Monte Carlo (aka DJ Monte Carlo; Monte Carlo, DJ; DJMC; MCDJ) originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, is a California based professional musician, producer, and DJ.
“The original” DJ Monte Carlo has played for a multitude of crowds in venues and at private events over the years. Best known for his amazingly intuitive on-the-fly crowd reads – knowing that perfect time when the music and the crowd needs to be taken to that next level – he has the ability to incorporate all genre-bending styles of music into his DJ sets. From the laid back styles of Neo-Jazzy-Funk to the hard hitting Electro-House music anthems – a virtual walking rolodex of music knowledge – his sound takes you on a sonic journey through the retronic sounds of yesteryear onto sci-fi future funkiness of music’s future classics.
