Dusterr debuts on Monog Records with the beautifully crafted Intertwined EP
Atelier Francesco debuts on Monog Records with a remix of Dusterr’s The Baptism which is the second cut from this stellar EP. Atelier has longed to grace the grounds of a planetary place – somewhere oxygenated, somewhere gravitationally unchallenged, somewhere with dancefloors he could invade. He began in the depths of darkness to emulate and to craft the vibrations and sounds of our planet before he decided to master dark and moody grooves, creating his own unique live act. His deep house and tech house grooves have featured on several labels including Cocoon Recordings, Cityfox and Get Physical among others where he has already carved out a solid reputation. Great to have him on board. Here, Atelier lets us into his world, allowing us access to the solid gritty sounds which take us on a surreal journey. A steady flowing rhythm is formed with a tight drum arrangement which is laced with a myriad of cool FX and single shot percussions. The mid-range is dominated by a hypnotic synth as a simple bass lurks on the low-end. Chilling vocals captivate, taking us deeper and deeper and locking us in for the duration. A definite must have for the more serious floors.
Finishing up this EP we have the Original Mix of The Baptism which intros with a mesmerizing Sitar-like pluck and tribal chanting. Darker tones begin to show up, creating a rich and intriguing sound. Chunky kick drums are joined by rhythmic percussions and a smooth chugging bassline which drives the groove. A dark beckoning vocal dominates as eerie Blues style guitar licks deliver that final surreal touch to the groove. A monster tune that will not disappoint.
Dusterr aka musician and producer Tyler Oliver debuts on Monog Records with the superb Intertwined EP. When this one dropped into the office it created instant excitement and, the boss loves it so much he considers it to be his favourite Monog release so far. Dusterr showcases only his second release with this one and we’re hugely impressed with his creativity. His music interweaves the magic of human connection, consciousness, time and creation and, his songs are nostalgic for a future we have yet to create. An intriguing artist with an appealing sound, we hope to see and hear more from him soon.
Intertwined is a wonderfully unique, organic piece, welded together with an expert construction of rich sounds. Warm chords and deep probing basses link up alongside subtle melodies and a sublime dark vocal. A smooth drum section allows the body to move to a mid-tempo rhythm which lights up the groove, making it the perfect fodder for the late-night session.

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.
