Monk’ // ARTIST FOCUS // BROWNSWOOD ELECTR*C 4
April 29, 2014
Ahead of the fourth installment of the Brownswood Electr*c compilation, we catch up with the artists through a series of questions about themselves. Here we have for you, Monk’ – listen to his track “L” below.
What are you up to today?
I’m going to a livestream session on a boat in Paris, gonna play some new stuff !
What did you want to be when you were little?
Probably a professional basketball player I think…and John Coltrane as well!
Describe your music in seven words?
electronic, hip-hop, melodic, spaced-out, nostalgic, funky, cheesy haha
What’s your favourite studio snack?
I guess it would be any kind of industrial/non natural chocolate or apples..
Who is your ultimate electronic pioneer?
I don’t know..I might say Flying Lotus because he’s the first musician I heard making this hiphop/glitch/electronic music so maybe him. He’s a kind of pioneer to me. I could say Pierre Henry to look sharp though..
If you could go in the studio with anyone dead or alive who would it be?
Oh man..I would say James Blake. He’s really special. Or Pat Metheny, he’s from another planet..
Where can people go to hear more from you?
They can go on my soundcloud page here or on the Darker Than Wax page you can fin my EP “Truman Shuzz”.
