The first year Lost Lands was an overwhelming success. Held in Southeast Ohio, thousands attendees spent the weekend walking amongst the dinosaurs fueled by bass. Plenty performing artists had standout sets. One those was none other than the Circus Dubstep king Cookie Monsta. Many were ranting and raving post Lost Lands that he was the best set the weekend. Cookie was a perfect match for the biggest dubstep festival ever thrown in the states.
Otherwise known as Tony Cook, Cookie Monsta is originally from Nottingham, UK. He started his career as a kid creating music f his brother’s PlayStation.
In college, he pursued a degree in music technology. This is where he found Rusko’s signature sound and instantly became hooked.
