Alias/Collaboration: RABBIT IN THE MOON

From small dark clubs to massive outdoor festivals, always turning it out – it is here where you, the subterranean public may encounter The Monk…… the Mack-Of-All-Trades, dj/producer/artist and overall hustler of culture. Banging out a soundtrack of underground party music that jumps from hard house and breaks to slamming disco-tech, and twisted techno, to drum and bass rinse-outs, the dreadlocked Monk punishes the crossfader as he works one record against another in a style that owes more to hip hop than to conventional club DJ’ing.

As one of the Founders of Rabbit in the Moon, Pimp Juice and Hallucination Records, Monk is a corner stone of the Southeastern U.S. Scene and has established himself as a devoted player in the Electronic Music Industry worldwide. Best known for his early work and collaboration with Confucius in the collective “Rabbit In The Moon” and as the opening dj to the RITM live show for over a decade (‘92-2002), Monk is breaking new ground with several new innovative audio-visual projects. Now establishing a solo career and running Hallucination full time, Monk keeps busy remixing world renowned artists like Sting, Limp Bizkit, and Britney Spears. Constantly in demand, his remixes are taking the Billboard Dance / Club Play charts by storm, and charting in BILLBOARDSTOP TEN most recently with Cooler Kids “Punk Debutante”, Boomkat’s “The Wreckoning”, and T.A.T.U.’s “All The Things She Said.”

One of the most versatile djs around, Monk is known for his unique dj sets ranging from his traditional hardbangin’ house vs funky breaks style with a touch of drum & bass & hip hop, to a deeper “Dark Side Of The Monk” set that leans toward a darker tech-house meets tribal & disco house style. If Monk can’t make yo’ booty move, yo’ booty must be dead. Voted in BPM magazine as receiving the “most fan email nominations” in the country and one of Americas Favorite DJs – March 2003, Monk has forged his place in the underground dance community. A forefather of the Hallucination-Generation, originator, innovator, guaranteed to rock tha party, Monk continues to freak the funk week in & week out headlining shows across the nation.

*Look out for a brand new DJ MONK mix cd and original 12" tracks in the not to distant future. Check out the custom live visual mayhem by Hallucination On Film at all Monk shows, and on special occasions see his dancer “Skandalous” and M.C. “Cles One” rock the party with him side by side.
