Just months off the heels of its collaborative debut, MR&RT (from which the “Tribes” track we featured back in March comes), the duo of Monster Rally & RUMTUM (a.k.a. Ted Feighan and John Hastings) is back with a new offering. On their new digital single, “Sunbay Hotel,” the cross-continental producers assimilate genres like tropicalia and lounge into their beat-heavy production, opening with jangly and warm instrumentation that slowly gives way to vibes straight out of an old James Bond flick. But don’t get it twisted—the rhythms at the core of Monster Rally & RUMTUM’s new tune are still unabashedly hip-hop.
