Samu debuts in Monog Records with the beautifully crafted Doop Ba EP
Samu debuts on Monog with the fantastic Doop Ba EP which features a stellar remix from the legendary Patrick Zigon. Passionate about music since a child, the influences of funk, metal, hip-hop, jazz and breaks are present in his productions. But it’s techno that constitutes a fundamental piece of his initial works. In 2008 he realized one of his dreams, teaming up as a producer and head of management for the label Novo Music together with his friend Leix. The quality productions and the great feedback from several DJ’s and artists soon boosted the business, with a need to expand over frontiers. His productions have been supported by many, including Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Marco Carola, Josh Wink, Dubfire, Kerri Chandler and Maceo Plex to just to name a few.
Doop Ba is a sassy, funky, groovy infectious slice that will definitely force some moves out on the floors. The track is layered with a cacophony of quirky sounds over a solid breaks drum arrangement and punchy bassline which is the driving force of the dynamic groove. Huge chord stabs, jazzy vocals and keys all make for a unique sound that will definitely grab a lot of attention.
The original mix of Tell To Mama intros with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat combi. An electrifying pulsing bass note fades in as deep rumbling percussions add an extra low end flavour. Metallic sounds combine with a squelchy bassline as cool vocals and subtle funky riffs come through. A mesmerizing break reveals sublime cosmic pads which adds a bit of spice to the groove. A top notch cut that will not disappoint.
On remix duties we welcome Patrick Zigon for his debut appearance on Monog with a superb remix on Tell To Mama. Patrick Zigon is an artist in the truest sense of the word paying extra attention to sound design and atmospheres in his club tracks so that they have something to express rather than just working on the dance floor. He has countless trademark releases and remixes on labels such as Cocoon and Highgrade. He’s played Gigs at legendary German clubs like Panoramabar, Tresor & Kater and has held a long-term residency at Climax Institutes, Stuttgart as well as intense touring all over the planet. Over the years he has remixed the likes of Steve Lawler, Guy Gerber & Shlomi Aber, Gregor Tresher, Reboot, Gui Boratto, Terranova, Ramon Tapia, David K and Guy J. His own label – Biotop Label – launched in 2012 and focuses on all forms of electronic music. A huge influential artist on the music scene, we are delighted to have him on board. Here the remix intros with a very nice bassy kick drum and shuffling hi hat sequence. In the background we find surreal atmospheres made up of intriguing pads and a mesmeric synth. A powerful pulsing bassline delivers a deep and groovy vibe which complements the magical scene created by the myriad of pads and keys. Top notch stuff from this guy that will not disappoint.

Monog Records is a music label based in Berlin, which aims to create a unique connection with it’s artists and their music. Each relationship we have with our artists is treasured as much as the last. We want to be there for all occasions by connecting promising and established artists, building the ground, supporting each other and sharing our love as a family alike.
Our name comes from the word “Monogamy”, the state of having only one partner at any one time. In many cases, this word is used to refer specifically to marital monogamy and this is what we are about. We define Monogamy not as a death sentence but as an idea of sharing the same path together. Monog Records seeks to refine the concept and turn it into a “Musical Monogamy”: two individuals/parties with one shared music soul.
The owl is our mascot, our guide, our loyal friend. This monogamous night hunter is a symbol of wisdom and mystic force. Since we can’t avoid how many things we have in common, it has become the symbol of our label.
Monog Records was created in 2010 by Joal and re-launched in 2017 by Bruno Otranto.
Monog does not follow any Electronic music trend. What matters to us is being able to support our artists by accepting who they are, which seeds they sowed in the past to get them where they are and that they have the opportunity to be free to express themselves through their music.
