Brand new label ‘Monologue’ didn’t waste any time on making their mark with their first release. Label founders Max D. Blas and Alex Piccini let Ryan Crosson be the one to take the reigns in this instance, delivering a great debut EP for the label. Not forgetting to mention that Guti features on the EP, taking strong control over remix duties.

Wasting no time, Crosson delivers the energetic title track ‘What State I’m In’ Ft. Cari Golden’. The Bouncy and punchy groove, coupled with the hi hats which gently echo around in the distance instantly give this tune energy. A heavy bassline leads you into the body of the track where Cari Golden’s vocals sprinkle an essence of psychedelia onto the tune.

Next up is Dumb Dancin’ but by no means is there anything stupid about this record, its been perfectly engineered for the dance floor. Thick and heavy kicks fill the track while the arrangement of claps, hi hats and synths stab at you from all angles. Bringing it all together Crosson has created a track oozing with vibes but simultaneously packing a serious punch!

On remix duties Guti provides us with his 9 minute take on ‘What State I’m In’. Taking you into the deeper depths of the dance floor, his rolling bassline will be the soundtrack for those feet stompers late into the party. A great remix to top of a brilliant debut release on Monologue, which is sure to deliver many more of this kind.
