what happens when you combine the ease of a charming voice with the love of experimentation of abstract electronica and traditional brazilian instruments? the result is a unique blend that in this form can only be heard on the new album by sol ruiz de galarreta entitled flying over brazil
within the first minutes of reverbed vocalsamples appearing out of ambientish soundscapes,the listener becomes a confederate within quantecs sound universe. statements that seem to speak to oneself from another space and time set the mood for his new album 1000 vacuum tubes. its surprisingly melodic an rhythmic opener ayahuasca sets the mood for quantecs versatile voyage through his own dub history. sven schienhammer, the man behind this moniker, has a broad view on the sounds an techniques of dub. where in other productions coldness and monotony became a standard sound of dubtechno, the psychedelic warmth of this longplayer let the listener dive constantly deeper into quantecs vacuum.
as most people already thought electronica and chill out have been for ever spoiled and degraded to cheap sell out labels by those countless and tasteless lounge and ibiza compilations, a cd came flying in, ready to save us from this jazzyloungychill-mess of the last years and re-new our perspective on this genre.
