On his new EP Best Boy out today, Waterford-based Wicklow producer Ross O’Sullivan aka Monto releases four tracks on the jazzy side of electronic and beat productions. The percussion is varied; short-sharp beats click-clacks, handclaps, snaps and head-nodding rhythms. The synths are chameleons, changing their tune frequently, keeping things non-linear leaving you guessing what’s coming or where the track is going. The bassline almost feel sampled from well-known tunes, ‘FTW’ reminds me of A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Sucka Nigga’ and in that regard also, these tracks could form the basis of some rhyming. ‘All Is Well’ is the last track on the EP and a good representation of what it has to offer. Best Boy EP is out today on Melted Music via Bandcamp and streaming in full below.
