Favorite Tracks: Ben Montague – Love Like Stars
Perhaps my favorite track of the moment is a new one from the UK’s Ben Montague.
I’d not heard of the guy until the promo for Love Like Stars came across my in-box in the form of a remix from Cahill, that delicious trio of producers from Liverpool. I’ve no idea who penned the song (perhaps Montague himself?), but it’s got a beautiful lyric, an infectious melody, and Cahill’s production work turns into a flawless mainstream dance track with haunting synth hooks and arps that really drive the thing home.
The original version, viewable with the official video on YouTube, is also a terrific rendition of the track, and lets Montague’s pipes shine through a tad bit better than the dance production. (Embedded below.)
The single will be out soon on iTunes, at least in Great Britain… No word on whether the track will be available in the US iTunes Store.
Regardless, you can catch this one in my mixshows from time to time; it’s already made an appearance a couple of times, and I’m certain I’ll be spinning it more in the future.
