First things first I want to give praise to my man Porchlite, who has always been on board with Beats of All-Nations, however now he is contributing to the site and sharing cool stuff throughout the week on Facebook. Be sure to check out PL’s Sounds and Pounds: October Top Ten for some real delightful treats. With this addition expect more frequent postings, with an even more broad scope of quality sound from around the world which you have already come to expect from us. May we continue to grow together.
This week Tru Thoughts hit us with some hair-raising new music from William ‘Quantic‘ Holland and Colombian vocalist Nidia Góngora, a frequent collaboration you might remember from Quantic and his Combo Bábarro and Ondatrópica. This new release follows Quantic’s soul induced collaborative album with Alice Russel and Combo Bábarro earlier this year.
This new double A-side “Muévelo Negro”/”Ñanguita” (Tru-Thoughts) drops November 4th with a limited pressing (of 300) on a beautiful tri-color striped 12” and limited red transparent 12″ vinyl (Pre-Order here). Stacked with instrumentals and a cappellas of each track, we’re looking forward to some dance floor ritual re-edits, but don’t let that thought ruin what’s at the source here and now. Check both sides of this single on the unique video below, to flip the record, simply click the deck (Quantic’s 1940’s Neumann AM-131 record lathe) or just let it flip itself (mobile users).
These songs exhibit the deep rooted chemistry Quantic and Nidia Góngora possess as they explore and experiment with new forms of curulao, traditional music from the lower Pacific of Colombia, highlighting some deep folk vox, marimba, regional drum patterns and just the right dose of electronic production from Mr. Holland. This release is a predecessor of Nidia Góngora’s upcoming debut solo album and Quantic’s first solo studio album in over six years. We couldn’t be more excited to hear what’s next from these two.
