Rinse FM’s DJ Monki Starts New Label ‘Zoo Music’

If you like Rinse FM on Saturdays from 4-6pm, you will like Zoo Music.

Lucy ‘Monki’ Monkman explains: ‘I play a lot of new unsigned stuff on the radio that people send me, so why not put them out before anyone else does and provide a platform for these producers.’

The label’s first release will be available from June 11, and is a collaborative effort from Girls Music releasee Zulu and the hotly-tipped TOYC. Both the tracks, ‘Need To Be Said’ and ‘Nothing Borrowed,’ show traits of house and garage and are full of tropical influence. A very promising first release.

Zoo Music will soon after release music from Birmingham’s Don’t Panic, and Monki is set to follow that with a production effort of her own.
