Quantum Fantay started in 2004 when Pete Mush and Jaro formed a new band after they’ve both been in the now disbanded band Oregon. Pete Mush is the current keyboard player in the Belgian progressive rock band Girribizzi and Jaro is handling the bass in a local cover band. Soon Gino Bartolini and Charles Sla came on board. Quantum Fantay plays a kind of music they like to describe as liquid space rock. If this description sounds unfamiliar maybe the name of Ozric Tentacles does ring a bell? But Quantum Fantay is a lot more than just a clone of Ozric Tentacles. They delivers spherical soundscapes of Hidra Spacefolk and musical virtuosity of Solaris and dancing grooves of First Band From Outer Space. Their prolific output and the diversity in the music have led to that Quantum Fantay is one of the best progressive space rock band. No You Tube video yet, but the music is at this location,
On their 8th studio album Yemaya Orisha they continue the journey into the world of prog which started on the previous album with the long four-art song Skytopia.
The new album have only five track, and all is over 7 minutes long. The 23 minutes two-part Veautifull Mocean featured all the trademarks described above. This time the band focus more on song building, using many tempo changes and extensive soloing, unusual to that extend so far on previous album.
There are is no new release from Quantum Fantay without major surprises for the longtime fans. The album sees the return of founding member Charles Slu on flute. And for the first time ever, it features female voices, singing distinguished words! In addition to the two founders Mush and Jaro well known Tom Tas handle the guitars and Luis Verlinden plays drums on the new album.
