*”Lucy Monkman aka Monki is a tastemaker for the bass generation. Following in the bloodline of fellow radio DJ’s Annie Mac and Benji B, she has taken her technical and energetic sets from the airwaves into the club with her Monki & Friends night at fabric, where she’s been able to champion young producers and strengthen her position as a key player in the underground.
Having recently stood in for Benji on his esteemed late night radio show, the opening two tracks she played, Pride by Adesse Versions and Shutdown by Skepta, perfectly outline her outlook as a DJ – an unpretentious approach to genre-mingling where she is happy to play banger after banger.
She follows the same path in her FabricLive mix, with tracks by Melé, Floorplan and FCL standing side by side. In celebration of the mix and its launch party at fabric on Friday 1st May, Monki has taken time out to select her 5 favourite rave tracks. Stick these on some speakers that a decent amount of bass. They’ll need it.”*
