Dirt Monkey, aka Patrick Megeath, has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds within the Denver, Colorado dubstep scene and has gained international acknowledgement with his punchy and playful sound design. His tracks have gained support and captivated audiences via many pioneers, such as: Skream, Benga, Rusko, Datsik, Excision, A-Trak, Virtual Riot, Anna Lunoe, Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Downlink, Ganga White Night, and Protohype. Dirt Monkey’s Remix of Rusko’s “Woo Boost” has recently hit the world by storm, was released on Subcarbon Records, and to top it all off, is supported by the don himself, Rusko. Although this eclectic music junky enjoys a wide-variety of music, he has gravitated towards the trippy, crisp sounds of IDM and the wonky, high-energy sounds of old school dubstep and strives to fuse the two together.
He has worked with a wide-variety of artists including: DMVU, Space Jesus, Illenium, Party Wave, Run DMT, AMP Live, and Jantsen. Dirt Monkey has performed at a countless number of breathtaking venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, clubs in France, and Beta Nightclub in Denver, CO (where he has held a residency for the last 5 years). Also, for the past four years, he established and ran the record label, Kairos Audio, with the help of co-founder, Jantsen.
In the future, expect this virtuoso to continue carving a niche that does not exist yet in the music scene and stay on the look out for a 5-song EP coming out in Spring 2017 on one of the most reputable labels in the world. Although, Dirt Monkey is extremely versatile to say the least, his true wobbly greatness will continue a movement within clubs, both boutique and world-class venues, and the colorful festival scene.
UK-born and bred DJ and producer Conrank has quickly established himself as one of bass music’s most innovative voices. After spending years as a globe-trotting musician, including an 8 year residency in Shanghai, Conrank settled into his new home base in Los Angeles, CA in early 2017. In just a few short years, Conrank has swiftly earned the reputation of tearing down any dancefloor he plays to, without exception; bringing his melodic yet frenetic brand of dubstep, grime, and drum n’ bass to stages all across the world.
Conrank cut his musical teeth initially as a beat-boxer in London during the creative peak of the UK grime & hip-hop scene. After touring Europe with neighborhood friend and fellow beat-boxer Killa Kela, Conrank switched gears to track production towards the end of the decade; finding his feet as an artist and writing music for commercial campaigns (Levi’s, etc). After spending years as a bedroom laptop producer he finally emerged as a full-fledged DJ in 2010 with his first live performance, wowing a crowd of thousands at London’s infamous ‘Secret Garden Party’.More Information Find Prepaid Parking
