If he's talking marriage after just one single, Lithuanian producer Mantas Stonkus Vel must be pretty serious, but with the calibre of tunes on display here, he's on his well his way to getting a positive answer. "Vilnius We Have A Problem" kicks things off with a trippy slo-mo booty groove complete with ridiculously deep bass and surreal speech samples. Further on we encounter heavy, stomping electro glam on "Catch Me", voodoo rhythms on "Pelkiu" and (possibly very tongue-in-cheek) high-pitched RnB meets Eurotrance on "Transdans".
The first release on music collective Mondayjazz's freshly minted label is a collection of fresh rhythmic shapes from a diverse cross section of their associates. Going from the colorful, tropical UKF rhythms of Cream Child's "Yellow Mountains" through the hip-hop squelch of Fulgeance's "Stinky", the frenetic, footwork inspired rhythms of Genys & Piotrus Pan's "Keep It Tight" and the 8-bit dubstep of 96WRLD's "Clark", Workers #1 is a frankly bewildering offering of under the radar talent. Check OL's "On My Mind" for our pick of the bunch - an awesome example of DJ Rashad style juke with a heavy dose of soul.
