As soon as it hit the shelves back in April 2003, the album was greeted by a wealth of fervent accolades from the music press, club and radio DJs alike.

Joined by an 11-strong band of supremely talented musicians, Will & Co belt out their very own electrifying brand of funk, soul, jazz and afro-beat.

Three of the album’s ten tracks are voiced by Alice Russell, who first appeared alongside Will on his second Quantic LP. Of these, a breathtaking cover of 4Hero’s ‘Hold It Down’ remains a highlight in the QSO’s repertoire to this day.

‘Stampede’ also includes a new vocal version of crowd pleaser ‘Super 8’ featuring Jon Hughes.

“Top quality real funk”
The Independent

“No loops, no samples – QSO stands up to the best of James Brown or Isaac Hayes. Astonishing”

“In any guise Holland is precociously proficient”

“The most anticipated LP of 2003”
DJ Magazine

“A magnificent, sun-splashed soundtrack for the long, hot summer to come”
The Big Issue

“Wonderkid Will Holland re-emerges with a slice of live recording perfection thanks to his recently formed Soul Orchestra. Funkier than a herd of hot-footin’ wildebeest”
Dazed & Confused
