The Q Orchestra
The Q Orchestra (previously known as Quasamodo) is the musical project led by Greek producer/musician and songwriter Dimitris Nassios. Since 2006 the group have released their music via various labels, as well as remixing acts like Basement Freaks and Quincy Joints and in turn have their own material reworked by artists such as All Good Funk Alliance, Omegaman and Valique. After building up a solid reputation, in 2009 they signed a brand new record deal with Freestyle Records.
Citing influences as far reaching as Blaze, Bob Sinclair, Earth Wind and Fire, Dimitri from Paris, Deodato, Thievery Corporation, Nirvana and The Prodigy ensures that their music is in touch with the roots of soul and also the cutting edge of modern sounds and that is directly reflected in the new music on this brand new 12 inch and the forthcoming album it is taken from (Journey Through Sounds: FSRCD077)
‘Ritmo Diabolico’ is a Latin based club stepper, cheeky timbales and percussion drive along the edgy beat that sits somewhere between Tito Puente and 4 Hero. The flip side ‘The Pink Rider’ is a collaboration with The Sly Players (Good Groove Records) and is a deeply grooving contemporary disco tinged funk number that has a delightful and sublime groove that evokes The Gaturs club classic ‘Gatur Bait’ but infuses it with something akin to Greek sunshine!
