My all-time favorite DJ/producer/musician Will ‘Quantic‘ Holland is releasing the Hip-Hop En Cumbia EP (as Quantic Y Su Conjunto Los Miticos Del Ritmo) next month on the mighty Tru Thoughts label. Quantic plays accordion-led instrumental versions of hip-hop classics in the classic cumbia style, plus a Quantic original track.
Quantic has been learning accordion for three years or so in Colombia and Panama, including being taught by accordion master Anibal Velasquez in the Colombian coastal city of Barranquilla.
Following the Serato vinyl trend, this special vinyl-only release features the 6 songs on the a-side and a Serato control tone on the b-side. Limited to just 2000 copies. Preorder here.
So psyched for this!
1.) Step Into A World [KRS-One]
2.) Nothing But A G Thing [Dr. Dre]
3.) Get UR Freak On [Missy Elliott]
4.) They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) [Pete Rock & CL Smooth]
5.) Cumbia de Dilla [J. Dilla]
6.) Cuarta Con Cuarta [Quantic]
