The debut EP from Monsta, a UK Dubstep trio, will feature remixes from Skrillex + Nero, Alvin Risk and Dillon Francis + Kill Paris

The story goes like this – Skrillex was chillin’ at South by Southwest with his manager and some friends. His manager breaks out Monsta’s track ‘Holdin’ On’ (below) and presses play. Skrilly looks at him and goes, “That’s a sick track and a cool vocal sample. Where’d they get that from? Is that Aretha Franklin?” Nope. It was Chris from Monsta’s voice and it was singing original music. Next thing ya know, we’re blogging about the group’s debut EP on Mr. Moore’s record label.

You know you’re bad ass when your debut EP has remixes from Skrillex, Nero, Alvin Risk and Dillon Francis. #Certified.

You can pre-order the Monsta – Holdin’ On EP [OWSLA] on iTunes. It comes out October 23.

They’ve been described as mixture of Flux Pavilion, Moby and U.N.K.L.E. Their sound is instrument-based and largely sample-free. They’re currently signed to the same management group as Chase & Status, Knife Party and Sub Focus and are remixing for Zedd, Labrinth, Skylar Grey and more.

“His vocals are so raw and so pristine he can just walk up to any mic…. he just sounds like fucking angels are singing.”
– Skrillex
