Fast-rising, female music industry powerhouse and BBC Radio 1 DJ Monki delivers her debut EP ‘Voices’, which arrives on her new label &Friends on 4th May.
Monki’s annual &Friends compilations have become a continuation of her A&R expertise, showcasing collaborations from Denis Sulta & Hammer, Mele & Altern8 and more in 2017. This year, Monki took her A&R prestige up a level with her new label &Friends , kicking off with an EP from French producer Chambray.
Now, her own debut EP marks another step forward for the label. Stepping up with two cuts full of the energy you get from a Monki DJ set, Monki presents two tracks that have gathered support from heavyweight peers such as Jamie Jones, Solardo, Skream and Annie Mac.
Monki’s is a sound that has become steeped in house and techno, providing a steady beat and arpeggiated bass groove, to create an instant after-hours classic. The production is a contrast to the more disco-inspired sounds of ‘Love Magic.’
Having cut her teeth on the airwaves as a DJ on influential underground stations such as Rinse FM and Jackie Radio, Monki has DJ’d in some of the UK’s most iconic venues and more further afield before rising to become one of BBC Radio 1 ’s resident DJs. She continues to cement her reputation as an underground tastemaker, championing electronic talent such as DJ Seinfeld, Dan Shake and Big Miz.
