Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno is the latest in the ever-growing series of outings from the unstoppable Will “Quantic” Holland, and “Cuidad Del Swing” is the first taster.
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 album ‘Tropidelico’, the Latin American location in which this music was conceived and recorded has infused it with an irresistible and authentic exotic air.
