Dirt Monkey, aka Patrick Megeath, has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds within the Denver, Colorado dubstep scene and has gained international acknowledgment with his punchy and playful sound design. In 2012, when the industry was just starting to get attention and artists were still trying to get their foot in the door, Dirt Monkey released “Intergalactic” an out-of-this-world collaboration with dubstep producer MSD.
