DJ Monk

Bio

From small dark clubs to massive outdoor festivals, always turning it out - it is here where you, the subterranean public may encounter The Monk the Mack-Of-All-Trades, dj/producer/artist and overall hustler of culture. Banging out a soundtrack of underground party music that jumps from hard house and breaks to slamming disco-tech, and twisted techno, to drum and bass rinse-outs, the dreadlocked Monk punishes the crossfader as he works one record against another in a style that owes more to hip hop than to conventional club DJ'ing.

As one of the Founders of Rabbit in the Moon, Pimp Juice and Hallucination Records, Monk is a corner stone of the Southeastern U.S. Scene and has established himself as a devoted player in the Electronic Music Industry worldwide. Monk is best known for his early work and collaboration with Confucius in the collective "Rabbit In The Moon" and as the opening dj to the RITM live show for over a decade ('92-2002). Together, Confucius and the Monk have remixed several multi-platinum artists including Sarah McLachlan, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, and White Zombie, while their original tracks have graced the dj mix cds of international superstars like Sasha & John Digweed.

Monk is now breaking new ground with several innovative audio-visual projects, establishing a new solo career apart from R.I.T.M., and running Hallucination Recordings full time. Monk, with partner "The Track Mack", still keeps busy remixing world renowned artists like Sting, Limp Bizkit, and Britney Spears. Constantly in demand, his remixes are taking the Billboard Dance / Club Play charts by storm, and charting in BILLBOARDS' TOP TEN with Cooler Kids "Punk Debutante", Boomkat's "The Wreckoning", T.A.T.U.'s "All The Things She Said" and Petey Pablo's "Freek-A-Leek".

Monk's remix expertise is constantly in demand with industry professionals and artists.

One of the most versatile djs around, Monk is known for his unique dj sets ranging from his traditional hardbangin' house -vs- funky breaks style with a touch of drum & bass & hip hop, to a deeper "Dark Side Of The Monk" set that leans toward a darker tech-house meets tribal & disco house style.
