TOTD // 20/04 // Monki

Published: April 20, 2016, words by Watch The Hype

From teas to tunes, Rinse to Radio 1, Monki is an underground connoisseur who has scaled the DJing ranks with impressive speed in the last few years. Having interned at Rinse FM during its pre-legal stage, making teas and collecting orders from Nandos for the crew, Monki graduated from her Thursday and Saturday slots on Rinse to Radio 1’s In New DJs We Trust roster in 2013. At the age of just 21, her weekly Sunday and Monday slots on Radio 1 have cemented her position as a go-to selector for new, unreleased underground music. Combined with the successes of her label Zoo Music, in addition to her hugely popular Monki & Friends EP series, of which she has just released volume four ahead of her current UK tour, it’s needless to say there will be more musical maneuvers to come in the future by Monki.

Monki is currently in the middle of her Red Bull Studios Monki & Friends UK tour, of which she has gigs in Bristol and Sheffield on Friday and Saturday respectively as well as a London show next Friday. Following her first tour date last Thursday in Manchester, we invited Monki in to pick four tracks she knows will go off in the dance. It’s safe to say her selection seriously bangs.

Monki plays fabric’s Forms on Friday 09 March where we’ll be providing earplugs with our All Ears campaign. Get yours here.
