Montel's been busy so far this year, dropping the second release from the Seven Limited label as well as gracing the recent Various Artists issue from NYC's Let's Play House. His label hopping endeavours continue apace here as Wax Classic release Welcome To My House EP. This twelve positively prims with the kind of house trimmings the French love - chords, 909s, and cut vocals. Delayed cowbells shake in the background of "I Heard It", as woozy organs nestle up alongside diva vocals, while "Vibrate Stimulate" is a skippy jaunt through scratchy percussion and mellow pads. "Vibin" throbs with shook low end and vibrating bass stabs, with '90s symbol crashes scattering its arrangement. "What You Do To Me" strips back the low end, gradually introducing warm repetitious chords and extra percussion.
