Monti­colombi Lon­don based U.K rap­per with Itali­an her­it­age is a rap focused solo artist who has drawn upon his routes to name the pro­ject and util­ises his Grandfather’s sur­name. Montocolombi’s latest release, Sim­mer Down co-writ­ten and pro­duced by High Focus power house Pitch 92 as part of an upcom­ing E.P calmly boasts about the annoy­ances of just try­ing to find 5 single min­uets of peace and quiet.

After front­ing the soul and hip hop col­lect­ive Soul Stretch Gang (that saw huge suc­cess when sup­port­ing Jam Bax­ter, The Brand New Heav­ies, and Nor­man Jay among oth­ers) for the major­ity of his music­al life, Monti­colombi was cata­pul­ted into epic change when a rare vir­al infec­tion lead to a sud­den heart attack at age of 22. From this, the eth­os of Monti­colombi was born: to pro­mote pos­it­ive energy that brings light into 

hip-hop. With this pro­ject, Monti­colombi has already reached the likes of BBC Intro­du­cing, Amaz­ing Radio and 1Xtra who took note of his pre­vi­ous single that hosts an entran­cing swag­ger, Pave­ment. 

Monti­colombi is a young cre­at­ive that aims to be inten­tion­ally thought-pro­vok­ing with his work. The New single Sim­mer Down is the per­fect example of this type of music, whilst also cel­eb­rat­ing fun, hon­est lyr­i­cism rather than the typ­ic­al sad­ness, of mod­ern, for­ward-think­ing hip hop.
