British producer QUANTIC has traveled the world synthesizing the sounds of dance. A recent six-year chapter living in Colombia brought us the cumbia-tinged 2014 record Magnetica, “a fine slice of mellow grooves, zesty vocals, and full-bodied percussion.” (PopMatters) Although he is an avid record collector (and runs his own soul label Magnetic Fields), his own music does not rely heavily on sampling and is instead composed in his Worcestershire studio. His life’s work is already incredibly diverse and prolific, with 17 studio albums, 30 remixes, and 6 vinyl compilations of rare music.
The evening begins with two promising young Latin American artists. NYC-via-Argentina pop maestro TEI SHI “creates waves with nothing but her voice and loops,” (Pitchfork) and just released her debut LP on Downtown Records in March. With an ear for both the dance floor and the art house, she brings us “whisper-y, slow and sensual bedroom pop.” (The Fader) ALEX ANWANDTER, from Chile, visits Brooklyn behind his latest album, Amiga, which was ranked #1 in Rolling Stone‘s list of the best Latin albums of 2016. He is fresh off a Latin GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist.
