Review: "Everything Under the Sun" is another example of lush, atmospheric, funky Jazz. The album includes hand picked vocalists such as Lizzy Parks in the unique track "Wildflower", the track that Gilles Peterson immediately picked out as a favourite cut, stating that Nostalgia 77 and Lizzy Parks were "two of my favourite acts of 2006 teaming up." The use of vocalists helps create a beautiful cosmic-tinged jazz album that sounds as much classic, spiritual, Impulse-influenced music as it does Cinematic Orchestra and Koop.
Review: It's commonly known if you cut Will 'Quantic' Holland, he'd bleed in little Tru Thoughts logo-shaped droplets, such is the bond between the artist and label. The latest Quantic long-player for the South Coast label, A New Constellation, finds the Bogota-based musician leading a hand-picked selection of musicians called The Western Transient. Their focus? To realise a set of new compositions paying homage to the rich, lively and intimate quality of the classic soul and jazz recordings. That Holland should choose to follow his last LP, the explosive Magnetica, with 10 tracks of more traditional jazz and funk proves he's still not happy to stand still as Quantic despite having a hand in well over ten long players.
