437 – Monkey Safari


We aren’t sure what it about Germany that allows the country to produce such a high volume of quality electronic music but there surely must be something to it.  The air? The water? Well, we can neither confirm or deny any theory regarding why the area is such a hotbed of creativity for electronic music but rather revel in Germanic cool. This weeks Podcast sees us head to back to the Fatherland as eclectic duo Monkey Safari serve up an hour long set of selections for your listening pleasure.

Having really hit their stride in the studio, with their many fun and scrupulously produced records earning them a nice little niche within the electronic music environs, the pairing have now set their sights on Ibiza, landing on the White Isle to take over Sankeys for Hommage alongside compatriots Super Flu May 27th, before hosting a hotly anticipated  boat party the day after on the 28th May. With plenty of other exciting developments in the pipeline for 2015 and beyond, the next 12 months look set to be the most exciting of the Monkey’s career. We wish we could tell you more but right now all we’ll say is watch this space!

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
We’d say every single track is an essential part to make the mix what it is in the end and to transport the vibe, but for sure a big favorite is the Jacuzzi Boys’ ‚Lady Lover‘ (Chris Wood / Meat Remix) – thats’s a 100% summer tune!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
…that we just imagined hanging out on the beach with an ice-cooled Cuba Libre in our hands while mixing the podcast for you guys!
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently? 
Time Warp was very impressive we must say!
What have you got coming up? 
After releasing Cranes in January, this summer (in August) we´ll release our next EP on our own imprint Hommage, with some big – and maybe unexpected remixers on board, which we cannot wait to announce 😉 For the rest of the year we´ve got some more cool stuff for the label planned, big releases by other artists of our Hommage-family and of course many more Hommage label nights all over the world. Over the summer months, we’ll be playing a lot of festivals all around Europe, like Awakenings in Amsterdam. End of the year we’ll be touring a lot – North America, South America, Asia and Africa is on the map!

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.
