MONT JAKE – SEXUAL FANTASIES

Dalston via Denmark producer Mont Jake follows ‘Come Closer’ with a second track from his upcoming sophomore EP, ‘Sexual Fantasies’. It’s a slower, slightly more stripped down sound that seems to reference ’90s slow jams more than it does the Soul sounds we’re used to.  “There are so many songs about sex but not that…

Mont Jake’s first single after a short hiatus gets the visual treatment this week courtesy of director Billy Boyd Cape, which sees the Danish producer do what he does best inside a neon box.  On the track, Mont Jake draws influence from Soul, updating it with an irresistible shuffle, as well as a sax part…

MONT JAKE – COME CLOSER

Mont Jake’s been on something of a hiatus since his last release ‘Daydreaming‘.  The intriguing Danish producer pushes his smooth, soulful sound a step further working with Gene Fisher & BadBadNotGood’s Leland Whitty.  A little more upbeat than his previous work, ‘Come Closer’ hinges on an infectious, shuffled groove – over which his impossibly precise…

MONT JAKE – DAYDREAMING

Mont Jake’s latest track is possibly his smoothest and yet; the oppressive horns on ‘Pearly Cloud‘ have mellowed to a gentle fanfare on ‘Daydreaming’.  First introduced to us via his ‘Shadow EP‘, the Dane has been to Tokyo shooting a new video for this slice of soulful electronica, which will arrive next week.  Stream below via…

MONT JAKE – PEARLY CLOUD

Having dropped debut EP ‘Shadow‘ just days ago, Scandinavian producer/vocalist Mont Jake releases a visual accompaniment to closing track ‘This Goes On’.  The video picks up where first track ‘Shadow‘ left off, as he and his muse leave the Macedonian wilderness and head for a nearby town.  Stream below via YouTube.

MONT JAKE – SHADOW EP

Mysterious vocalist/producer Mont Jake releases his ‘Shadow’ EP, with new track ‘This Goes On’ joining ‘Shadow‘ and ‘I Had Music‘, to complete the trilogy.  The project is as much a homage to Golden Age Hip Hop as it is a smooth, fresh take on modern R&B.  Verses from Wu Tang legend Masta Killa and Chicago’s Noname are…

MONT JAKE – I HAD MUSIC [FT. NONAME]

The mysterious Mont Jake follows up debut single ‘Shadow‘ with the equally soulful ‘I Had Music’.  While ‘Shadow‘ was blessed with a feature from Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Mont Jake turns to Chicago’s Noname [formerly Noname Gypsy] to accompany his smooth, crystal clear vocals.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

MONT JAKE – SHADOW [FT. MASTA KILLA]

Producer and vocalist Mont Jake makes his debut with ‘Shadow’.  Melodically, it’s a beautifully poised and delicate track but, rhythmically, it betrays the mysterious producer’s love affair with Golden Age Hip Hop [as does a guest verse from Wu-Tang Clan’s Masta Killa].  The spectacularly atmospheric video follows a hooded figure carrying a four track recorder through…
