MONIQUE BINGHAM - Live
Sam "The Man" Burns
BOOGIE DOWN, is a dance party concert featuring a live DC performance by NY's own soul-jazz music songstress....MONIQUE BINGHAM. Inviting all music lovers for a full evening of dancefloor soul/funk/disco/jazz and electronica music programmed by DJs Sam "The Man" Burns & Tee Alford.
MONIQUE BINGHAM, has been responsible for some of the most poignant, soulful jazz infused house music of the past 15 years. Her career began with the acid jazz band Abstract Truth in 1995 after an impromptu session at Francois K's legendary Axis studios. The first single,"Get Another Plan" received international critical acclaim and was picked up by Gilles Peterson for his UK imprint, Talkin Loud in ‘96.
The follow up single "We Had a Thing”, penned and performed by Monique is an indisputable soulful house classic due in large part to Matthias “Matty” Heilbronn's infectious Body & Soul remix. Once injected into the veins of the underground, Ms. Bingham's penchant for nuanced and painstakingly crafted lyrics put her in a class by herself.
In addition to her work with Abstract Truth she went on to solo performances with Blue Six ("Pure"), Sir Piers ("Don't You Love Me"), Studio Apartment ("Flight"), and Liquid People ("Glance Look Stare"). She has also worked with some of the house scene's most respected dj/producers: Quentin Harris ("Poor People", "You Can't Have New York"), Kerri Chandler ("In the Morning"), and DJ Yass/Okada Taxi ("Come Live with Me") just to name a few. Her writing brought her to the attention of legendary dj/producer Jellybean Benitez who signed her to his NYC publishing house.
Her song"Kissing Strangers" with veteran producer Ralf Gum on his GOGO label was Traxsource.com's #1 most downloaded song of 2008. In 2009 and 2010 she released songs with Baltimore's Karizma, and Osunlade ("Good Morning") as well as Phil Asher and Bah Samba ("Run"). In 2011, Monique completed her first self-produced single released on her own imprint Biggasounds! You.Me.World was received with glowing reviews and championed by veteran taste makers Danny Krivit, DJ Spinna and Black Coffee worldwide. (All of which have rocked audiences in DC in 2011).
This year we look forward to hearing the new single "Do It" and more new chart toppers from Ms. Bingham in 2012! Welcome her back to Washington, DC for the first time in many years....
