Monika Kruse

Classically 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. Monika Kruse's talent and dedication has made her one of the world's most highly-respected DJs and producers. In 2015 her Terminal M label celebrated its 15th anniversary with a string of sold-out parties including a massive show at the Amsterdam Dance Event. It continued its fantastic run with numerous Beatport top 10 tracks from Monika, ANNA and Methodi Hristov among others. Monika's DJ appearances spanned the globe, including a South American tour and gigs throughout Europe, UK, USA and Canada. Among the highlights were Destino Ibiza Opening and joining Carl Cox for Music Is Revolution @ Space Ibiza. Her charity work, DJing and production, all express Monika’s faith in the transforming power of music. “It was my rst love,” she says. “Music was my best friend. It never let me down. In good times music was there and in bad times music was there.”
