To become on of the most respected tastemakers in electronic music at the tender age of 21 is an extraordinary achievement. To also be a veteran regular of Rinse FM, have your own Radio 1 show and be the resident of Annie Mac’s touring club night behemoth AMP is quite frankly showing off.
It’s more than deserved though as all of this originates from Monki’s breathtaking talent behind the decks, a talent that has quickly seen her become one of the most exciting new DJs on the block. Unlike most though she felt a passionate responsibility to give a little extra exposure to the raft of quality unsigned tunage she was being sent on a daily basis, which led her to set up digital imprint ZOO.
To date the label has provided us with an output that’s as typically brilliant as one of Monki’s DJ master classes, all of which has marked Monki out as one of the most important driving forces in UK dance music today.
