Miss Monica

In 1990 at the age of 18 Monica discovered the house music and it turned her life upside down. After visiting parties for three years she decided to become a DJ in 1993 under the name Miss Monica. In 1993 she became resident DJ of the Rotterdam club Nighttown, but she also regularly appeared in legendary clubs like Club Roxy en the iT, both in Amsterdam. She soon became one of the leading DJ's in the Netherlands and with 225 appearance in 1997 she was one of the DJ's with the busiest shedule in this year., She played a lot of different styles from funky/rhytmic/energetic/pumping techno tot club/tech/groovy/tribal/latino/puming energetic house. From 1998 till 2003 she stopped with DJing because she had a long-term illness from which she miraculously healed in 2003.

With her comeback tour in 2004 she was invited to the most important Dutch clubs and a lot of festivals, which were always sold out. At the end  of 2003 she recieved the BG Lucky Strike "Encouragment Award" for het comeback and in March 2004 she recieved the Goudenkabouter (golden leprechaun) award for her comeback in the dance scene.

She also workes on special project like "House meets Bach and Beethoven", where she performed with a string orchestra of 45 people, namely the Rotterdam Youth Symphony Orchestra. In 2006 she started her own clubnight "Absolutely Stereo" together with vocalist MC Miss Bunty and later also violinist Anastasija. In 2011 she started a new project under the name "Esperienza Musicale", together with MC Miss Bunty, violinist Anastasija and percusionist Ceciel Moyano.

In 2012 she decided to stop with classics/oldschool and mainstream due to the over-commecialisation of house-music. This decision was inspired by her visit to Berghain in Berlin in 2011 and Kiesgrube in Neuss in 2012. From that moment on she focussed on tech-house and funky-tech.
