Following a string of supremely successful singles, including collaborations with Copywrite and RoQy TyRaiD, UK producer Montao ain’t slowing down…

His swift return is via brand new post apocalyptic posse cut, teaming up with none other than Slug of Atmosphere, Koncept, and Lane Shuler.

What in the World?’ is a landscape of ideas, what if’s….could it really happen!?

An unfortunate topic which is ever relevant, and forever in the forefront of the news and the world stage.

The music and production manoeuvres around a familiar piano riff, forged by Montao’s favourite all time composer, creating a perfect backdrop to set the scene.\

It kicks off with the introspective and poetic veteran that is Slug of Atmosphere, painting a seamless and eloquent picture in his own unique way.

Next in line adding some spice is Koncept ramping up the tempo with his innovative style and flow, paving the way for new kid on the block Lane Shuler.

Lane blasts out his take with drama, tension, and intensity creating the perfect ending to an epic piece of work.

The track is a cinematic Hiphop masterpiece, sketching out a vivid animated story of the unknown.
