Cookie Monsta’s success in the EDM industry
His success stemmed from his incredible talent to produce innovative, memorable dubstep bangers. In fact, his pulse-pounding basslines and grimy dubstep style earned him a lot of praises within the industry. Flux Pavilion admired his music style right away and invited him to join Circus Records shortly afterwards.
His first Circus Records release, “Ginger Pubes/Blurgh!” in 2010 helped become one of dubstep’s most recognizable stars and in turn, enhanced the dubstep genre to new popularity levels. His success has also lead him to toured around the world and performed at top festivals such as EDC Las Vegas and Lost Lands. Every track that he has released is always something that the fans always rocked out instantly.
