PREMIERE: Hear 4 Tracks from Will Monotone’s ‘In Colour’ LP
Boston’s own Will Monotone is gearing up for the release of his first artist album In Colour on February 2, but DJ Times is giving you a special advance listen to four of the LP’s house shakers today.
Set for release on Will’s own Sub Society label, the album is a 21-track epic that comes as the result of nearly three years of work that traverses the limits of house, tech-house, and techno.
“This album took me roughly 3 years to complete, because I wanted to make sure that I vibed with each track. I took my time and gave full attention to each collaboration with the friends and artists that I respect. Making a 21-track album where each record sounds different and fresh, yet still maintaining my specific sound, was not an easy task. I couldn’t be happier with the end result.”
For the four-track DJ Times preview, Will shows off his diverse sonic palate with a smattering of styles. Opening with the vibing deep house of “Rules of The World,” Will keeps it groovy before teaming up with J Paul Getto on the furious, NYC-inspired club cut “No Taxes.” “Old Skool Fool” takes proceedings into decidedly quirky tech-house regions, with an update to his 2012 original “Dem Mai Hoes” following suit with rubbery basslines and a spoken vocal.
You can hear all four tracks below ahead of the LP’s release next week. For more information, go to Will Monotone’s Facebook page.
