about

Cat No : DTW 17

Genre : Modern Funk, Hip-hop, Electronic


Monk' delves into the intoxicating sphere of electronics, which has
recently culminated into the Truman Shuzz EP. This talented Parisian
continues the West Coast tradition that we have grown to be very fond of, uniquely channelling atmospheric boogie-synths and swingin’ rhythmic beats, resulting in a distinct sound that is predominant in his first beat tape - which says it like it is : “Raw Futuristics (monkbeats.bandcamp.com/album/raw-futuristics).

We were hooked, and impressed, at his stunning narrative through electronic mutations. Amidst the rawness of his production, a nostalgic wave of warmth tides over each track. Exuding a melancholic charm, “Truman Shuzz” is a display of mature introspection - less forlorn, a lot more edge. Its startling how something simple can stir such compelling emotions in a listener.

We champion this optimism through adversity, it stimulates the movement of funk – it unfolds a story, and here we present to you Monk’s first chapter with Darker Than Wax.

A statement that it’s all about bringing it into the future.
A statement that music should have depth.
Expression and uninhibited creativity is the key.
