When you get to be a label as infamous as Monstercat, you eventually accrue quite the loyal following. That isn’t exactly the whole truth though… Monstercat is what it is today mostly due to that following. The artists and staff have helped to curate a micro-community within the EDM scene where collaboration, sharing and familiarity thrives. Their podcast Twitch streams are always filled with recognizable names, and their subreddit is absolutely flourishing with new news, theories and music from all over the EDM scene.
