Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week: Aug 1- Aug 7
Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week is Quantic Atlantic Oscillations by Quantic on the Tru Thoughts Label.
‘Atlantic Oscillations’ marks the return of world-renowned British producer Quantic with his most cohesive and intricate album to date. Bringing together new players and concepts with a dance orientated sound that has enchanted fans and tastemakers across the world for nearly two decades, it showcases Will “Quantic” Holland’s artistry and rare ability to intertwine the electronic with the orchestral.
Taking its name from such a formidable weather force, the release aptly brings together Holland’s global travels and the musical influences developed along the way. While “Atlantic Oscillations” has its roots in Brooklyn, “September Blues” was inspired by Quantic’s first long tour across the states. The west African feels of “Motivic Retrograde” sit alongside the simple Marimba Motif of “La Refexión”, inspired by time spent in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Written by the Colombian vocalist “Tierra Mama ft. Nidia Góngora” continues the journey along the Pacific coast, exploring the magical and often mystical elements of the Colombian mangrove, with its title translating to mean “Mother Earth”. Góngora features alongside other familiar Quantic collaborators, Alice Russell and multi-instrumentalist Sly5thAve, alongside New York based vocalist Denitia.
