“Majestic.. the kind of 21st century carnival music that will have all the global groovers going ‘wow!’” Paris DJs on Quantic

Soundcrash are extremely proud to announce a HUGE Carnival After Party with none other than Quantic and The Flamingods, at Stour Space – a Hackney Wick Art Gallery situated directly on the river. The tropical vibes will be going all night long from 6pm-1am, so come celebrate the August Bank Holiday with us in this special venue overlooking the River Lea.

Quantic’s sound is rooted in the richness of the golden age of recording with a fearless modern bite for the dance floor.His productions connect progressive musical ideas with spontaneous musicianship, exciting tonality & a fine ear for detail. His travels have lead him to record, collaborate and perform all over the world, from Festivals in Brazil, clubs in his native England and the outdoor stages of Japan. Beginning his career at 16, Holland cut his teeth with downtempo and instrumental-beats releases on 45 records – first with UK label Breakin Bread Records and later, Tru Thoughts. During the early 2000’s, he moved to Brighton and developed a fresh and original take on the renaissance of funk, soul and Afrobeat with popular side project the Quantic Soul Orchestra.

Quantic’s DJ set’s have gained him a reputation for effortlessly blending electronic beats with a world music edge, funk, soul and afrobeat and more grooves than anyone can really handle…

Very special guests are Flamingods, a five piece multi-instrumental band formed in Bahrain but with roots in the UK. The band take influence from different cultures around the world, using an extensive collection of instruments from as far as Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia, Turkey, Japan and Tanzania. Their latest release Moon has received critical acclaim from tastemaker blogs including The Quietus, The Line of The Best Fit, The Guardian, London in Stereo, Loud & Quiet, DIY Mag, NME and The 405 to name a few.

Join us for a Carnival After Party like no other, with the tropical beats keeping you dancing all night long at Stour Space, Bank Holiday Sunday, 28th August.

“Quantic’s contributions have redefined the traditional boundaries of electronic music.. his ability to seamlessly combine many sounds into one cohesive composition and make it palatable to many regardless of age or musical preference.”URB

“A melting pot of rhythms both far-flung and closer to home lends to the convivial atmosphere of a summit of tribal leaders left to their own devices.” The Line of The Best fit on Flamingods
