Cutting-edge sound design is the name of his game, proven by his constant releases that span a broad spectrum of genres.

2019 saw the rise of Dirt Monkey's own imprint label, 19K, with the mission to represent culture and music. The label was created to cultivate the next generation of experimental electronic music by showcasing the talents of artists both revered and obscure.

Dirt Monkey took full advantage of 2021 with a packed festival season that included appearances at Electric Zoo, Lost Lands, and Bass Canyon, a headline Mission Ballroom play, and the release of his sixth full length album, titled Depolarize. He zoomed directly from festival season into the Depolarize Tour, his 40+ stop headline bus tour across the United States. Packaged with entirely new visuals from noted artist Incedigris and new tracks off his album, Dirt Monkey once again proved himself as an expert of his craft.
Dirt Monkey rang in 2022 with a headline b2b with Boogie T at Countdown NYE, followed by multiple appearances as special guest on Subtronics' Fractal Tour. With an extensive touring schedule and a growing collection of unreleased music, 2022 looks to be another monumental year for Dirt Monkey.
