APRICOT MORNING

Label: TRU THOUGHTS

Cat. no: TRULP034

Format: LPX2

 

 

With his debut singles championed by global tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, 

Mr Scruff and Jazzanova, Quantic was quick to follow on the initial success of ‘The 

5th Exotic’ Like Tru Thoughts label-mates Bonobo and Jon Kennedy, who went on to 

record with Ninja Tune and Grand Central respec-tively, Quantic took his inspiration 

from sleepy 1990s chill and his enviable collection of funk 45s.

 

Apricot Morning, Quantic’s ambitious sophomore full length, is built upon the achievements 

of its esteemed predecessor. Plentiful strings find themselves in friction against the hoots & parps 

of afrobeat brass, the loping percussion is tasked with drawing these elements together into a 

cohesive whole. Some inspired instrumentals were further fleshed out by the wonderful vocal 

contributions of EQ, Bristolian hip-hoppers Aspects and the majestic Alice Russell.
