The Cardiff DJ comes to Glasgow
Mixed Bizness features Boom Monk Ben upstairs in the Art School every Thursday, mixing all manner of electronic music with heavy bass. This month he has Cardiff’s DJ Moneyshot for company. An official DJ for Solid Steel Radio, Moneyshot has previously won the station’s ‘Mix of the Year’ competition after unearthing great tunes from much-maligned acts like Billy Joel, The Eagles and even Bruce Forsythe. He describes his style as, ‘frantic but fluid. Plenty of quick mixes and acapellas flying over loops. My background is hip hop, but the tunes are drawn from every far-flung corner of the record crate.’
Moneyshot says the highlight of a recent tour in Australia was ‘playing a full moon party to the backdrop of a beach paradise.’ While such a setting will elude him in Glasgow, there’s no doubt he will fit in at Mixed Bizness. ‘I’m all over Profisee’s “Foolz Thinking” single, the reggae stylings of Mungo’s Hi-Fi, a guy from Brisbane called Slynk and Bristol’s favourite son, Parker,’ he says.
Mixed Bizness resident, Boom Monk Ben, sums up the booking: ‘We’ve been trying for so long to get Moneyshot up to Glasgow. His sound and style are perfect for what we do and we can’t wait to have him rock ours, yours and everyone else’s socks off.’
