The Quantum ft. Vordul Mega – Waves

The Quantum debuts on SpitFireHipHop with “Waves.”

In 2013, Bill Cosmiq began working as lead-producer on a number of projects for the IGC (Iron Galaxy Clik) record label (the brainchild of Cannibal Ox’s Vast Aire & Vordul Mega); one of those projects he was put in charge of happened to be the sophomore album, Blade Of The Ronin, from Cannibal Ox.

For perspective, being helmed to oversee the musical direction of Cannibal Ox’s sophomore album was no small task, as their debut, The Cold Vein, remains one of the seminal works of the New York hip-hop scene and is regarded as a cult classic amongst hip-hop purists (Pitchfork & Time Magazine included).  As the years passed, Vast & Vordul parted ways with El-P and fans waited patiently for the sophomore Cannibal Ox album.  Enter Bill Cosmiq.

Cosmiq is also a member of the NY based duo, The Quantum, (alongside emcee Salvador) who released their debut EP, Paragon (which featured Vast Aire), in 2014.  Following The Quantum’s feature on Blade of the Ronin’s, “Vision”, the group releases a new FreEP, Waves, with Vordul Mega assisting on the title track.  Waves is the first release from The Quantum in 2016, but they will also be releasing a solo-project from Salvador in February, their full-length group effort this summer and a Bill Cosmiq instrumental album in the fall.
