Barcelona based artist Monile has been firmly on our radar for some time. With her cropping up on more and more excellent lineup and releases it is only a matter of time before she starts flooding everybody else’s peripheral. What gives her such an edge is her adaptability and this can only come as a result of hard work, a thirst for music of all varieties, and the skills to show up when it is her time to shine. Being based in Barcelona gives her an immediate opportunity to do this on a regular basis and she will shortly be showing what she is capable of for them’s first Barcelona resident event at Atlantic Club. She will be taking her place alongside some of minimal’s biggest names while in Paris she will be moving in a slightly different avenue where she will be playing alongside Traumer. These skills and deft ability to shift between sounds can also be seen on her recent InSession mix for us.
Her skills on the decks is matched only by her ability in the studio and with a penchant for the darker side of bass fuelled house music. This can be found on ‘Play’ for MAAI Records and her recent dark banger for The White Wagons Records. It is this heads down approach to house that we find on her addition to our Free Download series. ‘Belle’s’ is a punchy slab of tech that has just the right amount of day light that infiltrates the mix. An upfront bassline is propped up by the repeating conga motif and broken drum patterns nicely. The broken theme is expanded upon with the inclusion of a piano break in a state of disrepair but it works an absolute treat. The detuned air of ‘Belle’s’ gives a secret weapon vibe here that will surely standout in many different types of sets.
