Montao- What in the World? (feat. Slug of Atmosphere, Koncept & Lane Shuler)
Following a string of supremely successful singles, including collaborations with Copywrite and RoQy TyRaiD, UK producer Montao ain’t slowing down… His swift return is via brand new post apocalyptic posse cut, teaming up with none other than Slug of Atmosphere, Koncept, and Lane Shuler.
‘What in the World?’ is a landscape of ideas, what if’s….could it really happen!? An unfortunate topic which is ever relevant, and forever in the forefront of the news and the world stage.
The music and production manoeuvres around a familiar piano riff, forged by Montao’s favourite all time composer, creating a perfect backdrop to set the scene.
It kicks off with the introspective and poetic veteran that is Slug of Atmosphere, painting a seamless and eloquent picture in his own unique way.Next in line adding some spice is Koncept ramping up the tempo with his innovative style and flow, paving the way for new kid on the block Lane Shuler. Lane blasts out his take with drama, tension, and intensity creating the perfect ending to an epic piece of work. The track is a cinematic Hiphop masterpiece, sketching out a vivid animated story of the unknown.
What in the World? is out now-

Even if we stacked all of the medicine cabinets never be tall enough to get ahead of the madnesses,
Even if you gathered every pint and flask, it don't provide a place to hide from the shadows of your past,
Even if i laid with every friend i've made, I’d still be just a couple strands of DNA,
Afraid of being betrayed,
You can't wear that disguise forever,
If you don't stop the bleeding gonna leak through your sweater,
And you better not stain my upholstery
Hopefully, I'm happy to make your acquaintance, anecdotally,
You could have caught a locomotive train to see me locally,
You could have kept it vocally and rang me on the rotary,
Brought you by whatever the censors choose,
It's probably not the news if it represents your views,
I'm trying to juxtapose with those that don't agree with my version of perfect,
Otherwise What in the World's the purpose...
Out the window hearing loud cries
5 stories up high
A sky rise in downtown
Single but with 9 wives
The mud is where he comes from
Judgement isn’t outlines
Look at all the results
I never want to downsize
If I see a fault I take it out my vault I gotta go,
If I mess it up I re-record the verse with a different flow,
The winter walking through the blizzard,
Nike’s on it’s freezing cold,
In Queens with some Timb’s on, my North Face,
I zip it closed ,
They pick apart the gifted art cause didn’t get the views,
But they missed the part that vision starts in different types of moods,
See the kid has got a bigger heart cause he was starved for food,
And it built a lot of skills he got then carved it out for you,
And this one wants the accolades but didn’t pay the dues,
Like you could’ve had your dream girl but didn’t make the move,
I just pulled up to Matinee but late a day or two,
There’s a shooting at the entrance but it didn’t make the news,
What in the World...
And that’s the day that me and knowledge parted ways,Things ain’t been the same since the day I landed in Martinaisse,I'm hard to kill, and I’m hard to phase, give the space the darkest gaze,When really all I am is just a common lazy carbon chain,
When I fall asleep all I see is visions of cannonballsm
Marching to the rhythm of the reckoning of revachol,
I wanna take my paint to the bloody pores of these granite walls,
And show various analogs who I am when the hammer falls,
Drop to my knees and I pray to the saint Delores Dei,
As if there wasn’t more to say, as If I wasn’t more than clay,
Run my fingers down a parabellum sunrise,
On a high horse for a pale ride, and one slug when it comes time,
Please God, I only got one shot, gun smokes cold and the blood runs hot,
Since last week this is all that I got, there’s a man in the tree, and a life I forgot,
I decide that I’m not gonna die on the spot, gonna fight for the win, bend light when I talk,
Live for the tie or you lie on the blocks, and there will come a time when the world’s gonna...
After decades of experience as a multi instrumentalist, recording artist, music publicist, artist manager, and everything else in between, these aspects have fused together and spawned a new musical landscape in the world of Montao.
Following the incredible success of his single releases to date, including a plethora of international radio support, multiple blog features, and playlist placements, Montao returns with string of releases dropping throughout the rest of 2023.
His up coming collaborations include tracks featuring Slug (Atmosphere), Copywrite, Koncept, RoQy TyRaiD, and Lane Shuler, elevating his status into new heights.
His music transcends from the depths of quirky samples, sofa style beats, and paints a cinematic story based around all the elements of the stories he creates combining elements of Trip hop, Hip hop, and Lo-fi influences. Encapsulated amidst the terrain of a curious and sometimes confusing world, Montao is putting things right…one beat at a time.
"I’ve always been mesmerised by tracks that effortlessly fill up the audio spectrum but still has tons of headspace. A real treat."
Fresh on the Net
"A suave mix of house and hip, with a jazz fusion overtone against a monster dragging backbeat...Montao shows that the speakers are the canvas and the mind is the brush.”
“A cross between Eminem and The Avalanches and more addictive than a tub full of Haribo Halloween treats.”
The Devil Has The Best Tuna
“The laid-back groove that reflects the city’s cool and calm attitude in the summer months allows you to effortlessly picture the sunny scene that Montao is trying to create. The trip-hop and low-fi inspired artist seamlessly switches up the sound to keep things interesting.”
"Oh this is really good, and it's an opportunity for Beehive Candy to add some more genre traveling under our belt! It's done with creativity and style, so enjoy, as we add the background story."
