Intent on sharing their new aural crushes with the world, Soul Clap Records HQ present the first full body of work from San Franscisco artist Nick Monaco, the 12” ‘Naked Is My Nature EP’. The ‘Butterfly’ 7” is out now and a digital selection is due in February.

“Naked Is My Nature feels like my first true artist project. Up until now I didn't really see myself as an artist. I felt like I had to just make dance music. So, all of these songs are me letting loose and seeing what my range as an artist is... as you can see a lot came out. I started singing, collecting sounds, beatboxing, walking, grunting, whatever I could to get a piece of me and my environment inside this music. This is all music I made throughout this year, which has been a really pivotal one for me. These songs document both these new experiences I have been having and this really deep side of me that nobody has really heard before. I hope that Naked Is My Nature helps to restore some innocence and depth back into dance music... Oh! And I hope it makes people smile as much as I do :)” – Nick Monaco

“The Naked Is My Nature EP takes us all the way back to the days of vinyl, dance moves and innocence. When an artist's EP would have not only the meat, but the skin and bones too. Here we take a look into the mind of Nick Monaco our young brother from San Francisco's Bay Area. Turn up the volume and we can explore his musical palette which in true Soul Clap Records fashion seems to soak up the past and future simultaneously. Feelings of funk, house and break beats explode in a kaleidoscope of influences which range widely from Cameo to Deee-lite and way beyond. We're oh so proud to release Nick Monaco's first EP which is generously overflowing with tracks and tools for DJ fun. Get ready world it looks like the party has only just getting started.” - Charlie Soul Clap
