New to the roster, enter UK-born, now New Zealand based Maxwell ‘Monika’ Sweeney. The 26-year old started producing about 8 years ago, after discovering his love for the genre at London’s once super-club Matter – courtesy of a Hospitality event. The near perfection in each set he heard, coupled with the sheer love shown by the crowd inspired a young Max to join this buzzing scene. After acquiring a MacBook and picking up a copy of Logic, he got to work at carving out his own sound. With his influences ranging from Machinedrum to Djrum, Om Unit to Stray the Brit-turned-Kiwi is truly only getting started in his production career.
As well as producing DnB, Max also dabbles in house production under the alias Jesse Bullitt. The multitalented individual eventually landed a track on Med School’s New Blood 014 a few years back, after a string of solid releases on Ingredients Records. Having taken a bit of a break (pun intended) from the Drum & Bass scene over the past year or two, we’re pleased to have released his debut single on Soulvent in June!
