This is the album I'm most excited about so far in 2016. I predict it will be the year's best — 1000 Watts by Quantic's Flowering Inferno project.
This is old school Reggae, Rocksteady, One Drop style with soulful singing, and mostly feel-good instrumental tracks. And yet, it has a totally modern vibe.
It's timeless, high-quality music that makes you feel good. It's also the perfect party music for summer BBQs & outside bars, so its release mid-June couldn't be better.
And, because Quantic lived a few years in Colombia, and is a big proponent of diverse Colombian music to the gringo world, there are even a couple Colombian tunes — including one, hot Cumbia/Reggae Dub type tune.
