Beat Box: Soulful voice that solidified Monique’s place in House Scene

If there’s one voice that has recently caught my attention, it’s that of Monique Bingham. I can’t even begin to describe her voice, but I’ll just say that her voice has managed to crack a hole in my music loving heart. Though I have not had the pleasure to witness any of her performances in South Africa, but those who were privileged enough surely were left stunned and were probably reeling for more.

The singer and songwriter has so much electrifying energy and the ability to put herself in the skins of the kind of folks who are out there jamming to her sounds. Her records are distinct from what’s out there and what you find in her voice is some silliness that could persuade one to...

The songstress’ career began at a session at Francios Kevorkians Axis Studio’s, it was from that point where it led to a cool well looked after music journey. Monique has worked with some of House music’s hottest acts and producers such as Japanese production act Studio Apartment, Quentin Harris, Blue Six and Ralf Gum to name drop a few.

Monique has penned and performed songs such as “Pure”, “Don’t you love me”, and “Like Water” which was put together with Abstract Truth’s bandleader Dana Vicek.

In her music you find peace and relaxation, which have influenced me to put some of her songs on repeat.
With a personality that springs off colourfully and a voice similar to that of Sade, this performer surely has managed to leave a scar on House music lovers in South Africa.
