dj monk of rabbit in the moon in kansas city


Kansas City, MO - August 11, 2006 - phocas.net in cooperation with Disco Productions, proudly present the second installment in our concert series that features some of the biggest names in the Dance Music Industry.

August's edition features the infamous DJ Monk. Best known for his early work and collaboration with Confucius in the music collective "Rabbit in the Moon". This will be a rare appearance by one with such a solid a reputation as one of the most innovative artists in the industry.





Monk
Hallucination Recordings
Premier Artist Management
Tampa, FL

Establishing his solo career and running Hallucination Records full time, Monk stays busy remixing world renowned artists like Sting, Limp Bizkit and even Britney Spears. Coupled with his newest audio-visual project "Hallucination on Film", it is easy to see why DJ Monk is in demand all over the world.

In fact, his remixes are taking the Billboard Dance / Club Play charts by storm and charting in Billboard's Top Ten most recently with Cooler Kids "Punk Debutante", Boomkat's "The Wreckoning" and T.A.T.U.'s "All The Things She Said."

As one of the most versatile DJs around, Monk is known for his unique DJ sets ranging from traditional hard bangin' house vs funky breaks style with a touch of drum and bass and Hip Hop to a deeper "Dark Side of The Monk" set that leans toward a darker tech-house meets tribal & disco house style. If Monk can't make yo' booty move, yo' booty must be dead.

Voted in BPM magazine as receiving the "most fan eMail nominations" in the country and one of America's forefather of the Hallucination-Generation, orginator, innovator, guaranteed to rock tha party, Monk continues to freak the funk week in and week out headling shows across the nation, at times appearing with dancer "Skandalous" and MC "Cles One" rockin the house with him side by side.

With a brand new DJ Monk mix CD, original 12" tracks in the not to distant future and the custom live visual "Hallucination on Film", we are very much looking forward to this very special appearance in Kansas City, MO at the Grand Emporium on Friday, August 11, 2006!

Recognizable as Kansas City's most important landmarks of music, it's history goes back as far as most people in Kansas City can remember. Over this time, it has always maintained a solid reputation for showcasing some of the best talent seen in the music industry across nearly every genre. It has only been in the last year, after a complete remodeling, that Dance Music stepped up to the plate at The Grand Emporium, easily complimenting it's already diverse lineup. With good sound, a clean sleek appearance, as well as a bar and lounge area that are out of the way of the dance floor, this is the kind of evolution that has allowed The Grand Emporium to be passed from one generation of dancers to another. Whether it be Blues, Soul or Dance, it has always been the place to get your groove on. More information about the Grand Emporium can be found at their website, kcClubs.com.
