It's no secret that the most reliable and widely-used online platform for independent artists today is Most unsigned acts, and an ever-increasing number of established labels, have Bandcamp pages. So it is with local hero MonoNeon, who has parlayed his online presence into a global fanbase who eagerly await his many split-screen videos on YouTube. MonoNeon is no stranger to Bandcamp, releasing nearly all of his self-produced albums and EP's via the platform.

Thus, it comes as no surprise, but nonetheless a delight, that Bandcamp has turned its own power of exposure on MonoNeon himself, featuring him in today's Bandcamp Daily under the title, "MonoNeon, the Funk Bass Maestro Carrying the Torch of Duchamp." See our recent article for more about MonoNeon's background and accomplishments. Then head over to to read Daniel Schwartz's informed and witty take on his career thus far, with oodles of audio clips.

And don't forget to check out the latest videos on MonoNeon's YouTube channel. Here's one posted earlier this week, "When The Neon Pearly Gates Open" (featuring Daru Jones & Lance Lucas) a video filmed by Aiko Tanaka at Electric Garden in Brooklyn, NY. It's a tune off his latest album, I Don’t Care Today (Angels & Demons in Lo – Fi), released earlier this year on — you guessed it — Bandcamp.
