Detroit's Monty Luke delivers Full Flavor Music's seventeenth release, the Bomb On Bomb EP. Other than being Carl Craig's right-hand man at Planet E Communications, Monty Luke has been building quite the reputation lately with solid releases on labels like Planet E, Mothership, and his own Black Catalogue imprint. Monty brings a funky, raw eclectic sound to the techno underground, melding his upfront, cut-up DJ mix style and electrifying presence to dance floors worldwide.The Bomb On Bomb EP consists of three originals that cross the boundaries from acid house to funky techno to four-on-the-floor downtempo. In Monty's words: "The EP is an experiment in contemporary styles of house music with a couple of tracks that were the House of NOW, or slightly ahead of right now." "In Love With A Dancer" is the EP's total driver, with meaty synth stabs, teasing builds, and cleverly processed vocal treatments that scatter thoughout the mix. There's a sparse Dub of this track as well for an evocative late night DJ tool. "Bomb On Bomb" is a sly combination of classic-sounding acid house keys, pulsating rhythms, and a soulful vocal going on about a sexy lady. "13th City Stranger" is a sleek, downtempo house track and one of the first things Monty recorded after moving to Detroit from San Francisco. The title refers to the fact that Detroit was known at a time as the nation's 13th largest city. Solid stuff all around from Monty Luke and Full Flavor Music … enjoy!
