MONSTER

MONSTER

Monster
Based in: Poznań, Poland

Last couple of years saw Monster rise to national stardom, conquering parties and festivals across the country with memorable sets. Her meteoric rise was not a surprise – the talented DJ has a decade worth of experience under her belt and an omnivorous taste for euphoric and fun music—be it house, techno, acid, trance, breaks or… Rihanna.

Her career started in the late 00’s at Rozbrat, an anarchist squat and social center in Poznań, Poland. That’s where she started throwing Squat The Electricity nights, working tightly with the local scene, popularising electronic music among activists and activism among electronic music fans. Today, she’s a member of Oramics, a Polish platform supporting women, non-binary and queer people in electronic music. Their actions came to worldwide attention thanks to the Total Solidarity compilation.

In 2018, she won a DJ contest held by Catz ‘n Dogz and performed at their Wooded City Festival in Szczecin. Later that year, she delivered a mix for Violet’s Naive label that was picked up by Pitchfork as one of their mixes of the month to the delight of Philip Sherburne: “this 99-minute set of acid, breakbeats, cascading piano house, electro, and even very early trance is cause to wonder why we haven’t heard of her before.” A recording of her fierce closing party set at Unsound 2019 was featured in Resident Advisor’s mix of the day series as well as in Pitchfork’s best mixes of January 2020. She was immediately asked to record a proper RA mix, the first Polish woman to do so since Magda.

She has performed in clubs all over Poland, and is a resident of Projekt LAB in Poznań. When not DJ-ing, you can catch her running workshops for DJs at feminist events such as International Women’s Day fundraisers, as well as ones hosted by Oramics, and Granko.
