The Noise Pop Podcast
The Noise Pop Podcast is a monthly series showcasing new music discoveries and a diverse slate of guest artists from the independent music scene and beyond. Produced by Noise Pop, San Francisco’s go-to indie music, arts and film festival for over 25 years and hosted by music journalist Adrian Spinelli (Paste Magazine, SF Chronicle, etc..), we deliver engaging episodes that are always rooted in the music that we love and that we know you will too. Past guests have included: Khruangbin, Thao Nguyen, Quantic, Wye Oak, Helado Negro, Speedy Ortiz, Rexx Life Raj, Shigeto, Låpsley, Thievery Corporation and more.

In the 2nd installment of our My Mix series, we sat down with Quantic's Will Holland. A true eclectic musician, Holland has been at the forefront of the electronic fusion movement, straddling genres from hip-hop and latin funk & soul to cumbia, trip-hop and more across 18 releases. The Quantic bandleader played a globally-minded Mix for us that ranged from James Brown to Ecuadorian-based producer Nicola Cruz. There's much to discover in this journey through the music that has inspired Quantic's sound. Dig into My Mix, with Quantic.
