I Monster is a British electronic music group, comprising Sheffield based producers Dean Honer and Jarrod Gosling. They formed in 1997, and released their debut album These Are Our Children.
However, due to Honer being involved with hitmakers All Seeing I, it was not until 2001 that they released their first single, "Daydream in Blue", a remix of The Gunter Kallmann Choir's version of The Wallace Collection's "Daydream". The song was originally released on 7" on Honer's own record label Cercle Records, which he founded with Add N to (X)'s Barry Seven. It was later re-released with a new mix on Instant Karma (in association with their own label Twins of Evil); which has also released material from Kings Have Long Arms and Mu Chan Clan. The song also featured on episode 3 of season 1 in the BBC Television television drama Hustle.
They released their acclaimed second album Neveroddoreven in 2003, which was re-released with a new sleeve in 2004. The band are regular guest DJs across the country, and have played live shows in London and at various European music festivals. Part of their live band is made up of Fred de Fred and Marion Benoist from The Lovers, on guitar and vocals respectively.
I Monster and their label, Twins of Evil, are both named after horror films.
Tchaikovsky's the Danse de Cygnes in Swan Lake has also been used in a number of films such as Shaun of the Dead (Note their song "The Blue Wrath" was used in Shaun of the Dead not Daydream in Blue), Riders (Steal), the snowboard video "From _______ with Love" (Mack Dawg Productions) and has been sampled by hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco on his second single "Daydreamin'". It was also used in the Ford Focus ST advertisement in the UK and was also translated into other languages (for example, Turkish) for use in other European countries. The "Glamour Puss" remix of their song "Hey Mrs." was used in television commercials for Absolut Vodka and television series Eureka. As well as this, their song "These Are Our Children" was used several times on the Australian television series Underbelly; and was subsequently released as part of the Underbelly soundtrack.
They have recently released the follow up to Neveroddoreven, titled 'A Dense Swarm of Ancient Stars'
