The event organising is a harsh and cruel world, a dark and twisted jungle of marketing, pr, bureaucracy, social mingling, back scratching and money wasting. It's no comes to no surprise that not many make it and that only the dedicated few strive and make a name for themselves. This is the happy case with Dario Damerini, an italian promoter-turned-producer who passed the gauntlet in his hometown of Bologna by organising events and radio broadcastings and since 2003 has moved to Barcelona where he continued to delve deeper into the alternative events scene of art galleries and warehouses parties.
By summer 2013 he gathered enough experience and following in Barcelona's revered clubbing scene that he and his partners-in-crime Alfonso and Dan decided it was time to launch their own record label and agency. Monkey Bar Records takes it's name from their unique parties characterised by an unconventional approach to venue selection and a penchant for house and techno music history and legacy. Their past guests include some of the most prolific names in the scene like Axel Boman, Brawther, Dixon, Henrik Schwarz, Jeff Mills, Jus-Ed, Kyle Hall, Marcel Dettmann, Mike Huckaby, Shaun Reeves, Tama Sumo, Wbeeza and loads more. January 2014 sees Monkey Bar's second release and Dadame's debut on the label which is, in fact, his first ever EP released so far. 'Escape' comes on limited edition grey marbled vinyl and is comprised of three original tracks and a trademark Fred P. reshape. The sound is warm and deep, the vibes are smooth and soulful and the feeling is bliss.
