Is it me, or does every week present one more new house and garage act looking a piece of Disclosure’s pie? I’m not complaining, though; the competition out there is sounding hella good! Up next, we have new south London four-piece, Audio Monsters UK. Made up of two DJs, two producers, AM-UK’s central aim is to “crash the London streets” with their So Solid Crew, MJ Cole, and Wookie-influenced sound, and “remind everyone of the early 2000s garage movement.”
Well, from listening to their new number, “Trouble,” they seem to be on the right track. With dramatic, orchestral soundscapes weaving through its upbeat 2-step, and the underpinning gruff soul vocals of newcomer, D/C, “Trouble” almost has a cinematic feel to it. Like, I could totally hear this in the background of one of those UK urban/street flicks. Stream this little gem below, and get clued-up on the new wave of garage—sharpish.
