description

Quantic’s acclaimed ‘Magnetica’ album keeps on turning up incredible singles. The next track lifted from the album is “Spark It” feat. Shinehead, the single is pressed onto a special transparent green 12” record with a full colour sleeve. This effervescent dancehall-inflected cut sees Quantic’s impeccably authentic production combining with the charismatic flow of reggae legend Shinehead, who hooked up with Will “Quantic” Holland on a visit to LA for a one-off recording session.

“I'm a big fan of his work, so it was an amazing opportunity”, says Holland, “The session was quite short, but he just nailed it. Every time the record button was on, he’d give a million different versions. He was really vibey, very easy to make records with.”

In addition to the original LP version this covetable single brings an exclusive new Quantic Dub of “Spark It”, plus a pair of killer remixes from Ghost Writerz and Ed West, representing the New Wave of Sound System Culture coming through via Tru Thoughts' freshly launched Sharp And Ready platform.

Ghost Writerz – AKA Jason “Jimmy Screech” Bradshaw and Harry “Sleepy Time Ghost” Metcalfe – take the natural step of putting a dancefloor Jungle spin on Quantic's original, a tune which brings together two of their favourite artists. This release follow up on their own early singles, “Back It Up” and “How We Living” (a collaboration with Pete Cannon), which recently dropped to heavy BBC Radio 1/1Xtra support from Huw Stephens, Toddla T, MistaJam, Friction, Monki and B.Traits, plus Capital Xtra, Bang FM, Mi-Soul and Deja Vu, not to mention BBC 6Music’s Don Letts, Steve Lamacq and Huey Morgan.

Ed West (respected producer, DJ and drummer with reggae band The Drop), is a lover of the late 80’s dancehall sound channelled on “Spark It”, and here he lays a spacious, trap style bassline under the track for a clever update, also choosing to keep Shinehead’s indomitable vocal performance intact.
