Monotonik is a that _exclusively_ releases music online in the mp3 format. All of our releases are freely downloadable and distributable under a Creative Commons license that allows free non-commercial distribution, and we’ve been releasing .mp3 and .mod files online since May 1996. The label was founded by Simon ‘h0l’ Carless as an outlet for talented electronic musicians who weren’t getting the attention they deserved.

Since then, Monotonik has released over 300 tracks from a variety of talented idm-ish electronic musicians from all over the world, including such artists as Lackluster (DeFocus/Merck), Bogdan Raczynski (Rephlex), Sense (Neo-Ouija), Tim Koch (Surgery/DeFocus), BrothomStates (Warp), Proem (Merck/Hydrant), Fun Tourist (Worm Interface/Sony Finland), Vim! (Surgery/Oggum), and many more.

Monotonik and its sister breakbeat sublabel Mono211 have been through a lot since ’96. We’ve been featured in “Spin” magazine, have soundtracked a Sony Playstation game, were invited exhibitors at the Ars Electronica festival in Austria, have been played out on radio stations from Australia to Slovenia, featured on a Webby-nominated weirdass radio station, and have had millions of downloads of our tracks.

If you like the music we release, please support the real-world (CD/vinyl) releases of our artists, or if you’re a label owner, sign them up to a deal.

We do this for fun. Music is great, and giving great music away for free is even better. Hope you dig it.

In a blog posting by owner Simon Carless in December 2009 it was announced that the label would be on indefinite hiatus.
