Montell2099 delivers a crushing beat re-work of Missy Elliott's classic club/dance anthem Lose Control. Featuring Eski-style synths, Missy chops, and that spacious bounce that he's become known for, this track is one to add to your pre-town turn-up playlist. When you have Soulection co-founder Joe Kay jumping on stage to "rewind" your track you know you've got an absolute heater in your arsenal.
Relocating to Auckland (from the humble town of Katikati) to study audio engineering has been rewarding, both in the sense of finding his sound, and making performances and collaborations that much easier. Nearing 22k Soundcloud followers Montell is creating a name for himself just as quickly in the live venues through his energetic, high-tempo sets. With co-signs from Zane Lowe, Mr Carmack and Sango among others it's clear that this kid is going places. Go ahead and abuse the play button on our latest selection as Hottest Song.
