Rounding off an impressive debut year 'moscow records' is delighted to uncover another rare gem from the London underground just in time for the festive period. John Monkman is a producer with serious credentials: he has been working as a co-producer with Bryan Ferry for his new album, has scored adverts for Mario Testino, toured his music around the globe from the beaches of Brazil to the fields of Glastonbury, and has produced a critically acclaimed album! The only reason that he remains a discreet presence is due to the many aliases he has adopted over the years and as a testament to his humility - here is a producer that does not crave the limelight but is more content delving deep into his work in the studio.

This dedication to his craft is beautifully reflected in this double A single. Beija-Flor layers distant analog atmospheres with a slow rolling tech-house groove to compliment the organic ebb and flow, this is intermittently disrupted by overloaded samples and vocal snippets to create stunning leads that are sure to entrance and captivate the audience. Bora Bora serves up a deep jacking beat that subtly evolves over it's course, weaving between faint hints of melody and mystic vocals that demonstrate the precise detail and virtuosity of John's productions, providing a highly rewarding experience for the listener. Released as 300 limited press vinyl and as a digital download.

Written & Produced by John Monkman.
