Press Release :
The "Caliventura EP", out on 14th March, sees Cut Chemist, J-Boogie, Jeremy Sole, Daedelus and DJ Day giving the remix treatment to a handful of tracks from Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro's immensely acclaimed 'Tradition In Transition' album. The EP also features an alternative, previously unreleased version of the album track, "Albela".

This essential EP comes in a full colour picture sleeve featuring a photograph taken in Colombia by the celebrated LA-based photographer B+, who has become a key contributor to the Quantic aesthetic in recent years, and whose critically acclaimed body of work includes the famous shot for DJ Shadow's 'Endtroducing'. Inside the beautiful sleeve, you'll also find an exclusive download card with all five vinyl tracks available on mp3, plus five bonus goodies.

'Tradition In Transition', released in Summer 2009, was the inaugural LP from the newly created Combo Bárbaro, a band of unsurpassed international talent formed by Will 'Quantic' Holland to bring life to his new musical vision. Heralding more of a progression in sound than an outright change of direction, with his Combo Bárbaro, Quantic (who had already released more than ten albums and sold in excess of 100,000 records) set about mining the lesser-tapped musical sources from the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa and fusing those rediscovered psychedelic, experimental and rhythmically rich sounds of the past with deep funk and soul elements and folkloric vocal styles. The album release immediately garnered a huge amount of acclaim, with positive reviews and features appearing in magazines across the genres and around the world, including Q, Mojo, The Independent, XLR8R, Notion, iDJ, Songlines, DJ Mag and more. The band have toured the UK, US and Europe to rapturous responses, delivering a scintillating live display, and Summer 2010 saw them perform at Glastonbury festival, featuring on BBC TV's main coverage of the festival. While in the UK from his adopted home of Colombia, Quantic also appeared on radio shows including KCRW, NPR, Nemone (BBC 6Music) and the 6Mix, with live band sessions for Craig Charles (BBC 6Music), Mark Lamarr (BBC Radio 2) and Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1). In this period, the ever-prolific producer also revealed the second album from his dub-reggae influenced Flowering Inferno moniker, the highly praised 'Dog With A Rope', which came out in July 2010.

One of the songs to be remixed on this EP is 'Un Canto A Mi Tierra' featuring a stunning vocal turn from Colombian folklore singer Nidia Góngora – the original version, released as a single last year, has had over 150,000 YouTube hits and continues to be adored around the world as one of the most popular cuts from the album. The reworks from J-Boogie and Cut Chemist will doubtless bring even more new fans to the track. You'll also find the Daedelus and Computer Jay remix of the glorious instrumental track, "Undelivered Letter", which flips this tune on its head - from classically beautiful, sweeping soundscape to up-to-the-minute glitch fest - in a bold and successful piece of genre-hopping.

Look out for Quantic DJ dates in March/April, followed by a full DJ tour in June and a live tour later in Summer.
