Both prolific and eclectic, Will Holland (aka Quantic), hailing from Worcestershire, UK and now based in Colombia, is one of the most excitingly diverse producers of this modern age.

Drawing upon latin styles such as cumber, boss nova and salsa, Quantic creates a refreshing blend of soul and funk that is driven by breakbeat, with his work often being lumped in with the nu-jazz genre. As well as producing albums as Quantic, Holland is often joined by fellow musicians to create the Quantic Soul Orchestra and The Limp Twins. What sets Holland apart from other producers is his use of original compositions, relying little on samples from other artists, making his music decidedly unique.

Having played guitar in a number of different bands as a teenager, Holland found electronica and dance music, switching to creating house and breakbeat, launching his musical career with his “We Got Soul” recording in 2000. This was followed by his full-length debut, “The 5th Exotic” in 2001, released on the Tru Thoughts label, which received widespread critical acclaim, establishing Quantic as a producer on the rise. His debut was followed by 2002’s “Apricot Morning” with both records featuring the delectable vocal talents of British retro-soul singer, Alice Russell, with whom he would go on to collaborate with in 2012, with the album “Look Around The Corner.”

In 2003, Holland assembled the Quantic Soul Orchestra to record the album, “Stampede.” This new project saw Holland picking up the guitar, amongst other instruments, leading his fellow musicians in playing a record of 60s/70s influenced funk, with a raw sound heavy on the groove. His sister, Lucy Holland, also joined him on the album, playing a saxophone.

Having traveled to Colombia in 2007, Holland created his own analog recording studio and began recording albums. He began to draw on many eclectic influences, such as in his tropical-vibed dub side project “Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno” in 2008, which featured a number of local musicians.

Holland has also set up his own label, Magnetic Fields, which focuses on releasing heavy soul and funk records.
