Comment: New Yorker, US-native Christian Montoya is a tough guy with regard to his previous doings within the electronic and dance pop world. Although he has not reached to be known worldwide the quality of his music deserves it already. For instance, listen to his pseudonymous Miami Slice's Brooklyn 2 Brooklyn (2014, Hairdu), and Disco Cuts EP (2013, self-released/Soundcloud). The recent 5-track issue is an amalgamation of acidic electro pop propulsions, blinking synthesised pop gears and light-hearted electronica and danceable vibrations. Maybe it is not obviously visible but the aforementioned elements are profoundly imbued with club dance (house, techno) elements. You can catch a glimpse of it but there are not represented any of these elements in the pure stylistic way. Start Up is retrodelic by its nature because of reminding of Pet Shop Boys due to those bombastic hooks and majestic blasts therefore inducing charm and an inner chugging to the composition. Montoya exploits female vocals which is an always functional way to such sort of music. The favourite of mine is Out Of Space where the light yet mind-blowing rhythm is accompanied by spacious synthesised hovers and flickers. In fact, the same could be said about the subsequent (and final) piece as well. At times he is helped with vocals by Daniel Davis, and someone denoted as kitty. And that's enough for to constitute something very stunning. In a nutshell, the result is a top gear.
