TUNE MONSTA - Holdin On
MONSTA have been described as having the melodic synth thrum of Flux Pavilion, the tech-soul vocal drops of Moby and the reverberant snares of trip hop act U.N.K.L.E -but their sound is largely instrument-based. The trio (producers Rocky and Rufio and vocalist Skaar) will release their first EP on Skrillex’s imprint OWSLA this Autumn. The EP boasts remixes from Dillon Francis, Alvin Risk and even though he has turned down requests from the world’s biggest stars, Skrillex has cleared his schedule to put his mark on the EP with an exclusive remix too, teaming up for the first time with non-other than Nero for the occasion!
Signed to the same management stable as Chase & Status, Knife Party & Sub Focus and remixing for artists such as Zedd, Labrinth and Skylar Grey; MONSTA have been played by Zane Lowe on as his ‘Next Hype’ and ‘Hottest Record In The World’. MONSTA are becoming a regular feature on the live circuit, having already wowed crowds at Camden Crawl, Wireless and Isle of Wight Festival and personally invited by Xfm’s Eddy Temple Morris to play a coveted slot at this year’s sold out Secret Garden Party. Their debut video has been premiered in the US by MTV and Mixmag in the UK- MTV describing it as their ‘most popular premier of the year.’
