  1. EPOCH
  2. XAILO

UK talent John Monkman is the next to make his mark on Crosstown Rebel sub-label Rebellion, with the rapturous two tracker EPOCH.

“EPOCH began its journey after a recent show in Goa, India. I wanted the track to almost tare itself apart, forever pushing forward carving out new sonic landscapes. XAILO is comprised of layer upon layer of syncopated xylophone, bells and string section held together with a haunting Icelandic vocal I recorded in London.” – John Monkman

John Monkman shot firmly into the limelight in 2015 with his collaboration with Pete Tong, plus a remix of Solomon Grey’s Twilight, which topped the Beatport charts reaching #1. Monkman has released music on some the world’s biggest and most cutting-edge labels including Kompakt, Crosstown Rebels and Get Physical, which have all received high critical acclaim and support across the board. 2016 also saw him launch his own label Beesemyer Music.

2017 will be a standout year for Monkman, with music already signed to Rebellion, Crosstown Rebels, Noir and the fourth collaboration with Pete Tong in the pipeline. Expect to see big things from this London-based artist.
