In addition to this exclusive mix, the guys were also nice enough to answer five burning questions we had about them and their music:
1. Tell us about your artist name.
Nothing special, two brothers sitting in a pub brainstorming for the name of their upcoming music project. The one recalls his crazy adventures travelling from Namibia to Tanzania in a 1966 Land Rover and proposes ´Safari´. The other, who at the time was working in an ape sanctuary in a village close to the Polish border, comes up with with ´Monkey´ ......Monkey Safari was born.
2. Describe your sound.
Genre hopping, cross-pollinating house music
3. Who are your musical heroes?
The Doors, Sigur Ros, Fatboy Slim, Gangstarr, Guns N´ Roses
4. What is each of your musical guilty pleasures?
Our absolute (not so guilty) pleasure is playing very long, 10 hours +, DJ sets and bring the crowd on an ecstatic Monkey Safari
5. When can we expect Monkey Safari to return to the U.S.?
After having played our first and very successful USA tour end of 2014, hitting the likes of Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington among others, we are now really eager to be back in the US! And it seems like the stars are aligning for the second half of 2015. Stay tuned ;)
