Press Release :
'Dog With A Rope', out as a digital single on 7th June, is the first taste of the forthcoming album of the same name by Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno. The second LP from Quantic's acclaimed tropical dub and reggae inspired side project, the 'Dog With A Rope' album comes out on 19th July, perfect timing for this sun soaked sound, with all the hazy heat of a Colombian summer and heavy Jamaican influences.

As well as the straight up reverb reggae of the lush, instrumental title track, the "Dog With A Rope" single also brings you "Dog With A Rope (Dub)", a killer deep dub version exclusive to this single. You can also feast your ears on "Dub Y Guaguanco", a steadily building mix of reggae piano stylings from Alfredito Linares and the Colombian rhythm Guaguanco, with a vocal coro from Colombian singers Orlando and Virgilio Hurtado (who also provided the vocals to "Mambo Los Quantic" on Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro's highly lauded 'Tradition In Transition' LP, trivia fans).

With the Flowering Inferno, Will 'Quantic' Holland brings dub and reggae flavours to the Latin American and African sounds that he has been chasing round the globe since he first started collecting records. He introduced this project to the world with 2008's stunning and highly acclaimed 'Death Of The Revolution', and considers this follow-up album a more cohesive whole – a deeper and more intrinsic fusion of these varying musical strands. An album inspired by soundsystem culture but widened out far beyond just reggae and dancehall styles 'Dog With A Rope' is a Tropical soundclash - encompassing a heavy bass and reggae aesthetic alongside the Tropical dance-orientated music from Cuba, Puerto Rico and Colombia. While lots of DJs are currently playing both classic and obscure old reggae, funk and Cumbia, Holland noted that not many people are currently making new music of this type and building on these styles in a modern way, so with his signature combination of faith in the past and hunger to push forward, with this album he strove to make the connection. He recorded the album in his Sonido Del Valle studio in Cali, Colombia, the city he has called home since his relocation in 2007.

A true musical obsessive, Holland's insatiable drive to create new sounds has seen him record and release fourteen full albums under various guises in less than ten years, selling well over 100,000 records in the process and gaining worldwide acclaim as one of the leading lights of the leftfield dance music world. His last album, 2009's 'Tradition In Transition' by Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro, scaled the official European World Music Charts, gaining heavy radio and tastemaker support and rave reviews in the likes of Q, MOJO, The Guardian, The Independent On Sunday and many more publications worldwide. High profile tours of the UK, Europe and America followed, including festival headline sets; and this March saw Quantic DJing for the hordes at SXSW.

Look out for Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro's UK/European tour in summer, including a high profile Glastonbury set. For full tour dates click here. The "Dog With A Rope" album is out on CD and double vinyl on 19th July '10.
