SUSSED. are back with a big line up which brings Monki & Friends Aswell as SUSSED. residents to Liverpool for their first birthday show at NST
This show sold out last time in Liverpool so tickets will be flying out for this one.
With a BBC Radio 1 show, her own party brand and a record label, Monki
presides over a mini empire. In the seven years since she first got involved in
the electronic music business, she has risen to every challenge with aplomb,
working her way up from an intern at Rinse FM to become an influential
international selector, with gigs across Britain and beyond. Monki has
appeared at many of the UK’s most iconic venues as well as commanding the
big stage at festivals on a regular basis. A consistent force within the
electronic music scene, Monki operates in a class of her own.
In her youth, Monki (real name Lucy Monkman) was fascinated with pirate
radio. Her love of music and radio led to two pivotal work placements that set
her on her current path; the first was at revolutionary station Radio Jackie
and, while there, she landed an internship with legendary London
broadcaster, Rinse FM . After a year of solid graft behind the scenes, she was
offered a Thursday morning slot, which she made her own. Her prowess as a
presenter and DJ earned her a promotion to a prime time Saturday slot, and
from there the only way was up…
After studying at world-renowned music school Point Blank , Monki’s destiny
was assured, music became her true calling. The Rinse FM role gave her an
abundance of experience and led to the next phase of her broadcasting
career, a monthly show on Radio 1 ’s for In New DJs We Trust which led to a
weekly slot on 1Xtra . After a couple of years on the station, she got the call up
to join Radio 1 and now hosts a weekly show every Sunday night from 1-4am.
As a member of the BBC station’s hugely influential team of electronic music
tastemakers, Monki channels her knowledge and experience into creating a
show that educates and entertains its listeners in equal measure. She now
embarks on daily forages for brand new music, working tirelessly to uncover
fresh jams to play to her dedicated listeners during the three-hour long show.
Some of the hottest young talent to spring out of the Newcastle house hotbed has got to be Elliot
Adamson, with support and critical acclaim from industry giants such as Eats Everything, Jackmaster,
Skream and Patrick Topping this young artist has a huge future ahead of him. Having already gained
notoriety with remixes of The Streets and Dizzie Rascal and with a wealth of unreleased original material,
he is set to have a huge summer with releases on the mighty Edible in the works, releases already on
Viva Music and Troupe Records, and his own vinyl imprint Secondhand Jewellery in the works.
These days, the way artists promote themselves and their music is key and the digital age can be pretty
unforgiving if they don't do things right. Elliot Adamson is someone who seems to have found the perfect
formula in terms of his profile and his music. The 21-year-old has been rumbling away for a few years
now but the last 12 months has been somewhat explosive for the outspoken young gun.
