up to the same superb standard as before.
He combines the usual lazy beats with an extra element of funkiness and jazziness which makes for perfect evening relaxation. Quite simply, a must-have.
If you liked his earlier work, then get this CD right now. If you've not got into Quantic yet, then I suggest you start collecting...

I stumbled across quantic last year by reading Amazon reviews and I am pleased I did. I have the first two albums, both are very good and get a lot of air play.
While the previous albums contain the odd bum track, Mishaps Happening is very consistent with a quality eclectic mix of tracks which really capture the imagination. Tracks like 'Angels and Albatrosses' would fit in perfectly with a majestic long distance camel ride though the Sahara. Whereas 'Perception' is more in line with a banging D&B club classic. I'm afraid I didn't appreciate Trinidad's contribution, and the album would have been better if it was omitted from the track listing. I would like to give it 4.5 stars as a result but will round it up to 5 anyway because the rest is so faultess. I'll just skip over track four!

Wow! This is a superb release by Quantic. A perfect blend of Jazz piano loops, funky brass sections and basslines on top of these amazing drumbeats and percussions programming.
A few guest singers and a rapper add a touch of soul to this already warm music.
Quantic's Mishaps Happening will make you want to dance and get down; If you like soul music and have a taste for crispy beats, then you will love this album. It definitely puts you in a great mood; I'll definitely use this in a party. Worth every penny!
