The EP, titled Hep Cat, will be the third release of the year for Monologues, following an outing from Kolja Gerstenberg and a various artist EP, featuring cuts from Je Dàvu, Lrusse & Kraymon, Danvers, and Voyeur. Musically, the EP sits snuggly in the deep house realm, ranging from the more driving end of the spectrum ("Hep Cat") to the deep and sultry ("Voice From Above"). On the remix front, fellow Australian Jad & The delivers a groove-led breakbeat remix of "Importance Of A Hi-Hat," twisting the deep house vibes of the original into a swirling exercise in deft drum programming. The EP is already picking up steam amongst house jocks the world over, popping up in the sets of artists such as Todd Edwards, Danny Tenaglia, Jazzanova, and Auntie Flo, among others.
In support of the release, the label has offered up a full stream of Jad & The's remix, available via the player below. You can pre-order the EP here.
