about

“Creation (East L.A.)”, out 10th July, is the lead single to be lifted from ‘A New Constellation’, an album of soulful jazz instrumental pieces by Quantic Presents The Western Transient.

“Creation (East L.A.)” is a song for winding your car windows down, dedicated to many good times in East LA and encapsulating the spirit of this project, with solo performances by Sylves­ter Onyejiaka on flute & Todd Simon on trumpet. The single package also boasts “Creation (East L.A.) (The Reflex Revision)”, which sees remixer extraordinaire The Reflex working his magic on the track for discerning dancefloors. The album track “A New Constellation” is also highlighted on the single, bringing sonic imagery of a burgeoning galaxy to symbolise new beginnings and featuring a transporting Moog solo by Brandon Coleman.

The latest project from Will “Quantic” Holland, The Western Transient brings together a handpicked band of some of his favourite musicians to realise a set of new compositions paying homage to the rich, lively and intimate quality of the classic soul and jazz recordings. In characteristically mercurial fashion this new outing sees Holland following up the explosive, worldly electronic and vocal direction of his last solo album, 'Magnetica', with a suite of traditionally recorded pieces that capture the spontaneous beauty in the old ways of music making.
