Description

"Is there any musical genre that will holland touches that doesn't turn to gold?" DJ Mag Quantic Presents The Western Transient is the latest project from Will "Quantic" Holland, bringing together a handpicked band of some of his favourite American musicians to realise a set of new compositions paying homage to the rich, lively and intimate quality of the classic soul and jazz recordings. The resulting album, 'A New Constellation', is out on Tru Thoughts; in characteristically mercurial fashion this new outing sees Holland following up the explosive, worldly electronic and vocal direction of his hugely acclaimed last solo album, 'Magnetica', with a suite of traditionally recorded pieces that capture the spontaneous beauty in the old ways of music making. "A transient is a burst of energy that hits and falls off, leaving nothing behind. It is temporary, momentary in its action, like an ink drop on a page that fades almost as soon as it's dry", says Holland; "Music is a muddle of transients or rather, a meeting place for them, where the short lived can become eternal." His thirst for musical exploration has seen British born Holland release over 15 albums - ranging from electronic solo productions via the full live funk and soul bands the Quantic Soul Orchestra and the Combo Bárbaro to Latin, African and Caribbean styles - and become renowned as one of music's modern trailblazers. On moving to New York in early 2014, he started rediscovering his love affair with instrumental jazz and soul records in which the studio ensemble takes the spotlight. He decided to record a full length album paying homage to recording in this classic sense and also to collaborate with many of the musicians that he had worked with in the city of Los Angeles - these revered musicians included Brandon Coleman, Todd Simon, Sylvester Onyejiaka, Wilson Viveros and more.
