"Monopol" consists of "Mono", Mario Voelkel, and "Pol", Denis Hartzsch. They met in 1998. Their fondness for classical, electronic music ever since connects them and is documented by numerous productions in their musical life.

Since 2000 they work together on projects under the name "MonoPol". When it is time, they mix off their recorded works. That means, "Mono" assumes the technical side and takes care of arrangements and beats. "Pol" refers to the playful and harmonious part of the formation. Occasionally, they have reversed the roles, which means, "Mono" plays the melodies and "Pol" triggers the rhythms.
