Opposite Sex

Nick Monaco




Soul Clap Records signee Nick Monaco takes us on a low-slung, funky journey for the latest Clash DJ podcast.

Firmly established as part of the Soul Clap family as the duo begin charting releases on their new label, San Franciscan DJ and producer Nick Monaco’s heady electronic funk – at times reminiscent of Jimmy Edgar – also caught the attention of Claude VonStroke last year, who signed one of his tracks to a Dirtybird ‘Hatched’ comp.

Monaco is creative but not precious in his music tastes, as his Clash mix demonstrates. There’s a Happy Mondays remix, a Busta Rhymes acapella (shedding light on his hip hop background) and Cameo’s nostalgic eighties funk journey, ‘Single Life’, sitting next to underground psyche-funkist Architeq, garage-house duo Maribou State, hip house act Wolf + Lamb, and plenty of Monaco’s own – very strong – tracks. It’s an upfront, undeniable mix, injected with soul and passion. Keep an eye out for Monaco’s rise.

Nick Monaco’s ‘Naked Is My Nature’ EP is out in February on Soul Clap Records.
