Monkey Shoulder celebrates 50 years of hip-hop with 4 live DJ sets

A party in the Bronx on August 11th, 1973 is widely considered to be the birthplace of Hip-Hop. The genre has since touched every corner of our world and evolved into one of the most significant cultural forces today.

Monkey Shoulder has been mixing it up with Hip-Hop legends such as Jazzy Jeff, Skitz, Nu Mark, Craze, Mr Thing & DJ Turne over the years, so naturally we want to support this epic celebration in Monkey Shoulder style by bringing 4 incredible livestream mixes throughout the month of August.

We’ve taken Monkey Shoulder to the Stratosphere!

We’re back to our usual tricks with our long-time DJ friends A-Skillz and DJ Krafty Kuts to create the ultimate ‘welcome back’ summer soundtrack, “Lit Up”. To launch the track, we’ve rocketed our dearly beloved bottle into the stratosphere and captured it all on camera for you to feast your eyes on. All money raised through the track and video will go to the Music Venue Trust, to give back to the hard-hit music industry.
