Dirt Monkey and Sully unleash “King Kong” on WAKAAN

Kicking starting the month of March, Dirt Monkey and Sully join creative forces for a massive new single titled “King Kong.” The mighty track encapsulates with the experimental wonky style of Dirty Monkey, while delivering the jaw-dropping bass music of Sully. We can thank Liquid Stranger and the Ascension Tour, for uniting these stellar artists!

“King Kong” rampages through the bass music scene with wubz and wonky bass hits. The minimal intro gives very little as to whats to come. The build of claps, drum breaks, and growling synths break lose into intensifying leads while the bass and kick stomp underneath. “King Kong” ignites the crowd with it’s monstrous energy as a result of a perfect bass music collaboration.

Dirt Monkey tell us:

“Sully and I wrote this lil number on Liquid Stranger’s tour in early 2020 right before the pandemic hit… we tried to make it as anthemic as possible, and it’s gotten a great crowd response every single time I’ve played it, so I’m very excited for it to be out!.”

Sully adds:

“Pat (Dirt Monkey) is an absolute beast of a producer, a great friend, and has been an influence for me over the years. King Kong came together SO quick. I remember passing the laptop and headphones back and forth every half hour until it was knocked out one afternoon before we played a show in Baton Rouge. The next day, we wrapped up the song in Luzcid’s kitchen in Houston and got to play out the full product at the Ayva Center for one of my last stops of the tour.” 

“King Kong” by Dirty Monkey and Sully was released on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, via WAKAAN.

2019 saw the rise of Dirt Monkey’s own imprint label, 19K, with the mission to represent culture and music. The label was created to cultivate the next generation of experimental electronic music by showcasing the talents of artists both revered and obscure. Since its launch, it has released over 30 singles, EPs, and albums from all walks of bass music and remains a notable figure in the scene.

Dirt Monkey took full advantage of 2021 with a packed festival season that included appearances at Electric Zoo, Lost Lands, and Bass Canyon, a headline Mission Ballroom play, and the release of his sixth full length album, titled Depolarize. He zoomed directly from festival season into the Depolarize Tour, his 40+ stop headline bus tour across the United States. Packaged with entirely new visuals from noted artist Incedigris and new tracks off his album, Dirt Monkey once again proved himself as an expert of his craft.

Dirt Monkey rang in 2022 with a headline b2b with Boogie T at Countdown NYE, followed by multiple appearances as special guest on SubtronicsFractal Tour. With an extensive touring schedule and a growing collection of unreleased music, 2022 looks to be another monumental year for Dirt Monkey.

More About Sully

Sully” is the brainchild and nickname of Detroit-based producer, Christopher Sullivant. Weaving guttural sound design and intricate textures into wide melodic soundscapes, Sully has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with.

After refining his production skills from the highly acclaimed Icon Collective, Sully first stepped into the electronic music scene in March of 2019. With a series of prolific self-releases such as “Frequency Shift” and “Quake” under his belt, Sully made his WAKAAN debut in late 2019, where he continues to call home for his intoxicating sound.
