Montel "Jack Swing"

Budding Irish producer Montel has raised his profile over 2013, appearing on a Let's Play House compilation early in the year, dropping his Eastside Kings EP with the label in October, and delivering 12"s through a few other outposts. With his one-off freebie "Jack Swing," Montel blends lighthearted dancefloor instructions (via the "Move it to the left/ Move it to the right" vocal sample) atop a jacking rhythmic base, laced with a playfully active bassline and a similarly jumping procession of full piano chords. The combination makes "Jack Swing" an appropriately soul-drenched house number with some rather useful instructions for those who may momentarily forget what it is exactly they're supposed to be doing on the dancefloor.
