WHO IS MONTY?
Born João Rodrigues, aka Monty, WHO IS MONTY? is a DJ, Producer, Musician, Illustrator and Designer.
Monty started to have contact with the music world early, when he was only 5 years old, by taking piano lessons, moving on to guitar and, later on his 14's, to the drums.
Only on the 2000's he started to get some interest in Electronic music, starting to like Drum&Bass and Midget/Dirty Electro. In 2005 he started to try DJing, unsuccessful due to lack of knoledge, technics and gear.
In 2007 he gave his first steps in Design, starting to make some flyers for local Bars, Pubs and Nightclubs.
Between 2007 and 2010, Monty developed his Design and Music knoledge, studying new Design, Producing and DJing technics.
In 2011 he started the project TOXITEK, as a DJ and Producer, wich grew up fast, being the first Portuguese DJ to only use crazy midi controllers like Percussa Audiocubes and Novation Launchpad on his live performances. In that same year, he was the winner of "PORTORIO 10 Years of Underground Music" and "EARSOUND&SEBASTIANAS | DRUM&BASS w/ CRISSY CRISS".
During 2012, Monty started to think about moving for something more professional and serious, so the idea of closing TOXITEK Project and start something new popped up, because TOXITEK Project was putting a side Design and Illustration and wasn't a name who Monty could identify himself with.
And that's when WHO IS MONTY? appeared on the scene.
WHO IS MONTY? Project intentions are to combine Monty's Music and Design works in a single project!
His music style is based on filthy basses, powerfull drops and crazy synths, loving Dubstep, Drumstep, Drum&Bass and Trap Music.
While as a designer, his style is based on Illustrations, Lettering and Vectorial works.
