A word from Quantic on the origins of the video and the track itself: The rhythm used in 'La Plata' is loosely based on one of the musical genres of Choco, which is called 'Chirimía'.
The first official single from Quantic’s freshly announced ‘Magnetica’ album is “Duvidó” featuring Portuguese resident, Angolan born vocalist Pongolove. Premiered by The Guardian, with a stunning video filmed by B+ in Colombia, the vinyl and digital single drops on 17th March ahead of the LP release in May.

Taken from Los Miticos Del Ritmo – Los Miticos Del Ritmo (Soundway)
From the sweltering tropical depths of Cali, Colombia Will ‘Quantic’ Holland’s studio band Los Miticos Del Ritmo (The Mythics of Rhythm) return with an album of hip shaking, dancefloor quaking instrumental cumbias. Released on CD, LP and download on the 30th April. The LP is 100% analogue and comes with an original screen-printed front cover designed by the London based artist Lewis Heriz.
Conceived by Colombian musician Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will ‘Quantic’ Holland, Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of la musica Colombiana. Released on 16th July on CD, 3xLP & download through Soundway Records.
“The groundwork for multi-instrumentalist/producer Will Holland, aka Quantic, and soul singer Alice Russell‘s newly released collaborative album started back in 2007. And over four years, the two longtime musical partners crafted what would finally be their first joint project in Look Around the Corner.
Made by B+, both video and audio for this mini documentary were captured at a direct to disc recording session in The Carvery Studios, Hackney, London, in August 2011 during the London Riots.
The album version of this track is out now on the new Quantic & Alice Russell LP 'Look Around The Corner'
"I'll Keep My Light In My Window" is one of Russell's all-time favorite songs which has scarcely sounded better than in this current incarnation, on which she exercises her famed powers as a classic soul vocalist.
