Fresh Sounds: Monticolombi feat Lucy Debono – In The Morning
Monticolombi’s new single (third in his solo career) In The Morning feat Lucy Debono, produced by Steven Bamidele is a calmly energetic single that boasts about the blurry-eyed, love-filled days of youth. The song is the perfect example of modern, forward-thinking hip hop, celebrating the joys, rather than struggles. Good energy, positive message, soulful melody, great flow, and jazzy beats, it's all that you can get in one package.
Monticolombi came to life in the first official lockdown in the UK in early 2020. A quarter Italian, this rap focused solo artist has drawn upon his routes to name the project and utilizes his Grandfather’s surname. After fronting the soul and hip hop collective Soul Stretch Gang (that saw huge success when supporting Jam Baxter, The Brand New Heavies, and Norman Jay among others) for the majority of his musical life, Monticolombi was catapulted into epic change when a rare viral infection lead to a sudden heart attack at age of 22. From this, the ethos of Monticolombi was born: to promote positive energy that brings light into hip-hop. With this project, Monticolombi has already reached the likes of BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and 1Xtra who took note of his previous single that hosts an entrancing swagger, Pavement.
