A few weeks ago ThatManMonkz was visiting Miami and we were lucky enough to book him for a gig at Bardot.
He runs his own label called Shadeleaf which has been putting out some serious track from the likes of Saine, FunkyJaws, ManMadeMusic, and Kon.
Monkz manages to tread that fine line of simultaneously picking up props from all angles and wrecking dancefloors the world over whilst remaining resolutely underground and focused on the more interesting corners of dance music, so much so that RA have rightly stated that ‘Despite the pivotal part his hometown has played in electronic music history, you can't shake the feeling that if this were the work of some auteur from Detroit, Thatmanmonkz would receive much wider recognition from the house community.’
With remixes aplenty, and solo releases out shortly via D.O.G and Classic, much more from Shadeleaf, and an album due later in the year, '15 looks like it will be an even bigger one for this Steel City resident.
