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.

Listen to and download the whole mix by clicking on the link below, and let's he hope he continues the crate digging!
