As with Volume I, Monki’s new mixtape features a series of exciting cross-genre collaborations bringing together the likes of grime poster boy Preditah with Dirtybird duo Cause & Affect, Hot Chip synth wizard turned 2 Bear Joe Goddard with Black Butter stalwart Kidnap Kid and British soul powerhouse Moko.
The mixtape is a continuation of a long running relationship between Red Bull Studios and Monki, who has become something of a regular at the London Bridge HQ over the years as she’s grown from humble Rinse FM intern to BBC Radio 1 mainstay, championing new electronic talent through as part of the respected In New DJs We Trust roster. A long-standing Annie Mac Presents resident, Monki is also an increasingly regular fixture across clubs and festivals the world over.
There will be a launch party on Thursday 21 August at the Birthdays basement in Dalston featuring sets from Monki, Murlo, Mella Dee, Thefft, Zulu B2B TOYC. Entry is free.
