Ander B – El Monte (Robsoul Recordings)
Ander B swiftly follows up with his second EP in as many months for Robsoul, with the three track ‘El Monte’. June’s three-tracker ‘El Urban’ scored fans in Charles Webster, Terry Farley, Round Table Knights, Fish Go Deep and Mosca amongst others. The producer, based on the Dominican Republic, draws in his musicon a rich variety of musical influences. From salsa, latin, jazz, soul and disco, the two releases for Robsoul have been put together to capture the feel of, in Ander’s words, “…a portrait of the urban third world, like el barrio and los callejones…”. The outcome is a fresh sounding package of dance floor orientated tunes.
