BLUE SPECTRAL MONKEY
Truly a connoisseur of psychedelic electronic music and art, Blue Spectral Monkey has been evolving, collecting and spinning incessantly since 1995, taking him across 23 states and Canada. Due to his devotion, enthusiasm and mastery of the craft, Blue Spectral Monkey has been widely recognized as one of the leading psychedelic DJs in the US. His trance sets are playful, funky, driving and mysterious; a symbiosis of tribal intensity and techno-logical meltdown. His vast collection and obsessive charting system provides him with countless directions to take the listener, through many realms and
styles. He is well known for his skills as a downtempo/chillout DJ, and joined the Interchill Records team in 2006. He dives deeply into new electronic dub, reggae and dubstep, glitchy fun, slow trance, minimal techno, deep ambient space, and chilled breaks with an ethno-spiritual-psychedelic twist,
all the time keeping the sounds thick, groovy and trippy. He is notorious for playing on multiple decks, as well as the occasional 10 hour set! He has shared the stage with many internationally renown artists including:Androcell, Solar Fields, Gus Till, Bluetech, Jaia, Govinda, Third Ear Audio, Liquid Stranger, Tripswitch, Piltdown Sound, and others!
Founded in 1995 by Andrew Ross Collins, Interchill got its start in the multi-sensory chill rooms of the early rave scene in Montreal. Originally launched to showcase and export Canadian ambient music to the rest of the world, the record label grew from a string of EPs to the seminal compilation 'Northern Circuits' and on to encompass music from producers around the planet. Now, after 13 years in operation and 34 albums in its catalogue, the label has soundly established itself as a key player in the downtempo electronic scene and is known worldwide for releasing hi-fidelity music that lasts. With a focus on 'organic electronica for expanding minds', Interchill maintains diversity while drawing a continuous thread through a wide variety of sounds and styles, bringing together the cutting-edge in dub, world-fusion, psy-chill, ambient, lounge and all points between. Over the years, Interchill has released albums from artists around the world like Bluetech, Eat Static, Mauxuam, Kaya Project, Gaudi, Ashtech, Adham Shaikh, Ishq, Pushmipulyu, Hibernation and Liquid Stranger.
