RIYL: J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Madlib
Label: DLoaw & Co. Records
If you dig the beats more thanÂ the bars, it’s time you met Mounika, French producer and sampling wizard. Â Mounika pays respect to sweeping orchestra arrangements and the classic chanteuse over trap beats andÂ Clam Casinos, resulting in tracksÂ that sound as vintage as they sound freshÂ (see Lupe Fiasco’s Daydreamin‘ or Murs’ D.S.W.G.). Â Picture Ă‰dith Piaf and J Dilla smoking spliffs and sipping espressos in a hideaway studio in the country and you’ll get a track likeÂ De Roses Et De Colombes.
How Are You?Â marksÂ the first full-length in Mounika’s career that’s been cut to wax, andÂ DLoaw & Co. Records have 500 copies of the album on white vinyl after the ‘buy’ link. Â Check out two tracks off the forthcoming album on Bandcamp as well as 2016’s Seagulls on Spotify below.
