The New Monkey club opened in Sunderland in 1999, and helped build a rave scene centered around Makina, a fast tempo genre with roots in 90s Spanish dance and MCs typically joining DJs on tracks.

The Sunderland club closed in 2007 but its legacy lives on at rave events across the North East, including Newcastle's O2 Academy.
