Monto is an electronic artist and producer from Ireland. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of him, he hasn’t put out an official release in three years which makes him certified #lowkey.
‘8th Planet’ takes you on a 40 minute journey from earth as the vocals gradually become more distorted and inaudible while his production becomes more sparse. Channeling the sonic styling of artists like Shlohmo to Nujabes, Monto seamlessly handles transitions from jazz influenced songs through to hip-hop and grime. Although the EP is split into separate tracks, 8th Planet is a release that demands you listen to it from beginning to end.
8th Planet is out now through record label Fly High Society. If you really love it, you can grab a copy of the EP on a blue glitter cassette tape, from their BandCamp.
