Premiere: Camelphat – Monsters


After having the biggest hits of the summer its sometimes tough to follow it up, but not in Camelphat’s case as they drop their ‘Monsters’ EP on Solardo’s imprint Sola, out on 22nd September, ready to eat up the dancefloor of every good club.

CamelPhat are clearly enjoying a meteoric rise in the house scene since their genesis in 2010. Previous releases The Act, Paradigm, Make em Dance, The Trip, Lizard King and Constellations have had DJ support from a wide spectrum of djs Annie Mac, Carl Cox, Steve Lawler, Dennis Ferrer, Eric Prydz Solomun and Pete Tong, with the list of DJ fans grows longer with every CamelPhat release. And like this EP’s title track itself says: “You’d better believe in Monsters”.

We actually heard our debut transmission at Defected Croatia in the summer and were blow away, we had to grab the lead track ‘Monsters’ for our premiere today, it is as immense and beastly as its title implies: a colossal sound with hefty beats and a build that sends us hurtling through this unstoppable big room track. You’d think the B-side would fade in the shadow of Monsters. Nah. Drop It has an enthralling space-scape vibe, underpinned by a soulful bassline & a vocal hook that that gets you “jumping like a disco” too.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
