Hello and welcome to my humble Phat Monkey homepage hailing from Wales in the United Kingdom. I have been producing music for a long time under various guises which includes ghost writing for other people. In the distant past I have also been involved on the Dj side of things and decided a couple of years ago to produce and mix the chart topping annual mix series Ibiza Beach Bar Grooveswhich was made available via Beatport, volume one reached chart position 8 followed by volume 2 at chart position 4!! Unfortunately as of December 2017 Beatport no longer support DJ mixes but we are exploring other avenues to bring this popular series back. On the flip side you can expect new music from me in the near future under my moniker ‘Phat Monkey’ which will most likely be of the Techno / Tech House genre. I do not like being held down by any one specific genre of music but I am trying to focus on a clear direction for the ‘Phat Monkey’ moniker. Growing up with such a diverse musical talent around me I developed a taste and respect for all genres of awesome music. If you have any questions feel free to ask me, I am nobody special, just a normal humble approachable laid back guy on a journey through life same as you. All that is left for me to say now is peace love and respect, may your journey lead you to your chosen destination xXx
ETA MID MARCH 2019
UPDATE: VCA is ready, on the legal side of things Steinberg were kind enough to allow me to give reference to Cubase in the description and the developer of VoiceAttack has given the green light. I have programmed in over 200 commands and plan to release a new demonstration video within two weeks time. The next few weeks will now be spent writing a PDF user guide to ensure you all are able to use VCA to its full potential, more info soon….UPDATE 13/02/2019Due to life threatening serious illness with close family there may bea slight delay. VCA is ready but the instructional manual will take sometime along with a way to distribute VCA to customers. I am doing mybest to aim for mid March, sorry for any inconvenience, I am doing mybest to keep on top of everything…..
