The one constant throughout the life of Tanner Ross is music, since being raised in New Jersey in a family environment heavily influenced by music new and old, to his current status as a passionate and driven DJ and producer.
In High School he found himself in numerous bands playing everything from funk to punk but it was after progressing to study synthesizers and production at Bostons renowned Berklee College Of Music that things fell into place. Captivated by underground electronic music, his own productions were soon being released on labels such as Dirty Bird, Freerange, Airdrop and Culprit and this naturally led him into DJing, where he met now regular collaborators Soul Clap, and his journey became clear.
Fresh out of college, with various musical projects, Tanner set out on a musical mission across the States and beyond, to such meccas of dance music as London's Fabric, and Berlin's Watergate.. With his eyes wide open and finger on the pulse he was soon forming part of a Boston supergroup SECT alongside Soul Clap. Not only is the supergroup's album a near and anticipated prospect, Tanners solo career is taking off with releases due in early 2011 on !K7, Double Standard, No 19, and the biggest coup of them all, a solo album is in the works, to be released later this year on none other than Wolf + Lamb. Its quite clear Tanners musical trail blazing is set to continue much further
In the year 1990 Nick Monaco was conceived by two passionate lovebirds in the mystical depths of the Grand Canyon, it was known then that this boy was destined to make magic himself. Nick is a 90's baby from Northern California’s Bay Area. He likes long walks on the beach, appreciates sunshine, bass and abides by his personal philosophy: the weirder, the funkier, the better.
Rocking house parties is how Nick spent most weekends in his not so distant adolescence. Thank G-O-D for out of town parents! While his peers fussed over iPod playlists, Monaco busted in with crates of wax and brought down the spot, learning to win the crowds in true school style.
As a freshman in high school, Monaco was obsessed with turntablism and anything with the words Hip and Hop in it. Locking himself in his bedroom with his decks he scratched his fingers numb for more than 5 hours a day. Practice seemed to make perfect as he was soon sought after for his innovative scratches by the all-time extraterrestrial DJ Qbert who asked for Monaco's contribution for the instructional glossary “Scratchlopedia Breaktannica.” (Available online!)
Nick will tell you himself, he is as much influenced by Deee-Lite as he is by Elliot Smith and you can really hear it in his wide and eclectic musical tastes. The Soul Clap boys would agree. They received a demo from Monaco in 2011, which featured "Set the Table," and were blown away by its quirkiness, innocence, and originality. Since then they have adopted him as a part of the Soul Clap family and have saved a seat for him on the mothership, Soul Clap Records.
Claude VonStroke over in the offices of Dirty Bird Records has also taken a shining to Monaco. When Nick kicked off 2012 with "Long Kiss Goodnight (Soul Clap Edit)," it was signed to Dirtybird's "Hatched" compilation; a meaningful gesture electing him to represent the future of his native Bay Area. Currently Nick Monaco is making his transition from big bass to deeper, emotional, and more musical explorations, a sign of maturity and growth, the fruit of which we are soon to taste.http://www.monarchsf.com
