    “Captivating” - THE GUARDIAN

    “Impressively diverse”– 4 STARS - MOJO

    “What a mass of ideas he’s built up… very much one of a kind” - Q

    “Rawness and soul…with the visceral punch and low-end of electronic production” - 4 STARS – RECORD COLLECTOR

    “A reminder that Quantic remains a true pioneer” – CLASH …praise for the ‘Magnetica’ LP

    Quantic’s acclaimed ‘Magnetica’ album keeps on turning up great singles, and the fifth track to demand its own release is “Spark It” feat. Shinehead. Out 6th April, this effervescent dancehall-inflected cut sees Quantic’s impeccably authentic production combining with the charismatic flow of reggae legend Shinehead,who hooked up with Will “Quantic” Holland in LA, when they both happened to be visiting the city, for a one-off recording session.

    “I'm a big fan, so it was an amazing opportunity”, says Holland; “The session was short, but he just nailed it. Every time the record button was on, he’d give a million different versions. He was really vibey, very easy to make records with.”

    In addition to the original LP version, this covetable single - released on translucent green 12” vinyl, in a nod to the herb that’s getting sparked - brings an exclusive Quantic Dub of “Spark It” plus a pair of killer remixes from Ghost Writerz and Ed West, representing the New Wave of Sound System Culture coming through via Tru Thoughts' freshly launched Sharp And Ready platform. [And the promo includes a snappy Radio Edit.]
