esident DJ Juan R. Ruiz (DJ Monn) was born in Madrid 1965 and from a young start got
interested in soul & funk, listening to groups like The Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, The Whispers, Kool & the Gang etc and loved the sounds included in mighty labels like Motown or A Warner.
The 80's arrived and he travelled to the island of Ibiza for the first time where he had his first contact with electronic music (acid house) and began to frequent the best Ibiza and Madrid clubs of the time. DJs like Steve Lawler, DJ Chus, David Penn, Eric Morillo, Roger Sanchez excited him and in the early 90's he bought some decks and start playing at home and at private parties, trying to merge into each of his sessions his influences.
What started as a hobby, little by little became a passion and he began to get gigs in Madrid and outlying villages (Avenida 55, New Face, Pacha, Beach, Cool People, etc) Currently involved with Undersound and Overlook events whilst producing with Adelante.
