Quantic Latest News - February 2007
Quantic - latest news gathered after the 24/02 La Maroquinerie show in Paris, early in the morning...
About the Quantic/Mulatu Atsake album
This one's gone in limbo state. There were plans of some recording sessions, with musicians from the Quantic Soul Orchestra, Miles Cleret... it was a kind of "super-group" thing, but then the "Broken Flowers" soundtrack happened, Mulatu got booked in the States, and the schedule kinda fell apart. It doesn't mean the project is scrapped, but for the moment it's totally delayed.
About Quantic's upcoming projects
Quantic was leaving this morning for Columbia, with all the tracks for the 3rd Quantic Soul Orchestra album he needs to finish, in his laptop. Apparently he wants both to mix down that QSO album and to record the next one, some kind of latin/hip hop project, featuring a singer who'd collaborated with Sidestepper (another Columbian/English crossover thing - check his album "3AM (In Beats We Trust)" released in 2003 on Palm Pictures).
Production for this new QSO album has been going on in the UK, Puerto Rico, Colombia & Panama. It'll feature two tracks with rapper J. Live (!!), one with Noelle Scaggs (singer from The Rebirth), one with a Panama singer...
