Federico Monachesi brings his established sound to FRISKY with Tempus Fugit
Federico Monachesi has been exploring electronic music since he was 13 years old, quickly falling into Progressive House and finding his place among the industry’s greats. As a producer, his music has been played by DJs such as Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Nick Muir, Guy Mantzur, Eelke Kleijn, Lonya, Dpen, Darin Epsilon, Luke Porter, Fady Ferraye, Gai Barone among others, who appreciate his flowing, well defined sound. As a DJ he’s shared the decks with many of the same DJs who have played his tracks, and his residency at the renowned La Boite Club has given him an incomparable perspective on Argentina’s Underground scene.
His many guest mixes on FRISKY have showcased his smooth style and selective taste, and his new show Tempus Fugit will give listeners a chance to experience it every month. Premiering March 28th at 11AM EST [convert timezone], you can also listen any time after on-demand with a FRISKY Premium Subscription.
