Strongly endorsed by the likes of Kompakt’s Michael Mayer, Maceo Plex and LNOE boss Sasha, John Monkman’s signature powerhouse sound has seen him feature in multiple Beatport top ten charts, and perform in iconic venues from Brazil’s Warung to Ibiza’s Ushuaia. Out August 2nd, his three-track Anjunadeep return ‘Komplex EP’ is a diverse body of work, demonstrating Monkman’s capacity for both nuanced atmospheres and heavier club cuts.
Opening up is title track ‘Komplex’, a euphoric, driving piece of Melodic Techno filled with envigorating percussive elements and dreamy atmos, which all create a unique dancefloor rammer. London-based singer and long-time Monkman’s collaborator Liz Cass joins in to deliver a splendid vocal performance over a way deeper cut, the elegant and melancholic ‘Mirrors’. The EP is then closed by a genius breakbeat ambient composition, ‘In Between’, a perfect demo of John’s wide-range productive knowledge.
