darwyn Back in the 60's and 70's, there was a type of music you listened to at dinner parties called 'Easy Listening'. Well, this is the 2019 version of that. Nice string arrangements, non-intrusive, great for ironing, eating etc. Put it on at your next dinning event, I guarantee your guests will ask "What's this? It's got a good beat." Favorite track: September Blues.

Daniel Naron This is just exotic! ♥️ That steady dancefloor backbeat with beautifully performed clave riddims on top makes me move my feet every single time. There's just so much that fuse here so well together 😄 Favorite track: Orquídea feat. Sly5thAve.

‘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.

The LP is the first Quantic album under his main solo moniker since 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘Magnetica’, and in the interim the prolific artist has raised the stakes with further highly praised side projects including The Western Transient, Flowering Inferno, Quantic & Nidia Góngora and Quantic y Los Míticos del Ritmo. He has also relocated to Brooklyn, built his new recording studio ‘Selva’ and taken a bi-monthly residency at New York club space ‘Good Room’, where much of this release was tried and tested. These recordings, journeys and projects have all played a role in the creation of ‘Atlantic Oscillations’; “This record feels like it grew naturally as I grew to know New York”, Holland muses “I had started the record with electronic sketches in Ableton but soon found that with my new studio setup I was able to record everything with live musicians”.

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.
