Bio

Continuously pushing his own limits with each project, Dirt Monkey embodies the identity of a forward-thinking artist in every sense. Cutting-edge sound design is the name of Dirt Monkey’s game, delivering a signature sound that solely belongs to him; it’s a reflection of his creative mind that’s constantly in flux.

Dirt Monkey unleashed his first full-length record in 2012, and he’s since delivered countless singles, collaborations, remixes, and more albums over the past decade. 2018 saw the release of his latest album off the acclaimed SubCarbon Records, Rise of the Octopeel. Beyond his singles and EPs released on labels like Deadbeats, Disciple Round Table, Circus Records, and more, Dirt Monkey proves his mettle as an exceptional remixer, too: he’s recently unleashed official remixes for Doctor P, GRiZ, Boogie T, and more. In Dirt Monkey’s world, the music is what matters most — and it shows.

Before making his way into 2020, Dirt Monkey has a few new tricks up his sleeve to round out the year: he’s announced his headlining Primatology World Tour, where he’ll be bringing some of his best friends and talented collaborators on a tour around the world. In July, Dirt Monkey announced the launch of his own record label, 19K. Representing a culture rather than just a new imprint, 19K is built by talented artists with the common goal of celebrating true artistry. With a forward-thinking ethos, 19K vows to cultivate the next generation of experimental electronic music by showcasing the talents of artists both revered and obscure.

Over the past several years, Dirt Monkey has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique
sounds into the Denver dubstep community, and onto the national touring scene. He
finished last year with a strong release schedule: “Wubula” (SubCarbon), “Beef” w/
Boogie T (SubCarbon), and “Wobble Like This EP” (Disciple Round Table), He took
this brisk pace into to a fall tour with Bear Grillz and direct support on a Ganja White
Night tour at the beginning of this year that sold out nearly every date.

As a pioneer in the dubstep and bass music genres, Dirt Monkey has garnered
support from many of his peers: Griz, Rusko, Excision, Snails, Liquid Stranger, A-Trak,
Virtual Riot, Anna Lunoe, Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Downlink, Ganja White Night,
and Protohype. Dirt Monkey’s recent remix of Rusko’s “Woo Boost” (SubCarbon) was
supported by Rusko himself, and his recent “Wubula” album gained wide support
across the festival circuit from broad swaths of well-known DJs.

He has worked and collaborated with a wide-variety of artists such as: Ganja White
Night, DMVU, Illenium, Boogie T, Conrank, Subtronics, Run DMT w Barrington Levy,
and Jantsen. Dirt Monkey has performed at a countless number of breathtaking
venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, clubs in France, and Beta Nightclub in
Denver, CO (where he has held a residency for the last 5 years). Also, for the past four
years, he established and ran the record label, Kairos Audio, before handing it off to
label partner and co-founder, Jantsen Robertson.

Dirt Monkey is fresh off a sold out after party at Buku Music + Arts Project and a
great festival performance at Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival. Now he’s gearing
up for a co-headline tour with Subtronics, “Warp Drive 18”, which will carry him into
confirmed appearances at EDC Las Vegas, Toxic Summer, and Global Dance Festival,
preparing audiences for an Full Length album, an EP, and no less than 5 singles on
deck through the rest of the year on top of a FULL US Fall 2018 Tour!

Dirt Monkey has always striven to fuse the wonky, high-energy sounds of old school
dubstep, and the crisp sounds of EDM. Now, he’s succeeding in bringing that sound
to a global audience.
