It’s an Upbeat Piece of Summer from the Hip Hop Connoisseur
An artist looking to spark joy through his soulful and upbeat productions, UK artist Monticolombi is a songwriter on the rise. His emphatic and joyful takes on UK Hip Hop, Soul & Pop have earned him fans around the world as well as support with key tastemakers including BBC Radio 1Xtra. On his new single ‘Praise’, the rising artist raises the tempo, employing a 4X4 drum pattern with an irresistible groove and unmistakable vocal prowess.
The 24 year old artist has been involved in music projects for 10 years, in some shape or form. Most notably, he fronted soul and hip-hop collective Soul Stretch Gang, going on to support Jam Baxter, The Brand New Heavies, and Norman Jay among others. It wasn’t until a rare viral disease caused a near death experience, that the young creatives priorities shifted to a solo career.
Speaking on the new single, Monticolombi states
“The Inspiration for this tune actually just comes from good memories of blissful summers drinking 7-40-7’s in the sun not having a care in the world.” – Monticolombi
