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"

Quantic / Alice Russell You Will Return ft Alice Russell If we have stock left it will be available online from Saturday 26th April, strictly one per customerLimited edition Record Store Day 7" “You Will Return” marks a stunning stylistic departure for both collaborators. This bittersweet, soulful psychedelic folk song sees Alice Russell stepping away from her more well-known powerhouse stylings and delivering a spirited yet wistful and harmonically delicate vocal turn; the glistening, banjo-led layers of instrumentation from Will “Quantic” Holland reflect his recent exploration of the traditional English folk influences of his upbringing, melded with the sun-soaked style he has coined in his years of working and living in Latin America, and his own distinctively rich production. The original version of this song will appear on Quantic’s new album (‘Magnetica’, which was announced by The Guardian and drops on 5th May); meanwhile, ahead of time, this RSD release brings two exclusive edits which are destined to become bona fide rarities. Side A brings the extended, more beat-driven “DJ Version” of “You Will Return”, while Side B features the breezy, laid- back and evocative “Dub”. Tru Thoughts 7" Out of Stock

Alice Russell To Dust Soul singer-songwriter Alice Russell releases her 5th solo album To Dust. Alice's big soul voice is a true contender to the likes of Adele, Beth Ditto and Amy Winehouse. ‘To Dust’ sees Alice exploring every letter of the soul lexicon. From the Prince-esque strut of “Hard And Strong” to the epic intensity of the title track. Heartstring tugging “I Loved You”; the sonically smooth yet emotionally raw “Twin Peaks” to the pulse-quickening build of “Let Go (Breakdown)” & psychedelic social consciousness of “Citizens” Alice is never less than scintillating as she displays emotions so real you feel you could reach out & touch them. The idiosyncratic structure of the LP, peppered with interludes & reprises, makes for a unique & satisfyingly whole ‘album’ experience. Tru Thoughts 10" | CD | LP
