Quantic Mishaps Happening
- Words: Si Hawkins
- Label: Ubiquity-Tru Thoughts
Will Holland worked in police forensics before being discovered by Brighton's Tru Thoughts label and, tunes replacing test tubes, he's still mixing it up. This third LP from his sponge-like studio project is a more organic affair. Brazilian, African and Far Eastern sounds supplement the funk, with an impressively diverse cast-Nigerian percussionist Sonny Akpan, French rapper Trinidad and Philly jazz chanteuse Spanky Wilson, among them-adding distinction to Holland's already classy compositions. Best, though, are the contributions from regular singer Alice Russell, and an enjoyable stab at jungle on the penultimate "Perception." Better living through chemistry, indeed.
