MONKI (BBC Radio1/Monki&Friends/ZooMusic)

DJ Monki is an underground tastemaker championing new electronic talent on her regular Radio 1 show and digital imprint Zoo Music. She is a resident at Annie Mac’s critically acclaimed club night 'AMP', and a regular fixture behind the decks at clubs and festivals around the UK and Europe, recently playing headline sets at Glastonbury, Bestival, Hideout, Secret Garden Party, Benicassim, Boomtown & Radio 1 In Ibiza. 

Her box-fresh bass music inspired sets include everything from piano house to hissing snares and skeleton shattering sub bass.

Like all good selectors Monki did her homework and started training her ear at a young age. At 12 she curiously cruised the radio dial on the lookout for local pirates in South West London, before religiously checking out specialist shows on Radio 1 and Rinse FM. It wasn't long before she was interning at Rinse FM, and after putting some hours in she was offered her own slot on the station. Annie Mac soon heard her sets, and invited her to sit in for one of her Radio 1 shows, and then to warm up for her 'Annie Mac Presents' London event.

After 3 years on Rinse FM, Monki was invited to record a pilot for BBC Radio 1's 'In New Music We Trust', and has been a regular feature of the station since - hosting her show every Monday night on BBC Radio 1/1xtra from 10-1am

In addition to her radio work and releases on her Zoo Music imprint, Monki also curates her ‘Monki & Friends EPs' recorded at Red Bull Studios London. Now into it's 3rd instalment the project showcases the hottest blend of music-makers - including Cause & Affect, Friend Within, GotSome, Joe Goddard, Karma Kid, Lxury, Mak & Pasteman, Melé, My Nu Leng, New York Transit Authority, Novelist, Preditah, Shadow Child, Tazer, Yasmin, Wayward, Woz, Zak Abel & more.
