DJ Monk-One has been a staple on the NYC/ international DJ scene for quite some time. With an expansive record collection, writing gigs (the man knows his music), record label, and all around baller achievements in his career, Monk Uno shows no signs of slowing down. I was lucky enough to catch him spin over the past few years, and even luckier to have him involved in this Big Ups series. I’ve always been a fan of the man called Andrew Mason, and admit it, you are too. When not cutting up doubles of Disco breaks, you can find him steering the ship over at the Names You Can Trust label or playing every other Saturday night at Von in NYC. A journeyman DJ like Moochie Norris was in the NBA, I am fortunate to have this man grace the Big Ups stage this week. Enjoy Monk-One everyone.
