QUAN­TIC Mag­net­ica Tru Thoughts

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC - JIM CAR­ROLL

Will Hol­land’s pro­lifi­cacy continues. Be­tween al­bums as Quan­tic, col­lab­o­ra­tions with the likes of Alice Rus­sell and re­leases with Colom­bian mu­si­cians as the Quan­tic Soul Orches­tra and Los Miti­cos del Ritmo, Hol­land has pro­duced a su­perb body of swing­ing work. Here, us­ing the Quan­tic moniker for the first time since An An­nounce­ment to An­swer (2006), Hol­land cre­ates great shapely grooves that bend and sway in the Latin, soul, jazz and elec­tronic breeze. The reemer­gence of the lat­ter shade is in­ter­est­ing as Hol­land com­bines both sides of his mu­si­cal world to make Mag­net­ica re­ally hum. You Will Re­turn (with a pow­er­ful per­for­mance from Rus­sell), Spark It (Caribbean bliss spiced with some lovely ’lec­tronic tones) and Du­vidó (with An­golan vo­cal­ist Pon­golove as the cherry on top of an al­lur­ing Colom­bian melange) are rea­sons to join Hol­land for this trip. quan­tic.org
