Los Miticos del Ritmo - Salvación
Los Miticos del Ritmo are a studio band put together by British musician and producer Will Holland aka Quantic. The dancefloor-focused instrumental cumbias on this single were recorded directly to tape at Selva, featuring Will on accordion alongside a mystical crew of ace Colombian percussionists.
Like the striking artwork by Matteo Rivano, a Colombian artist from Bogota who specialises in 50s comic book style artwork, the musical concept is vampire-themed. The bright, tropical A-side Salvación means "saviour", presumably from the Vampiro Sabanero - "vampire of the desert" - lurking in the shadows of the B-side.
Selva is Quantic’s recording home, built and conceived by Will and his partner Aziza Ali in Brooklyn, New York. They conceptualized a recording space and studio with ample natural light, the wooden-furnished grandeur of yesteryear studios, and spacious enough to house Will’s vast collections of vintage recording equipment, instruments and records. Selva also operates as a production facility, where writing, recording, mixing and vinyl mastering takes place daily. Releasing records on Selva, all made in this unique analogue recording environment, was a natural evolution. The focus of the label is to release several new Quantic produced projects as well as new exciting collaborations with other recording artists.
