Monnakoe Raises the Temperature

June 25, 2010

I had the ultimate pleasure of meeting this trio almost 2 months ago.  They have an awesome vibe with one another, jokes for days – along with the charisma you only hope a band has when you get to sit down and chat with them.  Although they absolutely do not fall into the realm of hip-hop, their sound is more trance/electro-pop and is definitely for the open-minded music lovers.  I’ve been told more than once that Monnakoe is at their best when performing live, so I can’t wait to see them in their element!! Check the bio blurb below along with the chune!


Seven years in the making, Toronto’s Monnakoe is quickly becoming one of the music industry’s best kept secrets.  It just takes one listen to become a convert – just ask the thousands of MySpace fans who can attest to that.  In a single month on MySpace, Monnakoe gained over a thousand fans in addition to getting over 10,000 plays on their page!  Their single “Trust” remained on the Top 10 Canadian chart for several months in the electronica, indie and pop genres.
The trio is comprised of a Keyboardist (Patrick), Guitarist/Songwriter (Mark), and Drummer (Kyle).  With a sound that seamlessly fuses elements of various genres, this trio manages to effortlessly blend raw emotion of rock, and house, with a definitive electro-pop influence.  As the group prepares for their debut album, they are driven to create and follow their own path. The group maintains their love for the element of live performances – citing it as the ideal way to interact with listeners. Their current single, Temperature is hitting radio right now — Become a convert by checking out Monnakoe’s MySpace at
