Based out of France, the untouchable sound of Monty makes a return to Alix Perez’s 1985 Music imprint to close out an epic year. With his Hypnotize EP earlier this year paving the way for a series of heavyweight collaborations with the big man himself, Monty pulls it all together on his Spatia EP.
Whether going head-to-head with Alix Perez on the skull-warping “Vergo” or rolling out a filthy bassline on the title cut, the entire EP features Monty flexing on a sound that is quickly becoming all his own. Even the slow-burning grind of the digital bonus cut, “I Know,” captures the signature dark vibes that Monty conjures up at the core before tugging at your heartstrings with epic atmospheres and melodic shifts that bring on the pain.
Still, if you have time to check just one tune, head straight to “No Place.” Featuring some of Monty’s best flex to date, this one is perfect for those long winter nights on the horizon. Infused with a subtle chill that hits you deep down inside, the pain is offset by the insistent dancefloor groove and hypnotic vocal hook. Toss in some rugged stabs that wind their way around the percussive skeleton of this one, and you have the makings of a late-autumn anthem.
This one drops next month, so prepare to delve into the beats in search of that soul you lost on the dancefloor oh-so-long ago.
Available December 7 via 1985 Music.
