Simon Kidzoo & Monoky Team Up For ‘Balanca’ on NONSTOP


Scoring releases on Toolroom, Repopulate Mars, South Of Saturn, Saved and more combined last year. Rising talents Simon Kidzoo and Monoky now join forces for a two-track weapon ‘Balanca’ on Piero Pirupa’s NONSTOP label.

Continuing his success into 2021, Simon Kidzoo has had a jam-packed year of releases. Most recently, he rounded off 2020 with his Weird Chant EP alongside The Deepshakerz on Kittball Records following their debut collab ‘Shamanize’ on Toolroom.

Also scoring multiple solo releases on the likes of  Toolroom, Under No Illusion, Saved, South Of Saturn and more last year, Simon has been firmly engraving his name on the scene. With additional collabs over the years alongside Kideko, Havoc & Lawn, Elliot Fitch and more, his fresh pairing with Monoky is destined to skyrocket.

Also landing a mighty release schedule last year with releases on Saved, South Of Saturn, Club Sweat, Nervous Records, Repopulate Mars and more, Monoky has been making waves in recent months. Continuing this energy for the new year, Simon Kidzoo and Monoky are certainly a force to be reckoned with.

Unleashing their ‘Balanca’ EP on NONSTOP, the pair blend riding basslines and prominent percussion amongst lazer hooks and hypnotic vocals whilst ‘Virunga’ delves into tribal territories with vocal chants and grooving conga style drums. A quality EP bound for tastemaker appeal, Simon Kidzoo and Monoky are set for another exciting year ahead.

We premiere ‘Virunga’ on Data Transmission for you today, check it out and grab it on Beatport.

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.
