London-based producer/dj John Monkman is the founder of Beesemyer Music. His unparalleled productions are also signed to globally recognised imprints such as Ellum, Anjunadeep, Last Night On Earth, Drumcode, Kompakt, Crosstown Rebels & Get Physical.
Breaking out in 2015, John Monkman seized the attention of the global dance music community with the release of two widely acclaimed summer dance-
floor gems: his remix of Solomon Grey’s ‘Twilight’ (Beatport #1) on Anjunadeep and ‘PHØENIX’ with Pete Tong, released via German label Kompakt. The latter marked the second collaboration between the two, following on from their Suara single ‘The Bumps’, which was remixed by electronic music royalty Moby in 2015. The pair delivered a third instalment together in 2016 with the engrossing ‘Aurora’ on Beesemyer.
Having crafted a signature powerhouse sound that has been strongly endorsed by the likes of Crosstown Rebel’s Damian Lazarus, maestro Kolsch and LNOE boss Sasha, John Monkman has emerged as a much trusted source for supreme dance floor fuel. Renowned for his impeccable quality in the studio and behind the decks, the US-born, UK-bred producer and dj has taken his productions around the world, performing in iconic venues from Brazil’s Warung to Ibiza’s Ushuaia and beyond. This year, he made his debut at two of London’s iconic venues, Fabric and Printworks. After closing out 2018 with his debut appearance on Maceo Plex’s Ellum imprint in the form of the epic ‘Tune In Turn On’ EP, John Monkman has continued asserting his quality in the studio throughout 2019. He was invited to remix a LNOE classic for their 100th release, and release a single groover Pesto Punk on Kompakt. Monkman’s busy summer continued with an appearance on the enigmatic Drumcode, with a remix of Adam Beyer and Green Velvet’s Space Date. To cap things off, a return to Anjunadeep came in May with John’s Komplex EP, a trio of melodic gems.
