85 Decibel Monks


The 85 decibel Monks were formed in 2001 as a production team consisting of several producers and musicians from the Iowa City area. The collective's main focus nowadays is writing underscore music for visual presentations. This shift in priorities, from selling CDs to licensing music, has moved Tack-Fu’s style from a loop based boom-bap foundation to more of a jazz / funk orientated brand of hip-hop.
