I first heard about Monkey Safari when buying tickets to a techno festival called TH!NK? last summer. The one day festival took place in Leipzig, Germany right on a large lake. Footloose and fancy free festival goers (including this one) waved their arms and swayed their bodies in the water as DJs performed on the stage above. This song never fails to remind me of that magical day (and also put a huge fucking grin on my face.)
I was going to write a quick blurb about the DJ duo here but then I came across their Twitter bio. It sums up everything I feel about them so well that I decided to just copy + paste. "Riding in with the power to deliver sunshine to world’s rainiest open air events, Monkey Safari brings rays of light to every dance floor it casts its spell on." If you get a chance to see Monkey Safari performing at an open air this summer, please do me a favor and G-O!
