20-year-old Ross O'Sullivan, who produces music under the moniker Monto, recently sent over "Homage," the first track off his debut EP, Best Boy, which is available now on Bandcamp with a vinyl release coming soon from Melted. The Irish producer starts "Homage" with an extended dissonant chord and what sounds like clattering cassette tapes, gradually adding in a few chilled-out layers: blunted beats, video-game synths, and playful bass riffs. The hazy milieu couples with the crackle of vinyl and what sounds like the producer coughing on smoke to give Monto's tune some irie vibes.
