‘Close To Me’ – house, funk and new jack swing vibes all come together on Monte’s debut for Eskimo

Making his debut on Eskimo Recordings in 2019 with ‘Close 2 Me’is Hamburg based producer Monte. A hard hitting house track that drips with 80s attitude and funk, it follows on from his remixes for the likes of Amine Edge and Purple Disco Machine and acclaimed singles for some of dance music’s most respected labels including Exploited, Jeudi and Disclosure’s Method Records.

It all started with the bass-line,“Monte explains. “People know my early work for being bass line driven and this one is no exception. A good friend of mine said: No matter what you do, you’ll always come back to your first love, and in my case it was funk! “Close to me” marks the return of the Monte Funk sound, refined, straight to the bone. This one goes out to the ones who always believed that their lover is the chosen one, and fought hard for it, and have been rewarded with a long lasting relationship.
