See Quantic @ The Garrison tonight, hear new mix of Angolan 45s



To mark the highly-anticipated Toronto return of Quantic, who'll be joining A Man Called Warwick for a Tropical Dancefloor throwdown at The Garrison (1197 Queen West) on Saturday evening, we've got a crazy hot new mix of Will Holland's most-prized scratchy old Angolan singles straight from his trusty 45s box. Here's what our man had to say:

"This is a selection of a handful of Angolan 45s that have proven their spirit & longevity in my record collection. Here's to the slap-echo guitars, scratchy dikanza, hope, aspiration and musical beauty that flowered from Luanda. This sound has long informed the systems of Barranquilla and parallels cumbia, samba & compas in sonic ancestral synchronicity."
