William ‘Will’ Holland is a musician, DJ and record producer from Bewdley, Worcestershire. He is based in New York City after spending 7 years in Colombia.

He records under various guises, notably, Quantic, The Quantic Soul Orchestra, and The Limp Twins. His music draws upon elements of cumbia, salsa, bossa nova, soul, funk and jazz. Holland plays guitars, bass, double bass, piano, organ, saxophone, accordion and percussion. Much of his sound is original composition with little in the way of sampling of other artists’ material.

Holland also has his own label Magnetic Fields on which he releases heavy soul and funk. He has also taken on remix duties for over 30 songs.


Sadie is the product of multi-instrumentalist producer Evan Shornstein from Woodstock, who, in the process of writing the EP, graduated from college and met with all of the vibrance, noise, and freedom of post- collegiate life in music in New York City. Youthful optimism conjoins with a newfound temperance, the perfect seat for a technical mastery uncommon even among producers older and more lettered.

Shornstein established himself as Photay while still an undergraduate at SUNY Purchase with his thunderous eponymous introduction to the world of music, 2014’s Photay EP on Astro Nautico. The music’s genuine emotional depth, unexpected sample flips and wild acoustic fictioning instantly caught the ear of tastemakers internationally from Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbes, and Mister Saturday Night to SBTRKT and Bonobo. Shornstein’s popularity skyrocketed as his music featured on Comedy Central (Broad City) and FX (Man Seeking Woman), Daedelus’s TEDx talk, and elsewhere. Shornstein himself took off, chasing opportunities to play in Hawaii, Austin, North Carolina, Vancouver, and the West Coast on a tour that included Decibel Festival and Low End Theory. Between shows, he spent a summer living in New York City for the first time and took a road trip across months traversing the American West.
