Audio: Quantic releases rare Ethiopian 45's mix

Quantic is an umbrella name for UK-born Will Holland: acclaimed producer, musician and DJ for over 15 years, whose projects incorporate various influences, from funk & jazz to electronic & folk music, to Latin, reggae, dub and cumbia.  He recently put together this mix of rare 45s he found in Ethiopia, calling it "a mix of folkloric and outer-regional music of Ethiopia, all 45s and some records that I think need to be heard. Less of breaks & wah wah and this time more of krar, claps, howling sounds and organ melodies. For fans of previous mixes Axum to Addis and Addis Sheckla Explosion." Listen to and download the whole mix by clicking on the link below, and let's he hope he continues the crate digging!
