First Listen: Moniker – ‘Groove Only’ (Dawn State)

Moniker is a collaborative project between Forest Drive West and Tim Gee that explores the deeper shades of techno.

With appearances on Emmanuel’s label ARTS and Unconditional Music, Moniker’s latest record for new Bristol label Dawn State arrives in the form of two original track (three on the Vinyl edition) and a remix from Livity Sound man Peverelist.

The label’s ethos is said to be inspired by “personal experiences of encountering the Sublime amidst chaos, often taking place in the early hours of the morning”. With both Forest Drive West and Tim Gee often found DJing well past the crack of dawn throughout the Capital’s rave spots, it seems fitting that they’ve been chosen to bring the Bristol imprint to life.

Premiering the record’s title cut, ‘Groove Only’, Moniker build club tension through punchy percussion and intricate layers of starburst pads. Hear in full below.

DS001 is out September 30 on Dawn State.
