Quantic ‘1000 Watts’ European Tour Starts On June 22nd| 21 June, 2016
On his latest project Quantic has returned to his Flowering Inferno moniker for an album of roots reggae. Whereas his previous Flowering Inferno album, Dog With A Rope, had a really strong Latin flavour, on this one his Latin love is a little more diluted with just a couple of cumbias and the emphasis most definitely on classic reggae grooves.
1000 Watts features contributions from U-Roy, Alice Russell, Christopher Ellis (on the infectious title track), Nidia Gongora and Hollie Cook for a record that is seemingly made for summer, laden with good vibes, deep bass and solid uplifting melodies.
To promote the release Quantic is setting off on a European tour with his band, starting in Glasgow on Wednesday 22nd June. Full tour dates are at the bottom of the page.
