Quantic x Pongolove 'Duvidó'

UK-born/Colombia-based producer Quantic teamed up with Luanda-born Pongolove on 'Duvidó,' the first single off the upcoming 'Magnetica.'


Transatlantic beatmaker Quantic (aka Will Holland) is no stranger to Angolan cratedigging. After dropping this round-up of Semba music nine months back, the UK-born/Colombia-based producer has just unveiled a new Angolan flavor in his own material. "Duvidó," the first taste off Quantic's upcoming return to solo production, is a marimba-laced collaboration with Luanda-born artist Pongolove – who has previously teamed up with Buraka Som Sistema. The single's video, which premiered today on the Guardian and was shot by B+, is a visual feast of carnival-esque vibrations. Watch Quantic's latest with Pongolove below and head to Okayplayer for more on "Duvidó." Magnetica is due out May 5th (UK)/May 6th (worldwide) via Tru Thoughts.
