Mndsgn. – Body Wash

Mndsgn (born Ringgo Ancheta) grew up in south New Jersey, raised with Gospel music at church, and B-Boy culture at home. Experimenting with beat-making, he befriended fellow producer Knxwledge and the two formed the influential Klipmode collective (along with Devonwho and Suzi Analogue). Mndsgn’s music flourished when he moved to Los Angeles, catching the attention of Stones Throw who released Yawn Zen (2014), an LP of introspective and mostly instrumental beat creations, punctuated by vocal cuts.

Body Wash is his second album for Stones Throw, a full set of realized songs that were only hinted at on Yawn Zen. Influences here include the likes of early SOLAR records material, Leon Sylvers III, Kashif, and Dave Grusin. These artists, Mndsgn says, “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.” He explains Body Wash as “a soul record that plays with nostalgic elements in a very dynamic & positive way. Think about it as a box of crayons for you to draw emotions with.”

The album was built around a backstory, a loose narrative thread through which he could filter his unformed ideas. In the narrative, a homeless man encounters a mysterious woman who gives him shelter. She instructs him to bathe with a very peculiar body wash. As he soaks and sinks deeper in a thick lather of this unknown solution, the man finds himself transported to an alternate dimension. Mndsgn describes the story as a vessel “that would allow me to speak on topics that were universally relatable … The story actually became a true outlet for me to address worldly issues with Self.” The resulting album also represents a dynamic step forward in songwriting. Without explicitly relating its plot or characters, the album as a whole turns on the story’s key theme, the psychedelic, transformative power of love.

Kirkis / Mndsgn – Cold Crush

Also Available On: 7″ Vinyl Single

Kirkis is essentially a madman.

We first came to know him as an affiliate of the Hiatus Kaiyote crew from Melbourne, with a completely unique brand of lo-fi, maniacal proto-punk, jazz-funk fusion that was unlike anything we’d heard before. All with his own equally bizarre & wonderful paintings and video art to go along with it, at that.

We tried to sign him for an album deal in early 2010, but he had already promised a record to another label. So we asked him to remix a track (“Kikhabits”) from Mndsgn’s Breatharian record, for the Inedia project, instead. He was into it and played around with the track for a few weeks… but things seem to have taken a sharp turn somewhere, and what he ended up turning in for the project was a completely new song – one that took from Mnd’s original session a barely noticeable percussive clip and nothing – which Kirkis was calling “Cold Crush.”
