Born 24 years ago, and with a short trajectory, but breaking the mold, DJ Monik is forever polishing her skills to become one the best female DJ in Latin America. Her base influence in getting involved in music from her childhood was her father, who was a musician. Later, that same vocation what was drove Monik to percussion and guitar. When she was 17, she went for her first time to a “RAVE” party where the headliners were Jimmy Van M and DJ Sasha. The latter was her favorite and years after became her inspiration.

During that same year, she starts working in one of the most important radio stations in Costa Rica, 979 Conexion, where the first electronic music show in the country was broadcasted. Later, she ended up taking over the whole show.

In 2004 she received her first set of DJ equipment that saw this DJ grow with a genre called progressive trance.. very much like Oakenfold and Alexander Coe’s style. Monik’s metamorphosis took several years, changing styles, and sounds. She has also worked with production. Her genre was drum ‘n bass, with the percussion she always carried in her blood. In the same year she continues with electronic music and she is given the opportunity to warm up the dance floor for 2 local DJ’s at a club called Café 83 Sur. In November, she becomes a resident DJ for the first time at a Lounge called “Bajarse al Moro”.

In 2005 she has no option but to put aside the electronic sounds she so loved to pursue an academic career, but a year later she returns with lots of energy and dedication, and with a different sound.
This time around she comes with a melodic-progressive style (progressive house) with influences from DJ’s like Tarkan, V-Sag, G-Pal and more. Also, she works in tandem with D.U.B which is shorthand for Deep Underground Beats : spreading her unique style of music througout all Central America the world. Not satisfied with only being a DJ, she started new projects as a Producer, using her own vocals and also, she has Tracks released on beatport. Monik also Has been invited to be a guest DJ in one of the most important Online Radios world wide, frisky radio by Dj tarkan and Andrew k. Living on the edge to Europe, in Turkey, having new musical projects and starting her own F.M. radio show, also recently named Resident at one of the best Clubs in Central America : Club Stage in Guatemala.

In her short time being a DJ in Costa Rica, DJ Monik shared turntables with Dj's like : : Sandra Collins (Perfecto - Usa) , Manuel de la Mare (303 lovers - Italy ), Sultan (Yoshitoshi - Canada), Kabuto& Koji (Supernature, Cocoon - Costa Rica), DJ Tarkan ( No smoking recordings - Turkey), Oscar G (MURK) (Twisted- USA), Sir Thomas (Beatport), Dubfire (DeepDish - USA), Pat Farrell (EMPO - Switzerland), and many more…
