ryan anthony 
aka phat monkey

Born in Wales in the United Kingdom many moons ago on a stormy night as the sheep roamed the land I began my music journey on the piano earning me six distinctions by the age of eleven. During the early years in 1998 I was DJ Rise until 2004. In 2002 one of my songs was used for a popular video game advert on TV and things went from there providing short clip tracks for ads and two film documentaries. Over the years I have gone under different moniker's including Ryan Anthony on Alter Ego Records (Tranquil State) 

I was the Monkey behind the old chart topping volume one and two DJ mix series 'Ibiza Beach Bar Grooves' on Beatport as Phat Monkey

I enjoy travelling, meeting new people, one of my favourite places on this beautiful planet is Thailand a country rich in culture, ancient temples, amazing food, music and people

My skills include, music production, music mastering, song writing, DJ, event planer, VIP services, video editing, web design, photo editing and everything in-between, I guess you could say I am a jack of all trades with over 20 years of experience  

In 2019 my life took a back seat after losing my mother making me the sole carer for my father that suffered from Dementia and Cancer as well as a host of other medical problems. Music and my dog Dan was essential in keeping my mental health healthy but unfortunately mid February 2022 I lost my best friend Dan (dog) of 13 years followed by my father two months later

I have grown into a different person than who I used to be, although many know me for my humour and silly antics which is usually at my own expense as I love to entertain I also have a serious side when needed.

I have been known to get into heated discussions with high profile people when they are being a 'DK', some respect this as I am not known for licking 'A$$', I say what I think. There are no VIP's in my world, everyone is treated equally until they step out of line hahahaha 

As stated on the intro to my website I am nobody special, just a guy that loves music and loves helping others achive their goals, I am the guy that cheers you on from the sidelines never asking for anything in return

I hope this gives you some insight into my personal life, peace and love xXx
