Monto’s The Best Boy

Monto is 20 year-old Irishman Ross O’Sullivan. Over the past few years, he has built a stable of very capable blunted hip hop instrumentals and remixes, with a style heavily reminiscent of Knxwledge or Groundislava’s older work. His latest EP, titled Best Boy and released on Melted, is undoubtedly his best effort and could/should lead to some more exposure stateside. Earlier, XLR8R gave Best Boy standout “Homage” away for free, a lo-fi, low-key burner. Cassette tapes crackle, someone coughs across the room and an easy-going bass line allows the video game synths drift out into space. Stream the EP below and if you like, throw Monto a little bit of your hard earned $$$.
