Will Holland is known for his adventurous musical productions, and skill for marrying a variety of sounds with the modern dance floor aesthetic. On this tour, he will be joined by legendary Colombian drummer/percussionist Wilson Viveros, and Texas-born multi-instrumentalist and regular Quantic collaborator, Sylvester Onyejiaka on horns and keys, with additional special guests to be announced.  

 

The show encompasses the many guises and eras of Quantic's recordings, from early downtempo to Soul, Afrobeat and Jazz, and the more recent period of Colombian-based Cumbia & Latin soul. Having come off a busy year of DJ touring, and a tour with Colombian project, Ondatropica, Quantic is ready to take his bespoke live act on the road.  

 

With 16 studio albums under his belt, as well as several compilations, and having collaborated and recorded with the likes of Ana Tijoux, Jorge Drexler, Alice Russell, Spanky Wilson, Shinehead, Anibal Velasquez, and more, Quantic will be touching upon these projects, yet taking the dance-floor vibe up another notch. Expect an evening of tropical rhythm, bass lines a plenty and inspiring music for all. 

 

Vocalist and composer Xenia Rubinos crafts movingly powerful songs dipping in and out of genre and structure to create a sound that is fearlessly her own. Xenia’s powerhouse vocals are at the center of her music which grows from a wide range of influences from R&B to Hip-Hop to Caribbean rhythms and jazz all delivered with a soulful punk aura. Her debut album Magic Trix was released in 2013 by Ba Da Bing! Records to wide critical acclaim. Pitchfork lauded the radiant singer as “a unique new pop personality” while a profile in The New Yorker described her work as “rhythmically fierce, vocally generous music that slips through the net of any known genre”. Xenia’s energetic live show and presence echoes some of the larger than life iconic singers she admired as a child including Judy Garland, Nina Simone and La Lupe while her powerhouse vocals recall the pop sensibility of Mariah Carey and soulfulness of Erykah Badu.
