About halfway through CFCF's latest track "Monolith," taken from his forthcoming longplayer Continent, you accept that the soft percussion you've heard since the get-go is the only beat you're gonna get. Then, about 30 seconds after you've come to terms with it, the Montreal-based, cinema-inspired Italo and house producer throws you a curveball, bringing in the high-hats that lead into the synthetic drum beat which drives the high point of his piece. The experience is short lived, but framed by a jazzy piano suite and bouncing bass synth, it's definitely worth the wait.
