To build upon the previous person's comments, I would like to add that yes, the music is repetitive (as opposed to "monotonous") but this is a deliberate function of the music to create a trance, an attempt to freeze musical time so to speak.
When listening to the same thing over and again we develop a sense of hypnosis, we loose all grasp of all our moorings to normal space and time. And this, I believe, is exactly what we are presented with here by Theo Parrish. Of special interest is also to note that the title of the track is specifically oriented toward nightime consumption (listening if you will), a fact that lends credence to the assumption that this music not only creates within itself a space and time of its own, a 'frozen' one, but also that the context in which it is meant to be consumed is also outside the bounds of mundane social life, of work and its trappings; it is intended to be consumed in the theatre of the night, the time of ludic activity and play, where the social differentiations that separate us all from each other like an iron grill in our day to day existences are systematically dissolved as we participate together in the music and the dance.
Great track by Theo, nice and minimal and abstract. Peace to all the real house lovers out there: only we know what time it really is.

I often find myself humming moonlight. It is very catchy if a bit monotonous.
