From: Vienna, Austria
Monophobe is an aspiring and highly talented musician, beatmaker, and producer from Austria. The genres he is operating in are quite diverse, from Electronica to delicate Future R’n’B and crispy Bass Music. His debut EP “Throwback” was released in December 2015 via Shash Records, followed by “Double Tap” on the Slovakian label Gergaz and “Tape Me” with fellow producer FVLCRVM on Modeltraxx Records.
Monophobe has also made several official remixes for acts like Abby Lee Tee, Hearts Hearts, Mynth or Leyya and has collaborated with the likes of Jimmy Pé, FVLCRVM, Sixtus Preiss, Karma Art, Left Boy or 5KHD. His tracks are played & supported by artists like Machinedrum, LeFtO, Chief, Laurent Garnier, Jimmy Pé, The Clonious or Shadow Child and can be found on numerous compilations.
Maximilian Walch aka Monophobe has defined his own genre simply as music. At least according to his facebook page. And considering his diverse musical education and the wide variety of musicians he has worked with it is probably the most fitting for him. He enjoyed a musical education in grade school, first playing violin and then viola. He also enjoys choral perofrmances, a hobby he says he still maintains when time allows it.
But time is getting rare for this talented producer, who has just added to his already long list of credits with a new collaborative EP together with Karma Art from Vienna. The result is a genre bending collection of seven tracks that literally bubbles with influences from across the musical spectrum. Jazz, improv, experimental, classic and of course lots of electronica are thrown in to a shape that should make any musically obsessed gamer feel right at home.
