Monkey Safari - all night long
In October, Monkey Safari invited Brazilian DJ and producer Victor Ruiz to their "Odyssey" party at Watergate. This time, the German brothers are coming alone, playing one of their rare and infamous all night long sets.
Monkey Safari can look back on a personal odyssey that’s lasted more than 30 years so far. They have a mutual musical spirit and through good and bad times have only grown closer. As such, the artwork for the recent "odyssey" album and tour reflects that and was made by stitching both artist’s faces together, creating one persona from two individuals. As DJs the pair have played everywhere from Timewarp to Awakenings Festival. They also own their own club, Charles Bronson, in their native Halle, Germany, and have released remixes and original material on top labels like Kompakt, Minus, and John Digweed’s Bedrock. The title of this impressive album reflects the journey the duo had throughout the writing process. It was one that took a long time and went from initially being about writing an album of listening music to evolve into being much more about music for the club and for many different dance floors.
