Not quite sure why but it seems like an age since we’ve heard anything from Monto, well, until September that is. After a bit of a break the Wickow producer returned with a series of new tunes as a freebie EP, aptly called September.
Since then he’s been sharing new tunes on his soundcloud page, culminating with his new three track EP, Novemburrrr (aptly titled once again). The three track EP is quite heavily indebted to hip-hop, the beats in particular, as we’re taken on a tranquil head-nodding wander through rich and celestial sounds. ‘Möbius // Stripped’ kicks off this groove in style before making way for the pick of the pile, ‘Worlds Apart’. It is an uplifting and sparkling headnodder, fusing a rich blend of hip-hop beats, samples and a little bit of funk, before setting them to dance somewhere above the clouds. The fresh, feel-good vibe is kept alive to the end with short but sweet funked-up curtain closer, ‘NEED-ASSISTANCE’. An utterly fantastic three track collection from Monto, doing what he does best; making top notch tunes.
You can give ‘Worlds Apart’ the once over below and if that is to your liking, why not pop over here and download Novemburrrr? It’s free don’t you know.
