Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro


Quantic has sold in excess of 100,000 records in his various guises, including solo projects and with his acclaimed live funk band, The Quantic Soul Orchestra. His track 'Mi Swing Es Tropical' with Nickodemus featured in Apple's worldwide iPod advert throughout 2007, bringing him further into the spotlight. In 2007 Holland moved to Cali, Colombia's third largest city, to pursue his passion for unearthing lost treasures from Colombia's musical past and making new music with the golden array of talent available today.

Quantic has sold in excess of 100,000 records in his various guises, including solo projects and with his acclaimed live funk band, The Quantic Soul Orchestra. His track 'Mi Swing Es Tropical' with Nickodemus featured in Apple's worldwide iPod advert throughout 2007, bringing him further into the spotlight. In 2007 Holland moved to Cali, Colombia's third largest city, to pursue his passion for unearthing lost treasures from Colombia's musical past and making new music with the golden array of talent available today. Upon realising the potency and sheer quality present in these players, Holland assembled his Combo Bárbaro (literally translating as 'group of barbarians or people from outside Europe’) to take up the baton from The Quantic Soul Orchestra in the next phase of his musical vision. (2) British DJ and producer Will Holland (aka Quantic) played guitar in various rock bands as a teenager, but it was his subsequent switch to house and broken beat that helped launch his musical career, especially after the 7" recording "We Got Soul" arrived in 2000.

(Quantic is also part of Quantic Soul Orchestra, as well as the soul-folk-dance duo the Limp Twins.) In 2001, Quantic's full-length debut, The 5th Exotic, was released by the Tru Thoughts label, followed one year later by Apricot Morning. After briefly pausing in 2003 to record QSO's Stampede (for which he played organ, bass, guitar, and saxophone, among other instruments) and the Limp Twins' Tales from Beyond the Groove, Holland returned to his solo efforts with 2004's Mishaps Happening. Quantic Soul Orchestra's Pushin On was issued one year later, and 2006 proved to be particularly busy for the prolific DJ, as he released a compilation (One Off's, Remixes and B Sides), a reissue of The 5th Exotic, and another new Quantic album, An Announcement to Answer. In 2008 he could be heard tinkering with a blend of dub and '70s Latin on Death of the Revolution, which also marked his first release under the Flowering Inferno moniker.

Dog with a Rope from 2011 used the same moniker while the Quantic name returned in 2012 with Look Around the Corner, an album recorded with retro-soul singer Alice Russell. Two years later Magnetica became Quantic's first solo album release in over seven years. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi Read more on Last.fm.
