Monolink is the stage name of Steffen Linck, a German DJ, singer-songwriter and electronic dance music producer who specializes in ambient, techno, electronica and house genres. Wikipedia

A member of the Berlin electronica scene, Monolink quickly broke away from the classic DJ set and instead created his own style with a combination of live vocals and instruments.[1] SF Weekly describes him as a purveyor of “trippy relaxation with a slightly gravelly, Teutonic voice”.[2] Monolink collaborated with other electronic acts, including Acid Pauli.[3]

Monolink released his debut album, Amniotic, in 2018. The recording combines the tradition of singer-songwriting with electronic dance music, where techno, electronica and ambient genres blend with influences of Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.[1] Two singles from the release, “Sirens” and “Swallow” appeared at #1 spot in the iTunes Electronic (Germany). A review in EDM Identity describes the songs from the album as consisting of “hypnotic beats and vocals” and as “a blend of both deep and happy melodic sounds”.[4]
