A fearless high octane Gangsta-Nerd duo with sassy lyrics and fast beats, Tigermonkey kindly agreed to perform in the Emmanuel Ray Show’s pilot episode, which is currently being edited. The entire cast and crew enjoyed their performance and I was thrilled when they announced their latest project.
The unlikely yet perfect pairing of producer/vocalist Guy Katsav and vocalist Madeleine Dunbar, brings to life cross-genre music with a striking combination of bouncy African rhythms, Middle-Eastern percussive beats, electric guitars and catchy vocal hooks.
For their new single OCD ADD, Tigermonkey collaborated with Ninja Tune’s remix app Ninja Jamm and made the song available for their fans to re-tweak. The song is also the official theme tune of Nerdist Channel‘s hit comedy series Set List.
Since moving to London in the early 2000’s, Guy Katsav has tapped into many genres of music, working with a number of acclaimed artists such as Laura Marling, David Guetta and The Streets, to name a few. In 2013 he established Denmark Street Studios, a modern twist and revival of the legendary music hub.
Ranging from guitar music to corpulent beats, Katsav has developed his own unique sounds and lyrics, resulting in a strange animal hybrid, by the name of Tigermonkey.
Madeleine Dunbar is a talented writer, actress and MC with a burning passion for late 1980s and 90s Hip Hop and Pop. Amalgamating these abilities, she continues to develop herself as a skilled and worldly rap artist. Both comedic and racy, Madeleine manages to harness the levels of charming cheek to a degree bound to make you melt regardless of whatever venomous verse she is spitting, and possesses unyielding sex appeal and bad-boy taste in trainers.
The London based duo have been showcasing their unique energy, taking over stages across the nation since 2012 with no plans to stop anytime soon. Check out their interview below.
