Known for his diverse array of fast-paced, super-skilled Drum & Bass, halftime, and dubstep – Monty is an artist who needs little introduction. With releases on key labels such as Critical Music, Invisible and Flexout Audio, Monty represents 1985 Music – the cutting-edge label curated and nurtured by Alix Perez. His first release ‘Hold Me Back EP’ in 2017 led the way to a long and fruitful relationship with the imprint. After a string of genre-bending output, he released his debut album ‘Hit The Lights’ in 2021. A landmark release for the Toulouse-based producer and DJ, this long-form listen is a celebration of tempo diversity and underground bass.
“A purveyor of the Toulouse sound, 1985 phenom, and supreme talent. Monty Brimley has quickly established himself to become all of the above – and this couldn’t be more evident than on his debut album, Hit The Lights.” UKF December 2021.
Similar to his production style, Monty’s DJ sets are famously diverse, progressive, and high energy. Flowing through sub-genres smoothly and harmonically while taking the audience on a sonic journey through wonky halftime beats and rollers with the consistent theme of fun. Highlight performances include sets at Let It Roll, Outlook Festival, and Canada’s Shambhala Festival. As a pivotal artist in the underground dance scene, most weekends see Monty touring around Europe’s best clubs – with previous tours completed or penciled around Australia, New Zealand, North America, and beyond.
