Mac Miller tragically passed away in 2018, but we’re now getting to hear what he was working on before his death. “Circles” is the first posthumous release of Miller’s work. Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas, Jr. played on one track and shares the story.
Zildjian Live! shared this video last summer, and while it is mostly focused on drummer Omar Hakim, it also includes an incredible collaboration with Ghost-Note. The band, anchored by the bass work of MonoNeon, performs Hakim’s “Convergence.”
MonoNeon kicked the new year off right by releasing a fresh album called “Toxic Wasteland 2 The Hills.” The eight-song collection continues the bassist’s unreal sense of groove and melody. It also has a loose theme of self-care.
Dywane “MonoNeon” Thomas, Jr. has released a second album for 2019. “Living The Best And Worst Life At The Same Damn Time!” Contains eight songs of quirky lyrics, infectious beats, and unreal bass playing.
