Cleveland’s Ted Feighan, aka Monster Rally, produces music that is best described as “sample-based tropical pop.” Ted began Monster Rally with the goal of assembling a bunch of old records into a completely different beast, combining his interests in hip-hop, exotica, tropicalia, and soul. Monster Rally creates tracks that manage to maintain a surprisingly organic sound, as if they were recorded by a full band on analog tape. There is something inherently nostalgic about the sound. Topo Design’s caught up with Ted this Summer and asked him to weigh in on touring (or lack of...), hobbies, travel and more.
