Quantic kicks off Small World Music Festival

To get Toronto's 10th annual Small World Music Festival (September 22 - October 2) properly underway, Will "Quantic" Holland will be spinning a typically bangin' set of hot Afro-Colombian jams as the headliner of the Small World in the Square event tonight (Saturday, September 23) at Yonge-Dundas Square starting at 10 pm. The fantastic Baranquilla a Buenaventura mix that Quantic put together for our friends at the Sofrito site should get you up to speed for tonight's throwdown.
And if his hour-long session isn't enough of a good thing, you might want to head over to The Garrison (1197 Dundas West) afterwards where A Man Called Warwick is hosting his regular Turning Point Tropical Dancefloor party with special guest, Soundway label boss Miles Cleret – it's a good bet that's where Quantic will be spending the rest of the night.
