Preview: Quantic @ Band on the Wall (Manchester; Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th July 2018)

Quantic

Worcester-born Will Holland aka Quantic returns to Manchester off the back of the recent Quantic y Los Míticos del Ritmo ‘Hotline Bling’ single, an inspired accordion band cover of Drake backed with the more electronic leaning ‘Doombia’.

Holland is certainly prolific – a talented bandleader, producer and DJ, the multi-instrumentalist has clocked up 13 albums in 17 years. From early beat-making in Brighton, he’s now based in Brooklyn following a decade living in Colombia where he immersed himself in the indigenous rhythms. Numerous musical projects have seen him leading the Quantic Soul Orchestra, the dubby-Latin Flowering Inferno and hooking up with Colombian folklore singer Nidia Gongora.

Essential listening for any fan of contemporary tropical music, a second night has been added due to demand, providing Manchester and the northwest with the opportunity to experience the formidable talent of a musician consistently at the top of his game.
