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.
