Dywane Thomas, Jr. also known as MonoNeon, is an American bassist and experimental musician. He is known for his presence on YouTube playing bass guitar and known for being one of the last people to work with Prince. Thomas also played with Grammy Award-winning R&B artist, Ne-Yo, on his fourth studio album. He is a native of Memphis, Tennessee. While Thomas is right-handed, he plays left-handed upside down on a right-handed bass guitar, which allows him to use heavy string bending on the upper strings. Thomas' slapping style/technique is unique because he is executing everything upside-down, but he still uses the thumb for slaps and fingers for pops. He also uses fingers and palm muting to create a warm, muffled timbre and have a little more control over the length of notes. In a free/improvisational setting, listeners may hear the use of Indian melodic inflections/embellishments in his playing, including the use of gamakas. Another attribute in Thomas' playing style is the use of randomness and personal mistakes in performance, eventually moving the mistakes from meaningless to meaningful. Thomas' overall playing style on bass can be described as "funky with unusual characteristics". Even musicians like Marcus Miller have noticed his playing style. His musical background is heavily influenced by southern soul, blues and funk. In a Bass Player magazine interview, Miller mentioned Thomas as one of several "young bad cats" he has met on the scene.
JD Beck is a 15-year-old ASCAP artist from Dallas, TX. He began his drum career at age 8; and, started producing at 12. JD is currently collaborating with French keyboard phenom, DOMi Degalle. They are playing multiple dates as headliners in the US and France, as well as opening for KNOWER and Louis Cole. He has played shows in Dallas, LA, and NYC with Jon Bap; including two shows with Anna Wise. JD and Bap are currently in the studio working on both artists' upcoming albums. In 2018 JD opened Bless You Bruja, Erykah Badu's birthday party concert. He also opened a series of Yellow Days shows with Jon Bap. JD has headlined JD Beck and Friends sets at multiple Deep Ellum area venues. In addition, JD provides drum tracks for multiple producers around the world. JD is mentored by multi-Grammy winner Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy & Kendrick Lamar), Mike Mitchell (Willow Smith & Stanley Clark), and Cleon Edwards (Erykah Badu & Jill Scott). Formal lessons, jam sessions, and clinic attendance are all part of JD’s commitment to honing his craft.
