Mononome is a sample-based producer from Thessaloniki, Greece whose beat-making journey started in 2007. His sample range extends from 50’s to 80’s era music blending as many tunes and grooves possible to create and maintain a jazzy element.
“Come Close” is the result of rusty brass and nostalgic loops enjoying the company of groovy bass lines and hard-hitting drums on a cold winter night. Layered with soul and jazz elements, Mononome’s 3rd EP, which is released via Beatquick Records, was entirely produced, mixed & arranged with an AKAI MPC 2500. All sounds came from sampling dusty old records and especially Greek 7″. Enjoy the trip as if it’s short, and you are “getting close(r)”.
