Two strangers enter a toilet at a Pan Pot gig, they emerge as friends, and two years later are ready to start showing the city of Brighton and the rest of the world their unique style of dance floor groovers.
Luke and Owen, aka Monica, have been members of the dance floor generation since their late teens. With a musical choice that is sometimes considered to sit just outside what the majority of people in Brighton play, and a love for the Berlin sound, it wasn't long before they were offered their first taste of limelight, when the head honcho of Nightshift Records, Sami Kubu, offered them a slot on her bi-monthly podcast. The podcast was to be released as a Halloween special in 2016. The mix was an emotional and moody eclectic mix of music both Luke and Owen love with groove from start to finish. It was well received by both listeners and Nightshift records themselves and building on their success secured a weekly radio show on Codesouth FM every Monday 20:00-22:00.
Monica were also featured in Decoded Magazine as produced a sublime Guest Mix receiving huge praise from the publisher and peers alike.
Monica have been involved in numerous Berlin-Brighton events to date supporting the likes of Timo Maas, Einmusik, Tiefschwarz, BLANCAh, Daniel Steinberg, John Digweed, Rebekah, Emanuel Satie and many more. The duo also completed a Berlin Mixtapes Guest mix for us too. Listen to it here: https://www.berlin-brighton.com/berlin-mixtapes
2019 also saw the two cofound their very own club night called 'Foucault' showcasing a range of deep, electronic and melodic events calling in on Berlin-Brighton friends Markus Saarländer and Faide on support duties.
