We’ve teamed up with our friends at Stones Throw Records to co-host a listening party for the release of LA-based producer Mndsgn’s latest album, Yawn Zen. Mndsgn, Knxwledge, Annhu, Matthewdavid and guests will be spinning poolside at The Line Hotel this Saturday from 2-7pm.
Mndsgn (pronounced mind design) is Ringgo Ancheta, who, raised on a the outskirts of a commune in rural New Jersey, started making beats after one of his first excursions into modern society – a hitchhiking trip to Philadelphia – introduced him to the world of music and samplers. Now residing in Los Angeles, the songs on Yawn Zen were recorded “in a state of bliss”, as the name of the album implies. Says Ringgo, “I’ve allowed myself to study the absence of daily struggle and its effects and began to subconsciously paint that vibe in the music. Yawn Zen comes from a very neutral place that we, sometimes, are too busy to realize is there.”
