MonoNeon (US) and ECHT! (BE) for the first time in Prague!

Mladí ladí fest adds two new names and the Czech premiere of one of the most outstanding bassists in the world!

MonoNeon (US)

The American bassist Dywane Thomas Jr. aka MonoNeon is unmissable with his eccentric image and unmistakable music, for which critics have coined the term avant-funk. In October he is finally coming to Prague with his solo project! The Memphis native and one of Prince’s last collaborators has a Grammy Award for his participation in rapper Nas’ King’s Disease album, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers himself has called him the best of bassists. One of his most recent singles, Quilted!, featured a guest appearance by the King of Funk, George Clinton. A couple of weeks ago, he checked in with a great album, Jelly Belly Dirty Somebody. You just need to see this live!


Belgians ECHT! are all rooted in jazz and mix electronic and hip-hop into their music. But it’s all live, using instruments and the human element. ECHT! are known for their explosive live shows, as evidenced by the fact that our programmers booked them for the Mladí ladí fest after seeing them play at the Eurosonic showcase.

During 2020, the band won the “Fresh on the Scene” award from Red Bull Elektropedia and is gradually building a growing reputation across Europe. Fun fact! No one in the band is originally from Brussels. Bassist Federico Pecoraro is from Italy, keyboardist Dorian Dumont is from France and drummer Martin Méreau and guitarist Florent Jeunieaux are from Mons, Belgium. Interesting, isn’t it?
