Neil Chatwin aka BassMonkee is a 27 year old DJ/Producer based in the Midlands. He started mixing 5 years ago, having been into dance music since the age of 13, he decided to give it a try and was soon hooked.
His style is tough, dirty house/electro with big basslines that are always guaranteed to rock the floor. His ability to read a crowd is second to none, with an adaptable approach to mixing, he always leaves the club wanting more.
BassMonkee started out as Neil.C playing Trance and Hardhouse in bars and small clubs around the Midlands. It was at this time that Neil and a friend started Sweet, a Leicester based Hardhouse night. Neil still co-promotes Sweet at present but Sweet now focus on underground outdoor parties that cater in everything from Hardcore to Dirty House.
In 2005 Neil secured a residency at the legendary Canal Club in Wolverhampton, playing and promoting nights such as Liquid, Liquid Rebellion, Adrenaline and Slinky.
All the while experimenting with new styles of music Neil decided to leave behind Hardhouse and entered the Deuce DJ competition in the summer of 05 playing bassline house. After sailing through the heats and storming the Stourport bar he earned a place in the final. The final saw tough competition and Neil secured second place.
Neil continues to play bassline house for Midlands Underground, (a well established Garage and Drum and Bass night) having played numerous gigs for this night including, a 1000 year old Abbey, outdoor events, and various clubs.
His love for the tough and funky basslines has led him to dirty electro house which is continuing to earn him sets and a following across the U.K and Europe.
In September 2006 BassMonkee was made resident for Funk Deluxe. Since then BassMonkee has played at events such as Party Proactive, Polysexual, Sundissential, Terminal, Contagious, Wildchild, Gatecrasher, Frantic, Nu Religion, Insekt, Goodgreef and many more, including a tour in Ibiza.
