MONKEY SAFARI

Hommage

 

Monkey Safariの行く所にささない光はない。彼らがもたらす幾重にも重なる光には、 いかなるダンス・フロアも光り輝かずにはいられない。

2015年、Monkey Safariは新しいレーベル【Hommage】を立ち上げた。Richie Hawtinのレーベル【Minus】からMarc Houleの“Pepper”のリミックスを発表し、続 いて成功を収めた“Cranes”、“Walls“などのEP盤はMonkey SafariにWolf + Lamb、 Kölsch、テクノの重鎮 Guy Gerber、Josh Winkなど素晴らしいアーティスト達と のセッションの機会をもたらし、そしてさらにダンスミュージック界を牛耳るプロデ ューサー Mobyとも共にミュージックシーンを彩った。

2016年の彼らは Moby & The Void Pacific Choirへのリミックスのリリースで幕を 開けた。2015年に大成功を収めたMobyの“Walls”へ敬意を表してのMonkey Safari の粋な計らいだった。2016年、Monkey Safariが沈黙を破ってリリースしたEP盤“On” はテクノのレジェンド Paco Osunaとフランス人プロデューサー Chloéとのコラボ リミックスで、同じ年の六月に“Bernstein”が Johnn Digweed、Nick Muirとスペイ ン人プロデューサーのUNERを迎えリリースされた。Monkey Safariの最新のトラッ

ク“Boris”もイスラエルにベースを置くプロデューサー Guy Mantzur、ブラジル人プ ロデューサーRuizを迎えて『Beatport Tech House』のトップ10入りを果たした。

ダンス・フロアに光をもたらすMonkey Safariの行く所は今も光で溢れ、彼らが照ら す事の出来ない闇はない。

Riding in with the power to deliver sunshine to world’s rainiest open air events, Monkey Safari brings rays of light to whatever dance floors they cast their shimmering spell on.

2015 saw the brothers swinging to new trees, retiring their previous labels to focus on their new label 'Hommage.' It was the year of transformation for the German producers, developing and tailoring a sound suited perfectly for the unique club nuances while still keeping the core elements of melodic chords and grooves synonymous with the duos productions. 2015 unveiled Monkey Safari’s remix for Marc Houle’s “Pepper” on Richie Hawtin’s label Minus and their hugely successful “Cranes” and “Walls“ EPs that presented opportunities for Monkey Safari to work with some exciting musicians, such as Wolf + Lamb and Kölsch, techno heavy weights Guy Gerber and Josh Wink, as well as one of dance music’s most iconic producers, Moby.

2016 has followed in a similar fashion with a series of EPs and remixes released throughout the year showcasing the developed and matured sound apparent in the brothers' latest movements. At the start of the year, Monkey Safari’s remix for Moby & The Void Pacific Choir was the pick of the bunch, returning the favor after Moby’s successful rework of the duo’s track “Walls” last year. Their first EP of 2016, “On”, featured remixes from Techno legend Paco Osuna alongside French producer Chloé, followed by a second EP in June, “Bernstein”, with remixes by Johnn Digweed & Nick Muir and Spanish DJ and producer UNER. August saw the release of their most recent 4-track EP, “Boris”, with remixes by Tel Aviv-based producer Guy Mantzur and Brazilian producer Victor Ruiz, reaching Beatport’s Tech House Top 10.

The duo’s efforts in the studio have transcended to their DJ sets with stand out shows at Time Warp USA & Germany culminating a very successful year in 2015. Summer 2016 saw the brothers testing their evolving sound once again to new crowds with a slot at Awakenings Festival 2016 as the stand out attraction. On top of a heavy touring schedule at world renowned clubs and headlining slots at festivals, the duo rekindle their love for party promotion since their tender years in their hometown of Halle, Germany, where they own the infamous and recently remodeled “Charles Bronson” club.

The German outfit has been on an incredible run of form with promising developments in all of their endeavors and exciting news still to come. Be it a fresh remix or EP drop, DJ set or party, Monkey Safari will be sure to touch all scopes of dance culture this 2016 with no signs of deceleration on the horizon.

Their mandate remains the same, sending sunny vibes to make even the darkest dance floors smile.
