This week's download comes from Greek sensation Monika. She is a platinum artist in her native country. Monika is now ready to invade this country with her new album "Secret In The Dark," produced by the Dap-Kings' Homer Steinweiss.
On a trip to New York in 2012, she made a pilgrimage to Dunham Sounds Studios Brooklyn headquarters, to see where some of her favorite artists from the Daptone soul scene had recorded; almost on a whim, Monika knocked on the door, and Homer Steinweiss (founding member of the Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band) answered. Soon she was playing demos she had on her phone for Homer and Thomas Brenneck (MSB, Budos Band, etc).
The album is full of 70's disco-pop inspired tunes like the title track, which is the download of the week.
