Monchhichi Boys - (Lokee, Picknik Records)
Were born in early 2008 after the request of playing together at the opening party of the now infamous Genau.25 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Having done things on their own, they now found each other in the city of London and decided to synergise. This was so successful that they became Genau's residents and played at all the numerous random parties through the year alongside Dj's such as Kornel Kovac, Staffan Linzatti, Daniel Steinberg aka Harry Axt, Beaner from Bar25 & Dj Peak to name a few. Throughout the year, they have performed gigs in different countries, like Spain and Germany. In London, they are also residents at the Codekontrol Crew, Minimal Lounge… Having introduced themselves with a charismatic set at one of London's most authentic warehouse parties, Lo*Kee's Sunday Special, the Monchhichi Boys have also been requested as their residents. The boys were more than delighted to be a part of this hedonistic happening, which occurs every second Sunday at The Candy Factory. Currently it's really kicking off for them after CJ Gulli, head honcho at Codekontrol Crew requested their management of the brand new created sub label. Hence forth, Picknik Recordings was emerged and the boys are excited about what to come with a hectic schedule from various labels that will keep them busy in the production studio. While producing they want to catch the feeling from their sets, bursting positive energi with a bohemian beat. Throughout their sets, they captivate the crowd with a hypnotic groove. If you are lucky, a sudden transpiration of an eccentric techno tune appears. After that, you can expect them to drop anything: from cheesy house to an extract from buddha bar or a strange ethnic groove. Although their main thing is to keep the beat steady and full of rolling bass lines, cut up vocals, shuffled hi hats and irregular percussions for an unbelievable Funky-Minimal set.
