ABOUT THE ARTIST

Quantic is the recording alias of British-born musician Will Holland. His productions connect progressive musical ideas with spontaneous musicianship, exciting tonality and a fine ear for detail. Holland’s travels have lead him to record, collaborate, and perform all over the world, from festivals in Brazil, clubs in his native England, and the outdoor stages of Japan. Beginning his career at sixteen, he cut his teeth with downtempo and instrumental-beats releases on 45 records. During the early 2000’s, he moved to Brighton and developed a fresh and original take on the renaissance of funk, soul and Afrobeat with popular side project the Quantic Soul Orchestra. With a move to Cali, Colombia in 2007, Holland explored an ardent interest in tropical rhythms of the region and it was there he established his Sonido del Valle studio. Holland released his fifth studio record ‘Magnetica’ in 2013 under the Quantic moniker, which received critical acclaim for its marriage of South American folklore and a strong return to Holland’s signature electronic aesthetic. He has collaborated and recorded with the likes of Ana Tijoux, Jorge Drexler, Shinehead, Anibal Velasquez, and more.
