It is designed to get you dancing and keep you locked in the groove for hours on end. It’s about building a mood and moving you with invention and unexpected twists and turns that all tell a story.
After a decade promoting and being resident at one of Leeds’ finest underground parties, Ray Mono stepped out of the shadows a few years ago to become a real mainstay of the scene. That party, Mono_Cult, was inspired by endless seasons in Ibiza, specifically the afterparty carry-ons at DC10 and Cocoon. They gave him a fine understanding of what it takes to work a crowd at many different times in the day, and now armed with that knowledge he is serving up his own unique take on house and tech in booths across Europe.
