Christian Vance returns to Monog Records with the powerful Five Thieves EP
Berlin based DJ and producer Juliane Wolf offers up a superb remix on Five Thieves. Juliane got into music through attending a DJ workshop at Club Kasablanca and it was here that she caught the vinyl bug. She explored the club scene in the following years and found herself playing at top venues before she entered into the world of music production. Her first cuts were a remix for Robert Babicz on his label Babiczstyle and original releases on Shaker Plates and Norobot Music. After spending time in Kiel and Cologne Juliane arrived in Berlin where she works on new releases as well as a live set where she combines analogue and digital elements. The remix intros with nice punchy kick drum that exudes an energy which is further enhanced by a rolling bassline and quality gated synths. Bright shuffling hi hats lead a rhythmic percussion parade as dancing arpeggios fill the groove. The ever-evolving bassline delights with an infectious prowess and is the centrepiece of the track for the duration. A wonderful upbeat and trippy slice that will not disappoint.
That Morning Sound sets out with powerful subby kick drums that draw you in. Subtle percussions evolve into a display of intricate patterns creating gentle rhythmic shifts and carving out the foundation for an epic ride. Chord stabs fade up alongside stuttering notes as sweeter, more harmonious arpeggios join in while the bass remains locked on the tail end of the kicks. The groove is deep and hypnotic and will force you to move making this an absolute must have track in your arsenal.
Christian Vance returns to Monog Records with Five Thieves EP, his first full release after he first appeared here back in 2016 with a remix on Rave Nights EP by Juliane Wolf. As fate would have it, we’ve turned the tables and brought Juliane in on remix duties to return the favour. This is something we will actively promote at Monog, to reconnect artists musically, so keep an eye out for more like this. Christian is a power house on the Berlin club scene, his own fusion of House and Techno music is informed and influenced by his classically trained musical background which works perfectly with his electronic sound. He has played in various cities, countries, clubs and festivals in recent times, most notable Stattbad, Tresor and About Blank in Berlin, Club Kyo in Singapore and Berns 2.35:1 in Stockholm to name a few. Great to have him back once again.
The Five Thieves Original Mix opens with a super chunky kick drum which is joined by multi layered percussions that bring a pacey rhythmic flow to the track. A hypnotic bass arp sits menacingly as cool vox sounds fade in. A deep rumbling bassline rises up alongside flashy synth chords that create a dazzling display. A wonderfully rich and in-depth experience that will work well in a range of sets due to its hybrid nature.

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.
