I have been producing as Actraiser for several years now. I live in the UK in East Anglia, but before this I was living in Bristol, which is by far my favourite city in the UK, though the slower pace of country life has been extremely agreeable to the creative process. While I am probably best known for my liquid drum & bass tracks, I have also had multiple releases in several different genres such as dubstep, future garage, techno, progressive house, UK funky, Footwork and Trip-Hop. Most recently I’ve had a string of releases on Fokuz and Celsius Recordings, two labels that I have been a fan of for many years now, so becoming part of their artist roster was a very proud moment and it definitely filled me with a new level of confidence in my production abilities.

“New Blood 014″ Introducing: Monika

Give us a little introduction:
I am Maxwell Sweeney, AKA Monika; originating from just outside Milton Keynes but I currently live in the south east of London. Monika is my music outlet but I also am also the co-director of a freelance audio post-production company focusing on bespoke sound effects and music. As with many producers, music has been around for a lot of my life. My parents were never musicians but they were clever enough to get me into piano lessons from a very early age. It was there I learned the basic compositional skills that I still use to this day, but it wasn’t till a lot later on that I found my real drive for writing electronic music.
