-- BIO --
The most club swarms usually receive Sören Bodner aka Monkey Maffia as half
of the DJ-duo, which for 17 years brought the most eclectic exaltations to the
dancers of the world. The Wighnom-y-lotion of classy techno is History!
One is the magic number, twice – a man to a twin–sized bed is the custom. As
an operator of the Freude am Tanzen/Musikkrause workshop and record store
founder (Fatplastics) he loves the luminosity of the coarse and fevered dance
music in every cubic centimeter of his soul. Vinyl is his daily bread, what pumps
in his veins. Monkey belongs to the early 90’s as one of the tireless torch carriers whom bass drums provided the pace for his free spirit-sidekick the most
club abstract. Peppered with a grotesque, lovely madness with a wink of the eye
Essentially he is an anarchistic selector with a sharp sense for the particular
and distinguished note of a genre which has no name. Drilling through with his
genre straddling style the borders of house and techno. Thereby he detected the
often strict formalism of many a dancefloor with a joyful stringency for surprise pickled with intensity with a dash of dramatics. Sounds seasoned as a real
beat cuisine. Sometimes he seduces soft and sensitive – allowing the soul of this
millennium to come on, and then he comes with a slap on the posterior.
Monkey Maffia – A real cosmopolitan with a deep love for his home, a gentleman
in a bear suit, and a free thinker as opposed to a drone is known as one of the
most creative distribution centers of electronic music. Explosiveness bound together with a deepness as his modus operandi. Tirelessly he spins on the controllers as if they were wheels, thereby a determined focus on the dancefloor is
brought forth which is then unfolded. With an ardor, the warmth can be heard as
a thread through his interpreted design majesty. A richness of ideas yes, obsessive compulsive no – here the life is lived, not compelled!
