Cookie Monsta aka Tony Cook is a producer and DJ from Nottingham, the UK who represents the loud and grimy side of dubstep. “ If you crave the downright nasty dubstep then Cookie Monsta’s your guy. As a child Tony spent hours on his brother’s Playstation creating sounds on Music 2000, this inspired him to study music technology for real at college.
Always attracted to the dirtier sides of music, whatever the genre, he was caught off guard by Rusko’s upbeat style on hearing ‘FabricLive 37’ and became instantly hooked. He began to make dubstep-style tunes, random beats with a grime sound.
Since then Cookie has gone from strength to strength, pushed the boundaries of Dubstep and moved on into many other tempos of EDM. He has toured all over the world and is constantly in demand, his DJing is energetic and his tunes are all bangers.
