King Edward ⋅ Mark Edmundson
DJ ⋅ Journalist
King Edward (née Monkeyboy) is a party soul DJ and selector specialising – unsurprisingly – in all things soulful and danceable.
In a former life Monkeyboy was variously a resident at The Bongo Club‘s underground funk party Four Corners, associate of the Curios? collective, one half of Zetan Warlord, founding member of the Tuesday social Swingbeats, sometime back room guest at Headspin and a jobbing DJ around Edinburgh holding down bar residencies, soundtracking parties and popping up on radio shows.
Meanwhile Mark Edmundson wrote predominantly for Scotland’s arts and culture magazine The List, turning out copy on upcoming live music and club events, new music releases, books and anything else that crossed his desk. He also had work published in DJ Magazine and The Scotsman newspaper.
Since relocating to Bristol King Edward has continued to play parties and club nights, most notably joining the ranks of the We Like To Party crew at Start the Bus and lending his services to the Food & Theatre Company for their rockabilly rollerdisco Jack Rabbit’s Derby.
Mark Edmundson has written for multi-arts venue Trinity‘s website, blogged for the Bristol Old Vic, and launched lost soul music blog The Hidden Crate.
