More About Cookie Monsta
From Nottingham, UK, Cookie Monsta’s filth on the decks also represented the grimey side of the dubstep genre. His sound was truly one of a kind encapsulated the UK Grime style of dubstep. Tony Cook pushed the boundaries of what it meant to be a dubstep artist. Being asked to join Circus Records by Flux Pavillion, his first release on the label was’ Ginger Pubes/ Blurgh!’ With his groundbreaking B2b’s and his personal touch on dubstep, he will be missed.
Here at Mix247edm, we extend our condolences to the family, friends, and the bass community that loved Cookie Monsta.
