New Monochrome Single/ Disco Lights Remixes and Live Live Live!

October 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

Inspired by Bristolian Trip Hop and the works of John Barry, the sound of Monochrome combines a mixture of cinematic orchestration and laid-back beats to create a truly unique electronic soundscape.

The Monochrome sound was first crafted by Ian Carten over a decade ago, through remix collaborations with Veba (Rae & Christian, Groove Armada) and Alice Perera (Smith & Mighty).This year has already been busy for Monochrome, having provided remixes for several artists on the Jack To Phono label including Tom Eno, Ring Ring Rouge, and Bird.

Now making a welcome return to the studio engine room, the Reflections E.P. will be released in November  12th on Jack to Phono.
