Playing tracks by
James Blake, MONKY, Stagga, Magenta, Jan Driver and more.
Monky has been an active force on the Cardiff scene since his turntablist days with Optimas Prime, he truly found his calling however with the advent of Dubstep. Both him and long term partner in Prime - Stagga, have developed sounds that are unique to the scene and have gained them a strong reputation. With a sound that is hard to pin down and floats around the outskirts of Dubstep and into the future, Monky has a lot of love from the scene’s heavy hitters such as N Type and Starkey and has recieved a number of BBC Radio 1 plays from Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens, as well as providing mixes for Bethan Elfyn and Rob Da Bank (with his Chrome Kids crew). If recent shows in the US are anything to go by, there’s a definite worldwide appreciation for the sound that he’s bringing so expect big things ahead for him indeed.
Catch Monky playing at CAI alongside: Dead Residents; Paul B (Future Garage Set); Kaptin + Hannah P (Old Skool UKHH Set); and Adam Corner on Friday July 16th.
