Monibi is a DJ , radio presenter, and producer based in Berlin, Germany. Born & bred in France, former UK resident, adopted German. Soundtracks for leftfield ravers, shamanistically inclined.
Sarah Roellinger-Shaikh aka Monibi presents UK low-end centric music & modern genre-bending underground productions inspired by the UK bass, leftfield house, and Detroit electro music traditions. A true champion of eclecticism and diversity, Monibi explores connections between various musical styles, eras, and geographies.
Kölncampus Alumni & former Red Light Radio Amsterdam resident, she now carries on hosting her monthly radio show “Etcetera with Monibi” on THF radio, a community radio in the former Tempelhof airport, Berlin. She is also an active member and co-curator of the Cologne-based collective and DIY label baumusik.
Her debut EP “Faux pas” comes out in 2019 via baumusik. “Faux pas” is a 4 track EP (+ a bonus italo disco edit) lying somewhere between leftfield techno and broken beat, think club-oriented electronica and wavy basslines, with an industrial touch. Her first EP comes a couple of months after her debut release of “Ghaita la zorna du flohmarkt”, a synthwave bootleg of a traditional Moroccan song, on baumusik’s 3-year anniversary “KEDI” compilation. In July 2020 she releases an electro-bass, dark disco roller called “Corona Ate My Dollaz”. Monibi is currently working on new music.
In the last couple of years she has shown herself to be a versatile and forward thinking DJ in the Cologne scene. She has appeared in DJ booths at local venues such as Gewölbe, Studio 672 / Jaki, Acephale, but also in Berlin, Amsterdam, Marseille, Hamburg. Since the lockdown her DJ sets have been heard on WDR Cosmo, Hör radio, United We Stream and Arte Concert.
When Monibi isn't DJing or making tunes, she's found at mixing desks doing FOH for live bands or producing podcasts for streaming services.
