Monolink is the stage name of Steffen Linck, a German DJ, singer-songwriter and electronic dance music producer who specializes in ambient, techno, electronica and house genres.
A member of the Berlin electronica scene, Monolink quickly broke away from the classic DJ set and instead created his style with a combination of live vocals and instruments. SF Weekly describes him as a purveyor of “trippy relaxation with a slightly gravelly, Teutonic voice”. Monolink collaborated with other electronic acts, including Acid Pauli.
Singer-Songwriter and Electronic music producer. To many that might sound like two very different aspects of modern sound culture – which in turn makes Monolink a fascinating character, because he’s both rolled into one. His style seamlessly connects the narrative structure of a song with the compelling forward thrust of electronic rhythms. Guitar chords merge into synthetic pad sounds, hypnotic bass vibrations meet emotional vocal parts, passionate physicality meets sublime stimulation for the mind.
