Monty and Visages are without a doubt some of the hottest acts in this ever-changing realm of bass music. With an arsenal of releases under their belts with 1985 Music and more, these tastemakers continue to prove their abilities at bending genres and pushing new sounds. Hailing from Toulouse, France, it only makes sense they absolutely smash everything they do, the artists coming from overseas in the bass world are truly next level. Whatever is in the water there, it’s working. Now, Alix Perez‘s 1985 Music and the two rising star acts are kicking off 2023 how they know best, with a brand new bop titled “Ange.”
One of the members of Visages tweeted he started this track after the passing of one of his cats, and the artwork and emotions behind the sounds certainly fit with those of loss and grief. “Ange” sits around the 140 bpm range, but also in a much softer, melancholy way, as to be expected when one’s grieving the loss of a loved one. Monty and Visages have such a natural ability to create an array of different emotions and frequencies in each release, crafting huge tunes that dominated the festival circuit in 2022 like “Hardware.” Some are heavy hitters and others touch your soul in the deepest of ways. “Ange” is one of those tracks that pulls more at your heartstrings in an array of ways.
The track starts off with this almost rainy day, mournful feel, especially when paired with the visual aspects. Visages and Monty hypnotize their listeners with each element of the track, pulling you in deeper and deeper. They never cease to amaze me with what they can create, and “Ange” certainly hits home in many different ways. We cannot wait for what 2023 brings these artists, Monty is finally hitting the states with a tour, so hopefully, Visages will be right behind him.
