2021 is shaping up to be a fruitful year for Mononeon. After releasing “Banana Peel on Capitol Hill” in January, the bassist has dropped another killer album, “Supermane”.
MonoNeon has been a part of many great videos in our archives, but this one is extra special. “Jamming with my grandma today. I grew up listening to her sing this song in church. ‘Oh, When I Come to the End of My Journey’”, he shared.
Mononeon is getting the year started on the right foot with the release of “Banana Peel on Capitol Hill”, an album he describes as “comedy, allegory, and funk in a 25-minute package.”
We first met MonoNeon at the 2010 NAMM Show. We didn’t know a lot about him or his music at the time, but once that changed, we were fans for life. MonoNeon had a busy year in 2020, and readers responded. That put him at #7 on this year’s list.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Zildjian LIVE! video series, but this is the one I was hoping would happen. In this clip, the legendary Dennis Chambers joins Ghost-Note (with MonoNeon on bass). This one is so great. Even the false start is great!
MonoNeon has been impressing us for years on the bass. Now he’s doing it again with vocals – and bass. Here’s a new track by MonoNeon and Davy Nathan. MonoNeon he not only handles the bass and vocals, but also guitar, keyboards, and percussion.
Rap icon Nas has returned with his thirteenth studio album, with guest appearances by The Firm, Don Toliver, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, Lil Durk, and more. It also features bass phenom MonoNeon alongside Anderson .Paak on the track “All Bad.”
I’m always stoked to see a new video from the Zildjian LIVE! series, and this one is amazing. In this clip, drummer JD Beck and keyboardist DOMi join Ghost-Note for a live performance. MonoNeon grooves on this one!
Here’s a recent video from Zildjian LIVE! series’ second season, which features drummer Marcus Gilmore performing with Ghost-Note. “Southern Spirits” is a tune written by Robert Sput Searight and features the always awesome MonoNeon on bass.
While I’ve been lately focused on his work with Ghost-Note, any time MonoNeon drops a new video, I’m watching. In this clip, he takes Madlib’s “Fallin” track and adds some seriously funky bass to it.
Live for Live Music is presenting a one-day virtual music festival on Saturday, May 30th. The line-up includes some terrific bassists, including George Porter Jr., Mononeon, Erick "Jesus" Coomes, Tony Hall, Nick Daniels III, and Pete Shand.
I’m always excited to see a video from Ghost-Note hit. About a week ago, MonoNeon shared this one of the band performing “Phat Bacc” during a Sugarshack Session. So funky!
