Press Release :
The Quantic Soul Orchestra has sold over 60,000 albums worldwide to date and the music has been licensed to 100's of compilations and TV programmes. The first three QSO albums pioneered the sound now being made popular by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson. Last year Mr Ronson phoned Will Holland (the man behind the QSO) to ask if he could help him put together the Mark Ronson live band with members of the QSO, which we think gives an indication as to how far the QSO sound has travelled.

This fourth album finds the QSO fusing Latin, Soul, Cumbia (a Colombian style rhythm) and Hip Hop with a funk production ethic. It embodies influences from a number of genres and the unmistakable QSO sound but with a new twist. QSO takes it to the next level! This style has been influenced by Will's relocation to Colombia where the album was recorded with legendary local musicians as well as key UK members of the QSO (including super tight drummer Malcom Catto).

Will has recently returned to the UK to play Glastonbury, T In The Park, Oxygen and V Festival to a great response. No doubt helped by Quantic's energetic Puerto Rican summer track 'Mi Swing Es Tropical' being featured on the recent Worldwide iTunes advert.
