Quantic DJ Set – ALL 45’s – with Orion & Como Las Movies
June 4, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - June 5, 2015 @ 3:39 pm
Heard Entertainment Presents: Quantic Music DJ Set + Orion & Como Las Movies
6/4 | Doors 9pm | 18+ | $8 ADV / $12 DOS
Get ready to dance, Austin. Musician, Producer and DJ Selector Will Holland, aka Quantic, returns to EMPIRE to present a one-of-a-kind show — devoted to the beloved 45 rpm record!
Will Holland has been traveling with a box of 45’s under his arm since beginning his DJ career at the age of 16. Now, with over 18 studio albums and countless singles, he’s hitting the road to spin his unique sound of tropical-soul and sub-bass laden polyrhythm. Spinning a mix of original material, personally cut on dub plates by Holland himself, and a choice selection of tunes culled from a lifetime of crate digging, he’ll be filling up the dance floor at EMPIRE on 6/4.
Known for his devotion to analogue recording-techniques and creative, postmodern studio sessions, Holland wanted to highlight the humble vinyl disc which has kept dance floors alive since their conception in 1949. ‘The simplicity of the format of a 45 makes for a objective approach to music’ says Holland, ‘the 45 is the music lover’s choice— short and sweet, rich and telling.’ The 45 has forever been linked with the dance floor; whether in the cover-up label dances of the Northern Soul era, or Reggae-era specials spinning on Jamaican speaker stacks, or, with the chart topping singles of the 80’s pop era. With the rise in interest and sale of vinyl in the past few years and an all-around appreciation for vinyl, Holland will be offering an exclusive limited edition 45 for sale the tour.
