Born raised in Peru, this musical mastermind is far from home in the Big Apple, invading the city with his big room beats and rhapsodic stage presence. Monikkr, born to the name Anthony Fonseca, has not only gained multiple residencies throughout New York but has opened for some of the biggest names in Electronic Music. At the same time, he juggles producing new music, releasing and performing music with his band Beauty In The Machine, and managing his very own record label, NYC Bass Collective.
Nyc Bass Collective, founded in 2014, not only gives up-and-coming artists a platform on which to release their creativeness, but also produces varied parties around NYC.
A past resident of Le Soukʼs famous electronic event, The Wolf Party, where the freaks come out at night and NSFW is a motto, Monikkr brought fresh sounds to a hungry crowd for 3 years! His year and a half residency at the historic Webster Hall Girls & Boys party granted him the opportunity to support such artists as Dada Life, Bingo Players, RJD2, Skrillex, Tiesto, and Madeon, leaving him with a new connection and respect for the larger crowds they brought.
Now with a clear focus, he's going back to his house, disco, funky breakbeat roots to bring you a fresh approach to a familiar sound.
