Monstercat (formerly known as Monstercat Media) is an independent electronic music label located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Monstercat was formed in July 2011 by CEO Mike Darlington, COO Ari Paunonen, James Leusink, also known as Ephixa .

The label signs artists on a non-exclusive single-track basis, allowing artists to move freely between other labels and brands. Monstercat follows a release schedule, where new music is published three times a week, in addition to an hour-long podcast, which is streamed every Tuesday on Twitch, Beam and Youtube. After Monstercat released a series of thirty tracks, the new album collection created contains these tracks and two continuous mix album.

History

In July 2011, James Leusink, Mike Darlington, Monstercat's current CEO and Ari Paunonen, Monstercat's current COO, created the Monstercat Youtube channel as a medium for their friends to promote themselves and to share their music with each other. The two created compilation albums to provide artists with a method of releasing their music and to lessen the competitiveness between them. Monstercat's first compilation album, Launch Week featured seven artists: Feint, Halo Nova (now known as Varien), Stephen Walking, Ephixa, Neilio, Arion and Going Quantum. During the first few months of 2014, Monstercat partnered with the electric family in aid of the Humane Society of Canada. In December 2014, Monstercat launched a 24-hour digital radio station, hosted on Twitch and YoutubeTo this day, Monstercat continues to release compilation albums containing thirty songs and two mixes each.
