Los Angeles Producer / DJ / Volunteer Monkey Ranger SARU (aka Spooky Monkey) spends one month each year trekking through the mountains searching for rare herbs. Are they in between a baboons brow, under a long forgotten trading card, or possibly in the folds of a sequined prayer robe? Who knows. He seeks these rare and mystical plants for a magic elixir that will one day wash away the woes of the world. Someday he’ll find the elusive ingredients. In the meantime he settles for twisting vinyl discs into eighty-minute mandalas and brewing his special tincture of throat-soothing beats.
The other eleven months he splits his time between experience design, dropping beats on fools, and fragging noobs. He made an album for Shadow Records and one on his own, scored a documentary, been on a few compilations, done some remixes and cut some wax on Bastard Jazz.
