Monika Kruse vs 2000 and One
Cassically trained in piano, Monika’s love of music is broad and deep. She grew up buying records, accumulating a music collection that grew to span funk, soul, hip hop, and house music. When the revolutionary rhythms coming out of Chicago and Detroit captured her imagination it led her to throw parties in illegal venues including World War II bunkers, trams and empty houses.
Electronic music culture has evolved rapidly since those early days but Monika’s talent and passion is constant. “My ethos is ‘sweat with a smile,” she says. “I give love to my audience and they give it back. LOVE – it’s the best thing in the world. My aim is to help people forget whatever is going on in their life and have a little holiday – just get lost in my music.”
2000 and One
Vision and versatility – the DNA that defines 2000 and One (aka Dylan Hermelijn) as an artist. His pioneering vision across more than two decades of music genres, now ranks him as one the most versatile, in-demand international artists, commanding weekly performances on the house, techno and techhouse global club and festival circuits.
Clearly as the decade progresses there’s no sign of the 2000 and One’s sonic boom silencing as he propels himself forward to break new sound barriers in the world of electronic dance music.
WOW, Monika Kruse and 2000 and One will make you leave the dancefloor covered in sweat and filled by the love for music at the Techno Stage at Dance Valley Festival 2015!
