Out now (apart from N/S America where it drops 10th June) 'Magnetica' is the new album from Quantic, as announced by The Guardian alongside a premiere of the lead single, “Duvidó” feat. Pongo Love. This LP finds British born Will “Quantic” Holland revisiting his roots as an electronic producer, blending cutting-edge and distinctive production with elements of folk, reggae, soul, highlife, cumbia and more, and demonstrating the rare quality and artistry that has enchanted fans and tastemakers across the world, over more than a decade of releasing music on Tru Thoughts.
'Magnetica' is the first Quantic album under his main solo moniker since 2006’s ‘An Announcement To Answer’, and in the interim this prolific artist has raised the stakes further with acclaimed side-projects including The Quantic Soul Orchestra, the Combo Bárbaro, Quantic & Alice Russell, Flowering Inferno and Ondatrópica (Soundway). Having spent the last seven years living in Colombia (in both Calí and Bogotá), a base from which he has worked with many of the finest musicians from Latin America and the Caribbean, on 'Magnetica' he now casts his net even wider to take in the sounds, styles and languages of the UK, Ethiopia, Jamaica, Brazil, Angola and beyond.
