What can you expect from a mathematician-turned-deejay? Well, several quanta of head-thumping music, to start with.
One of UK's most popular DJs, Will Holland, will be spicing up Ahala with his EDM and Trance beats, on 4th SeptemberOpening the set for him are India's "Hachenstein" (Milano and Ajay).
William Holland is a musician, DJ and record producer from Bewdley, Worcestershire. He is based in Colombia, and records under various guises, notably, Quantic, The Quantic Soul Orchestra, and The Limp Twins. His music draws upon elements of salsa, bossa nova, soul, funk and jazz. Holland plays guitars, bass, double bass, piano, organ, saxophone and percussion. Much of his sound is original composition.
Holland also has his own label, Magnetic Fields, on which he releases heavy soul and funk. He has also taken on remix duties for over 30 songs. He decided on the recording name Quantic, as he was a mathematics student. His albums The 5th Exotic (2001) and Apricot Morning (2002) featured vocals from British artists including soul singer Alice Russell.
In 2003, he assembled The Quantic Soul Orchestra, a new project aimed at producing '60s/'70s style raw funk, playing guitar himself, and featuring other musicians including his saxophonist sister, Lucy Holland.
In 2007, Holland moved to Cali, Colombia. He set up an analog studio, and recorded and released The Quantic Soul Orchestra album Tropidelico (2007), and the self-titled debut from his tropical-dub side project, Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno (2008), which featured a variety of musicians from the area.
Hachenstein is India's upcoming Trance Music Duo, on their debut year. Their release on Apocalypse Recordings was an eye catcher for some of the best in the business including Andy Moor, Lemon & Einar K, Temple One and SoundLift.
