About this item
Back at the turn of the millenium, multi-instrumentalist and producer Will Holland, a.k.a. Quantic, emerged out of darkest Worcestershire, and attracted a lot of attention as a fully-formed purveyor of ‘cinematic breaks’-cum-electronica with the 2001 LP The 5th Exotic. Now, a million albums later, he’s a globe-trotting purveyor of everything from cumbia to drum n bass and lives in New York. But there’s always been a ‘dance element’ to his music as a few tracks on The 5th Exotic revealed and, indeed, the two cuts that make up both sides of this 45 (re)release which originally came out on the Breakin Bread in 2000. The tracks of course are the big horns-toting, funky boom-bap of We Got Soul (in it’s Rob Life remix form) and the similarly hip-hop set-friendly instro Fresh Rhythm which chugs along like an ATCQ instro. And you can’t argue with that.
