Heralding a new phase in his artistic life, Glaswegian producer Vince Watson introduces his new alias ‘Quart’.

Quart takes its name from ‘The Watson Quartet’, which as Vince explains “was me playing everything anyway, so it’s now simply been reduced to Quart”. This explanation perfectly reflects the project’s musical aesthetic; Vince has clearly been through a creative process of reduction and distillation to reach the uncluttered calm of ‘Life Is Beautiful’.

“The influences for Quart are coming from classical, jazz and broken beat; I’ve naturally just evolved some of the music I was making as Vince Watson into something a little bit purer. This is something i’ve been wanting to do for a long time.”
