Cuidad Del Swing
Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno
Released: 23rd Jun, 2008
Label: Tru Thoughts
Unmistakably Quantic, but with an emphasis on dub/reggae sounds, the “Cuidad Del Swing” 7” opens with an infectious, summery piano hook, and the dub flavour will whisk you away to tropical summery sonic bliss.
The concept and style of the Flowering Inferno project simply rests on pleasurable, easy-to-listen reggae-inspired music made in a tropical climate, and the tracks were laid down in Quantic’s freshly-built studio at his Columbia home. Featuring Holland on various instruments, it trips along with a dub lilt and is mostly built on hip hop orientated beats. As with the last “Quantic Soul Orchestra:http://www.tru-thoughts.co.uk/artists/quantic-soul-orchestra” album ‘Tropidelico’, the Latin American location in which this music was conceived and recorded has infused it with an irresistible and authentic exotic air.
On the AA side of this 7” you will find “Cuidad Del Swing (Version)” on which the catchy guitar and piano trills of the original are replaced by a deep horn section, putting a different spin and mood onto the track.
With record sales rapidly approaching 100,000 across a range of inspired and critically acclaimed projects, the Flowering Inferno sound is the next exciting progression in Quantic’s musical journey – and a jaunty, fresh and melodic soundtrack for summer and beyond.Look out for the Flowering Inferno CD album and two further 7”s over the coming months.
