Montell2099 Delivers Wave-Leaning Ride-Or-Die Anthem “GO!” Featuring Sam Bruno

montell2099 go!

Auckland-based Montell2099 is a genre-defying producer with a boundless sound that moves between trap, wave, drum & bass, and hip-hop.

Making his debut on NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud VIbrations imprint comes “GO!” featuring the highly sought-after talents of singer/songwriter Sam Bruno.

“GO!” is an emotive trap masterwork that is equal parts gripping, addictive, and banging. Built around Sam Bruno’s captivating vocal performance, the track is a love-fueled ride-or-die anthem. Wavy melodic riffs and effervescent textures lay the foundation for the emotional topline to float over. As the vocal delivery shifts gears to a more accessible appeal, the beat follows suit by enhancing it with entrancing leads to build anticipation. The drops are primed for festival stages, combining fidgeting vocal processing, towering synths, speaker-filling low end, and crisp claps. The chopped and looped vocals carry through the emotional appeal while also making the track exceptionally addictive. Punchy drums and “hey!” vocal chants add a layer of grittiness and trap authenticity that is expertly counterbalanced against the stunning melodic tapestry.

Speaking on how the collab came together, Montell2099 explains: “‘Go!’ is a song I’ve been sitting on from when I was listening to a bunch of wave music, which is composed of melancholic melodies and a heavy use of saw synths. With those themes in mind, I created the main lead line for ‘Go!,’ and then built the rest of the track around the melody. Sam Bruno came on with her amazing vocals and gave ‘Go!’ new life—what started out as a song just for my live sets has now turned into one of my favorite vocal releases, thanks to Sam.”

Hailing from New Zealand, Montell2099 is a boundary-pushing producer whose sound has impressed across a multitude of genres from trap to wave, drum & bass, hip-hop, and beyond. His broad appeal and sound has opened the door to collaborations with legends such as 21 Savage, RL Grime, and Netsky. The latter resulted in the breakout smash “Broken,” which has amassed over 8.1 million streams. He’s fresh off of shows at Homegrown, Summer Classic, and Northern Bass, and his music has been championed by Mura Masa, What So Not, Alison Wonderland, Wilkinson, and Charli XCX.

Based out of Arizona, Sam Bruno is a multi-talented powerhouse, serving as a platinum-certified songwriter and singer, as well as producer and recording engineer. Her talents have shined through with some of the highest reaching mainstream artists including Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Eminem. She’s also landed gracefully at the top of dance music, most notably from her collaboration with Skrillex and Good Times Ahead on the classic festival-filler “Red Lips.”

“Go!” is an enthralling anthem that blurs the boundaries between ballad and banger for an unforgettable sonic offering.
