After an incredible year in 2017 with a number of major benchmarks surpassed, Monstercat enters 2018 with the unveiling of Monstercat: Uncaged and Monstercat: Instinct. The two new developments will represent the different ends of the spectrum of Monstercat’s diverse catalog and roster. Uncaged will represent the heavy-hitting, bass-fueled side of the label, while Instinct will represent the opposite: the pop-infused faction of music under the Monstercat umbrella.
Mike Darlington, CEO of Monstercat, explains, “Monstercat: Instinct represents an important development in the tastes and interests of the Monstercat family. As we’ve grown, new music, events, and clothing brands inspire us to strive for further innovation. Through an exploration of art, creativity, and beauty. Instinct will develop the unique stories of our artists worldwide.”
On the contrary, Darlington says, “Monstercat: Uncaged is the continued evolution of the music that defined our early years. The combination of live events, bass music, and gaming laid the groundwork for our deep love of electronic music. Uncaged allows us to heighten the focus on these core elements to create a compelling experience for our community.”
Artists like Didrick, Adam Young of Owl City and more are set to release under the Monstercat: Instinct brand, while names like Gent & Jawns and Darren Styles will join the Monstercat: Uncaged ranks.
