Like his brother-in-beats Knxwledge, MNDSGN represents a new wave of Stones Throw visionaries offering soulful, funky and left-field soundscapes live and direct from Los Angeles.
On Bodywash, MNDSGN was inspired by early SOLAR records like Leon Sylvers III,Kashif, and Dave Grusin—artists that MNDSGN says, "really embodied that potent feeling in the early '80s boogie/funk/soul/jazz/fusion wave." He adds, "I was also digging back into some early '90s R&B sounds and started really imagining what it would be like if I had mashed the two eras together."
In advance of the LP's September 16 release, Ancheta has shared "Use Ya Mnd (Twentyfourseven)" which is streamable in full via the player below. The video for lead single "Cosmic Perspective" is also available to play below, having been shared previously.
