Currently tearing it up on his “1000 Watts” Tour, we got DJ/record producer extraordinaire Quantic to make us a playlist of tracks currently blasting on his stereo. Enjoy!
Nicola Cruz “Puente Roto”
This is from the Ecuardorian producer Nicola Cruz’s most recent album. It’s based on a Cuban rhythm and I love it for the mix of electronic elements and folkloric sound.
Ocote Soul Sounds feat. Quantic & Chico Mann – “A Pesar La Vida”
This was a song that I collaborated on with Ocote Soul Soul Sounds whilst living briefly in Austin, Texas. It features Chico Mann on vocals and Martin Perna from Antibalas on horns.
Los Hacheros – “Pintate”
This is one of favourite songs from Cuban singers Roberto Faz, redone here by NY based Los Hacheros to spectacular effect.
Quantic – “Curuba”
This is a new Quantic song we have been championing on tour, its lively for the summer, I wrote it in New York last summer when it was really hot!
Unders – “Syria”
Desert soundscapes with lingering flutes, a pretty interesting track from Sabos’ Sol Selectas label.
