QUANTIC: We Got Soul (ROB LIFE remix)/ Fresh Rhythm (Vinyl 7″)

QUANTIC:  We Got Soul (ROB LIFE remix)/ Fresh Rhythm (Vinyl 7Back at the turn of the millenium, multi-instrumentalist and producer Will Holland, a.k.a. Quantic, emerged out of darkest Worcestershire, and attracted a lot of attention as a fully-formed purveyor of ‘cinematic breaks’-cum-electronica with the 2001 LP The 5th Exotic.
