Quantic’s Dog With A Rope
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the Buena Vista Social Club cut records in Kingston, or if Marley made merengue? Ever asked yourself what it would be like if all the borders between different types of Caribbean music were broken down?
Will Holland has, and Dog with a Rope is his answer. Better known as Quantic, Holland has brought together a variety of musicians from the UK, Jamaica and his adopted home of Cali, Colombia, and that diversity shows right across the record. It’s an impressive and engaging experiment, but ultimately fails to make the leap from interesting to genuinely exciting.
