So, we made it - ‘10 Years Of Monotonik - The Mix’ is testament to that. It’s hard to believe that it was in early 1996 that we first started up our net.label Mono - initially as a .MOD-only label, since this was before the days of MP3s (and, indeed, of very wide use of the Internet.) What a long way we’ve come since then.
So many people deserve thanks for helping us keep on keeping on - from Tommy (Support.nl admin) through stalwart Monotonik releasers such as Vim! and Lackluster, and more recent supporters like Ossi (Planet Boelex). I’d like to thank my family and my wife Holly for giving me the inspiration to continue Mono, but most of all, it’s the Monotonik artists - you’re the label, not me, and it would be nothing without you.
It’s hard to estimate exactly, but millions of music tracks from hundreds of Monotonik artists have been downloaded in the last ten years, and thus, we commissioned a special mix from Christopher ‘Whalefish’ Whaley to honor some of our favorite Mono artists and moments. Here’s the full tracklisting (and there’s some danger of a part 2 mix, since we had to leave so much good stuff out, btw):
- bliss - life on the rooftop
- secede - seafold
- planet boelex - paprikas from deep
- vim! - whirlwind snooker
- braces tower - king of rock
- ramone - back to the oldskool
- super science - sometimes we’re happy
- whiskas - as in cockroach
- dreamfish - twisted riddim
- fun tourist - ddd
- beak - amoral mayor earwig
- twilight - crystal rain
- distance/lackluster - starcell u.k.
- aleksi virta - outer edge intro
- thug - obatem by night
- jiva - sous l’eau au pied
- luminfire - bananadittydub
- esem - thinmute
- sense - icy l tap
- sleepy town manufacture - lain say you care
- grandma - strawberry rhubarb oppai
- transient - trashybin
- idmonster - the force may be with you
Spread the mix, and we love you all.
