Cookie Monsta DJ – Cookie Monsta Dubstep
Cookie was a DJ who represents the loud and grimy side of dubstep. According to a profile on his management’s website reads, “If you crave the downright nasty dubstep then Cookie Monsta’s your guy. Packing a recipe of face-slapping snares, ground shaking bass and eye gougingly dirty synths … his sound resembles that of a demonic bass-saw that easily lacerates the eardrums of all it encounters.”
Tony studied music technology in college after spending hours on his brother’s Playstation creating sounds on Music 2000. He began making dubstep-style tunes, random beats with a grime sound after he was caught off guard by Rusko’s upbeat style on hearing ‘FabricLive 37’ and became instantly hooked.

In May 2019 he canceled a series of performances due to “mental health issues.” He made a statement on Facebook;
“For the past year I’ve been struggling with mental health issues, over the recent weeks and months this has become harder than ever. I’ve not been online recently as I’ve been trying to work through my problems away from the glare of social media. Unfortunately, I’ve not made as much progress as I’d hoped, so I’ve decided that I need to take a longer break from the scene. With a heavy heart, I have to tell you that I’ll not be performing at any of my forthcoming shows, including my appearances on the Circus 10 Years Tour. I will continue making and releasing music, beyond that I look forward to being back out to see you soon when I’m better.
