Quantic : Not So Blue

This is definitely one of my favourite tracks of all time ! Unbelievable how much feeling and depth you can find in an instrumental track like this.
Will Holland is one of the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today.
He has enjoyed consistent success with Quantic, releasing his first album, The 5th Exotic in the summer of 2001. It was picked up on by some of the most respected names in underground music. Richard Dorfmiester, Mr Scruff and LTJ Bukem all rated it very highly, not surprising when tunes like “Common Knowledge” and the near classic “Life in the Rain” had blazed across dance floors all over Europe.
He built on this acclaim with the release of Apricot Morning less than a year later, dispelling any talk of “the difficult second album”. His sound seemed to expand in every direction on ‘Apricot Morning’ and he became the first Tru Thoughts artist to collaborate with Alice Russell; Gilles Peterson ranked it amongst his albums of the year. The track Not so Blue comes from this album..

Before last track in this mix...

  1. You ARE SO right what about this track. It still is this the track from QUANTIC. But when it first came out, it had everyone running around of where they could pick this up. It still sounds so fresh.. and it always better when played in the Summer Months where ever you are in the world. Brilliant tune. It really is.

    This tune will never die. Never!
