Quantic ‘1000 Watts’ European Tour Starts On June 22nd21 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.
