With his debut singles championed by global tastemakers, such as, Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff and Jazzanova, Quantic was quick to follow, on the initial success of, ‘The 5th Exotic’ Like Tru Thoughts label-mates, Bonobo and Jon Kennedy, who went on to record with Ninja Tune and Grand Central. Respectively, Quantic took his inspiration from sleepy 1990s chill and his enviable collection of funk 45s.
Apricot Morning, Quantic’s ambitious, sophomore, full length, is built upon the achievements of its esteemed predecessor. Plentiful strings find themselves, in friction, against the hoots and parps of afrobeat brass, the loping percussion is tasked with drawing these elements together, into a cohesive whole. Some inspired instrumentals were further fleshed out by the wonderful vocal contributions of EQ, Bristolian hip-hoppers Aspects and the majestic Alice Russell.
