Quantic Y Los Miticos Del Ritmo Hotline Bling / Doombia Heading up the A-Side, the catchy pop lines in Drake’s “Hotline Bling” lend themselves perfectly to the cumbia percussion and rhythms of Quantic’s phenomenal instrumental cover, to create something magnetic and unforgettable. Elevating the traditional use of instruments like the accordion, alegre and guacharaca, Holland hits with a Mexican Rebajada (slowed down or screwed) beat, tuning his accordion by hand, in the tuning style of Calixto Ochoa. “Hotline Bling” was first played by Holland in his DJ set for Boiler Room in Los Angeles last year, he elaborates: “The show was in a historic discoteca in LA, a city with a big appreciation for Colombian diasporic music and the influences of Mexican sonideros.” Cut to dub specially for the performance, the track won a remarkable reaction from the eager dancefloor and initiated a flurry of worldwide interest online. The B-Side brings an unheard accordion cut in the form of “Doombia” - a manifestation of modern instrumentation and frenetic beats. “The B- Side is an original, bringing accordion from the Colombian Atlantic closer to the digital footwork/house dance of Chicago. The flute plays an Andean melody with 808 snare keeping the double time rhythm” Holland explains. Tru Thoughts 7"
